GasHog version 1.5 available today

GasHog’s latest update, version 1.5, has just been approved by Apple, and will be available for download and free upgrade in the iTunes store starting today (Saturday, September 27). This version represents some of the most requested additions from GasHog users:

  • the ability to e-mail a backup of each vehicle’s filling log for data safekeeping or import into a spreadsheet
  • a keypad for quick entry of the amount of fuel added and the total cost
  • additional precision for amount of fuel added
  • support for additional digits of cost for countries with varied currency
  • touching the vehicle name at the bottom of the display brings up the vehicle list for quick switching (if tracking multiple vehicles)
  • stats display now includes cost per distance statistics over time
  • various cosmetic improvements and bug fixes

Before upgrading any iPhone/iPod touch application which stores data on your device, you should always synchronize with iTunes to make a backup. I am led to believe that version 2.1 of the iPhone/iPod touch operating system has solved the data loss problem that plagued earlier versions, so please make sure you’ve updated your device before installing the GasHog update.

This release resolves most all of the requests I’ve received for enhancing GasHog. As always, feel free to contact me as the support e-mail address if you have any problems, feedback, or requests!
