Fuelcards.net promotes new fuel locator iPhone app with iPad competition
The new fuel station locater app is said to be the UK’s first free iPhone app that uses GPS location data to find the nearby service stations and identify which fuelcards can be used.
The app links to over 5,000 service stations across the UK that carry all major cards including Shell, Esso, Texaco and Keyfuels and include popular brands such as Morrisons, Somerfields, Murco, Total and Jet. Using a simple interface, users can set preferences such as; proximity to location in either miles or kilometres, 24 hour service or HGV access.
Suitable service stations can be displayed as either a list with address and telephone number or pinpointed on a map outlining distance from current location – drivers have the option to use their GPS to link directly to Google Maps for directions.
'This is the first totally free iPhone app of its kind and will be a revolution to drivers who travel the country on a daily basis,' said Sarah Adams of Fuelcards.net. 'Our main aim is to provide UK businesses with useful tools and solutions to make re-fuelling around the UK as cheap and simple as possible.'
