Undercover Tourist App

I know we have discussed Apps on here before..and I know some of you are better at this app business than me (ahem, Mase..JustCar/CarJust) but today I got a new app from Undercover Tourist on my iPhone. It is awesome! It not only has ride waits, but hours, parade times, restaurants--including menus and if they take the DDP. Previously I had WDW Waits and it was cool--but this is awesome. Anyway, I know this isn't a new thing because it would be impossible for me to have discovered something new..I downloaded the free app...has anyone purchased this app? I was just wondering what the difference was between the free & the paid versions..other than adds.

I don't have an iPhone and no one seems to make these apps for BlackBerry, LoL! Sounds awesome though.

Not sure what the paid app gets you but the free one works great. Ride times are very close (5 to 10 min off) and the park crowd level is accurate as well. We used it for 3 days in June had no problems. It was recommended from one of my friends who had used it previously. If it would only make reservations for you then it would be perfect.

I think the only difference between the paid app and the free one is the paid one doesn't get advertisements. I'm able to just ignore them on the free one.

I have the paid app and it seems to have a bit of everything, what do you have for choices on the free one?

You're a mind reader! I was thinking..wouldn't it be awesome if you clicked on the restaurant and it allowed you to see if there were any open ADR's for that day?

It has wait times, menu's, a stoplight system to tell you park crowds, parade times and EMH's.

I like it..I am glad to see that it has worked in the park successfully...I think it will be a big help on our next trip. It will save a lot of "let's walk over here and see how long the wait is" business that Dave & I seem to do ALL the time.

I would pay good money for a app that would do that. Are you listening Disney???????

I would love for that in an app, but Disney themselves would have to do it, and it always seems that when it comes to technology... they are behind. Plus I think they are in with Verizon with that app, and have to stick to that for a while. Thats my thought on why there isnt a specific Disney App for the iPhone and even Droid.

But after checking this app out... its not to bad, but im just sold on the Magic Guide. It costs, but its sooooo good.

They do... but its in pieces like The World Map is its own thing... wait times and so on. If you want to try them out, search for Versaedge Software, and you will find them all. Magic Guide is 5 bucks... but it has everything you could want. Has a list of all of the food places, with menus, if its on the dining plan and such...

Heres my review of it in detail with pics.

But also keep in mind. You get the MAgic Guide... you can have it on both the iPhone and the iPad.

I agree the magic guide is awesome... Just the other day we were driving in the car and Evan was talking about wanting to ride a certain ride and we wanted to check the height requirements for brooklin and all I had to do was click on the ride in the app and we had the height requirements
