If you’re the type of guy who drives 12 miles off the highway to save a nickel on gas, well, this app is more like GasBestie. By rewarding users for reporting real-time gas prices with points (that they can later redeem for FREE gas), this app tracks the price per gallon at local stations across the country. So, even if there IS a Casey’s at this station -- and everyone is starving -- you can save 8 cents a gallon at the station a mile away with a Blimpie or, if you're lucky, one of the best gas station restaurants in America.
Fun as it is dumping out your pockets and pouring through crumpled receipts to figure out how, exactly, you blew your entire trip budget in two days, this app makes that process a lot simpler. Just use its “quick add” feature to input every purchase you make, and it’ll itemize exactly where you're spending all of your travel money.
Once upon a time, people used crazy things like pens and paper to write down all the cool stuff they did when traveling. Haha, silly people. Like a way-sexier LiveJournal, this app allows you to upload travel stories and photos to a more user-friendly platform than your typical blog, and then either share them on social media or email them as PDFs.
Have you ever been in a new city, wandered into a random music venue because it “looked interesting,” and subsequently sat through a “progressive improv” show headlined by a guy imitating a third-grader on the trumpet? As fun as that evening was, this app finds cultural, sports, and music events in a given location based on your personal preferences. It’s currently available in five cities but is growing, so -- unlike that dude playing the trumpet -- stay tuned.
