Tracking your petrol with FillApp

By Staff Writer
With the petrol prices changing every month, trying to keep track of them can become difficult. Just with everything else in life, there is now an app to do just that
 
FillApp is a locally developed app, by TouchFoundry, and uses the size of your tank, and the petrol you use to determine how much you will save (or lose) when the petrol price changes.
 
The app will send a reminder each month informing you of the fuel price change, how much you'll save and whether you should fill up before or after the change (depending if it's a price increase or decrease).
 
The app is 100% free to download and use.
 
"The aim here was to develop something simple, intuitive and unobtrusive," said co-creator of FillApp Fabio Longano.
 
Longano claims that this app takes the consumer into account, something many other apps don't do.
 
"Apps have become an integral part of our lives, but many of them don't take the consumer into account. FillApp has been designed to fit seamlessly into your day-to-day, empowering locals to save money," said Longano.
 
FillApp uses information available on agency and government websites to predict prices changes. Even though there is a lot of publicly available information on fuel prices, many people do not have the time, or the means to go and sift through government sites to find it.
 
"Every-day-people aren't able to access this data efficiently and conveniently when they need to. So we did the time, crunched the code and came out with an elegant product that will hopefully add a touch of convenience to everyone's lives," said co-founder Lance Jenkin.
 
FillApp can be downloaded on Android and iPhones.
