FillUp - Fuel Prices for Queensland, Australia(Brisbane/Gold Coast/Sunshine Coast and some other areas) [ALPHA]
Want to know the petrol prices in your area without leaving home, straight from your phone? FillUp is a compilation of over 300 petrol stations in Queensland, Australia(mostly concentrated in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast) presented in an extremely simple and smooth user interface. It can:
• Show the petrol prices for up to 5 different fuel types for a station, depending on data availability.
• Use the location services in your phone to show you the nearest 3 (at minimum) petrol stations from where you are right on start-up.
• Show you fuel price history for up to 2 weeks for each fuel-type that is available at a station.
• Compile a list of your favourite petrol stations for quick viewing.
• Search for petrol stations based on postcodes or suburb names(ex: "4001 Brisbane", "4109", "Camp Hill", "Carina" etc).
• Show you all the stations currently in view on the map and rank them from lowest to highest price for that day, separated by fuel type.
This application is still what should be considered an ALPHA Version. We're based in Brisbane and going to be making a lot of changes to it over the next couple of months. Some things to keep an eye out for are:
• Pricing for other areas in Australia including VIC & WA(Only QLD at the moment). Also more pricing for rural areas(most stations are in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast at the moment).
• Optimisation of the search feature.
• Proper graphs for price history.
• Recommendations on whether to buy now or not, based on pricing history and fluctuations.
• Notifications to tell you when prices are low or when prices break a certain point.
• Better tablet optimisation(works fine on a tablet at this stage but there's big room for improvement with the interface).
- New all stations on map feature.
- Closed a few more minor bugs.
- Added data caching, should reduce loading times a bit.
