Import/export added to Gas Log

The latest versions of Gas Log and Gas Log Pro are now available on the Android Market.

The update adds two new features: import and export. You can now export your log as a CSV file to the SD card. From there, you can pull it off your SD card and save it as a backup, or use any spreadsheet tool, like Excel, and do whatever your heart desires with the data.

Importing has also been added, which should make switching to the paid version of Gas Log simple—just export the log from the free version and import it into Gas Log Pro.

So far, the free and paid versions have been the same (except that the free version is ad-supported). Going forward, that’s going to change. The free version will still get bug fixes and features, but the paid version will get all that plus some extra nice features. For example, that three digit precision that users have been asking for, more statistics, and maybe even Fuelly support.

Gas Log 1.0.5 released

The latest version of Gas Log is now up in the Android Market.

Based on user feedback, 1.0.5 replaces the “average total cost” statistic in the rotated graph view with the “average price per gallon.”

Note: there was a version jump from 1.0.3 to 1.0.5 because 1.0.4 contained a minor bug that I quickly fixed.
