GasBag Pro and 2.0

After a long wait, the new version is finally out with an awesome map and much better car tracking support. For those of you who want to track more than 1 car, please buy GasBag Pro for only 99c from the AppStore.

Below is the press release that's going out tomorrow:

JAMCODE LAUNCHES GASBAG PRO

99 cent version tracks multiple cars and ad-free, while free and paid versions have much faster maps


Mountain View, Calif. – February 11th, 2009 – jamcode LLC, the leader in rich-mapping applications for the iPhone and iPod Touch, today announced the launch of GasBag Pro and GasBag 2.0. Both enable users to locate gas stations and the cheapest gas prices while on the move, wherever, whenever.

New features in version 2.0:

• Faster panning and zooming with a new map
• Personalize your car by make, model, year, and color
• Much more stable and responsive to the touch
• Still 100% free with advertisements

GasBag Pro also provides:

• No advertisements for a bigger, easier to view map
• Track mileage and expenditure for more than 1 car
• Easily port data from GasBag into GasBag Pro
• Only 99c


GasBag was first launched in the US in late August 2008 and is available for FREE. Since then the GasBag community has grown at a staggering pace, with hundreds of thousands of dedicated users in the US, UK, and Australia.

“We rely on the constant feedback of the users and testers to ensure GasBag remains the best and fastest gas price finding application on the iPhone and iPod Touch,” said Mick Johnson, CEO and Co-Founder of jamcode LLC. “We’re looking forward to a fantastic 2009 for GasBaggers everywhere.”

GasBag also provides a logbook that calculates metrics such as miles per gallon, average price per gallon, etc. This allows GasBag users to budget and track gas expenses more efficiently. Because GasBag knows your location, how many gallons you filled, and how much you paid, that also feeds the price at that station back into the community. Users of GasBag Pro can now record these purchases and link them against one of several cars. Watch the latest video at http://jamcode.blip.tv/.

Both GasBag and GasBag Pro are available for download from the AppStore today.

Any plans to support Canadian gas stations?

It looks like this is not compatible with 3G iPhones running 2.1 firmware (like mine). Is this right?

Marius said...

great job. Always loved the app. Happy to send you 0.99.

Can't figure out how to port the data?

GasBag runs fine on my 3G iPhone 2.1 firmware.

Hmmm, ok so why does iTunes say that GasBag 2.0 is incompatible with my iPhone 3G running 2.1?

Great job getting this release out.

I've been very happy with GasBag and I'm going to get the Pro version.

This works great! Some feedback that I have is that Chevron has recently starting selling gas at two prices, one with cash price and the other with credit price. I would like to have the capability to look for gas at a cash price or a card price and also update the prices accordingly. Love your app though!

I just downloaded the update, and I'm also getting a message saying that the application in incompatible with my iphone, like David...

Any ideas?
