I have the free version of the Undercover Tourist app for iPhone, which is pretty good for park hours, crowd estimates and wait times. It also has a dining section.

We also have WDW Dining, which we use for storing our ADR reservations #'s. I wish it had a way to enter the numbers on the computer, instead of input the information on the phone. It has a food finder which uses your GPS to guide you to the closest food that you are looking for. It was free when I got it a couple of years ago. They do a pretty good job of keeping the menus up to date.

Check out this story on DVCNews.com. Several DVC iPhone apps. Unfortunately for me, nothing for the Droid, yet.

Ihave an IPhone and use D Point. It took my awhile to get my points correct in there but now it's good to go and I love it for easy access to my point info and how many points certain trips will cost instead of going on dvcmemember.com

I found the Undercover Tourist App for Droid on the marketplace. Search for Disney and look for Disney World Wait Times Lite.

I have both DVC Planner and D Point. I much prefer DVC Planner. You can do a lot more with that one. Currently they're each running $1.99.

As far as Disneyworld park apps go the Undercover Tourist one is excellent with a good variety of things it can do. WDW Hours is a good one, easy and to the point simple.

I have looked at both the DVC Planner and D, neither one schedules anything other than trips to the DVC properties. In addition to the them we book at the Concierge Collection as well as go on cruises. Is anyone aware of an app that can track all that?

I've been playing with it over the last few days and there is much much more detail in what you can do with this app. I was very pleasantly surprised to even see a slide out box listing the room cleaning days for our upcoming trip.

The other app is fine too but just not as in depth or detailed as the DVC Planner.
