GasBuddy app freezing iPhones – Fixed


A recent version of the popular GasBuddy app which allows users to crowd source petrol prices to find the best deals is causing some iPhones to crash.

The latest version of the app, released with iOS 12 compatibility, is causing iPhones to go to a black screen with a spinning wheel.

The issue seems to affecting users of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

To get past the issue force restart your iPhone and do not launch the app until you install the update from the app store (version 5.34.1).

To force restart your iPhone 8 or later:

  • Press and quickly release the Volume Up button.
  • Press and quickly release the Volume Down button.
  • Then, press and hold the Side button until you see the Apple logo.
