Sygic, the company behind one of the world's most popular mobile navigation apps, has purchased Fuelio. And to sweeten the deal for users, the company is making all of the app's pro features available for free. That includes Dropbox and Google syncing, a widget, and detailed information presented in the form of stats, summaries, and charts.
In case you've never taken Fuelio on the road with you before, this app logs how much you spend on gas and how much you're getting out of each gallon. With GPS support and Google Maps integration, you can track all the places you get gas.
Fuelio was born as a single Android developer's private project, and it will remain in his hands. Now he's just working for Sygic. So yeah, this is more a story of one guy getting a new job than a big company buying a smaller one. Regardless, enjoy the free stuff. And yes, the app remains ad-free.
