British Gas revamps its meter-reading iPhone app

Reading your gas meter? There’s been an app for that for a while now, at least if you’re a British Gas customer in the UK. Now the app has been relaunched as v2.0.1 with new features.

The update now lets you see your account balance, last bill amount, and when your next payment is due. What’s more, it includes pretty graphs of your energy consumption over the last two years.

British Gas says more than 100,000 people have already downloaded the app, with 18,000 meter readings submitted through it in June alone.

“More customers already contact us over the web than by telephone and with these new features, we expect that our App will quickly become the main way that many of our iPhone customers will manage their British Gas account,” says Benjamin Braun, head of the company’s online services.
