TouchFoundry launched “FillApp” in South Africa, a locally developed app that will help save consumers money when it comes to the recent volatility price of fuel in South Africa.
According to the developer, many South Africans find themselves not knowing whether to fill up sooner rather than later, and a misstep could easily cost them over R100.

“The aim here was to develop something simple, intuitive and unobtrusive,” says co-creator Fabio Longano. “Apps have become an integral part of our lives, but many of them don’t take the consumer into account. FillApp has been designed to fit seamlessly into your day-to-day, empowering locals to save money.”

The app has been designed for easy usage, no registration whatsoever, no pesky ads, gives real time push notification when the fuel price changes, monitors every fuel type with smart predictions, help you know when to fill up, and help your friends save by sharing alerts.

FillApp uses information available on agency and government websites to predict price changes. According to Co-creator Lance Jenkin, “There is a lot of publicly accessible information that isn’t necessarily ‘accessible’ as per say, to the public. Every-day-people aren’t able to access this data efficiently and conveniently when they need to. So we did the time, crunched the code and came out with an elegant product that will hopefully add a touch of convenience to everyone’s lives.”

FillApp is free and available on both Apple and Android devices.
