Impressive Concept, A Few Things Lacking

I've been using this app for about 2 months and it operates decently. As people have mentioned, the transition from "gunning it" to ridiculously slow starts is alarming at first, but I have adjusted to it. According to another review, there's no iPod access through the program which may be a turn-off for some people, myself not included.
One huge issue I am having is the one decimal in the fueling section. Where I feel that another digit or two past the "tenths" is necessary to reflect fuel costs on all gas fillups. I.e. 2.85 gallons would have to either rounded up or down to 2.9 or 2.8. I think that this minor Change Would improve accuracy dramatically, especially considering all stations fuel up to the hundreths Place.
There is also a glitch where the Application shuts off when the vehicle changes. That's annoying at first, but it doesn't keep the user from selecting a new vehicle. Of course a couple of tweaks could fix this bug in future versions.
My final suggestion, aside from fixing the fuel cost digits is to have a gradual training segment (as optional, of course). This training app will not freak speeders out and gradually bring them down to lower speeds, rather than jumping down to it. Perhaps the intensity could be turned up between gas fillups.
Regardless of the future of the application, I have found that it is worthy of remaining in my collection. It is a very decent program built on an impressive concept. I HAVE saved money, which was the initial reason for purchasing. Thanks for that!

Save gas by driving smoothly

This app is designed to help you avoid hard acceleration and braking whenever possible. In tests, frequent bursts of acceleration and braking reduce the fuel efficiancy by 2 to 3 mpg. Once up to speed on the highway, maintain a steady pace in top gear. Smooth acceleration, cornering, and braking also extend the life of the engine, transmission, brakes, and tires.
I think much of the confusion would be avoided if the developers were to add a help section that instructed users on how to properly place their iPhone and how to use it while driving.
Also the stats section should give you more options on what time frame you look at. I don't want to wait for two months to start observing the affect on my driving.
Doesn't read properly and way over priced.
