Laughing Place's WDW GPS Transportation Wizard for iphone - anyone tried it?

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gps-...500674561?mt=8

Just wondering if anyone has tried it and if so, whether you thought it was handy enough to justify the $2.99 price.

Thanks!

Many transportation experts here feel that OLP has been full of inaccurate information for years. That is their website. I could not speak to the app because I never tried it. I long ago stopped referring people to their website for transportation routes. Maybe someone that has used the app could confirm or deny if the information in it is more accurate.

It's still filled with inaccurate information. An example WL-MK
Bus to Transportation & Ticket Center
Transfer to Monorail to Magic Kingdom® Park


Bus from WL to TTC stopped running years (10+?) years ago.

It uses EPCOT as a transfer point to DHS and to the EPCOT resorts. No mention of walk through EPCOT or the need for park admission.

I haven't checked their app but see no reason to think it's better (or even needed)
