    What is the best app you've found for accurate wait times, fast pass info, maps, what's near me and keeping track of dining reservations? Is it too much to hope for one app that can do it all?

    I have yet to find a good one to keep dining reservations on, but I have found that Touring Plans Lines' app tends to have the most accurate wait times, etc. I have AT&T, though, so perhaps the Verizon Disney app is superior...

    I use Mobile Magic (Disney) and also WDW Waits (VersaEdge Software). I compared the 2 just this past weekend and found both to be reasonably accurate. :thumbsup2

    And iPad should have access to the same apps that an iPhone does, right?

    The apps mentioned above should be fine for an iPad.

    Apps that work on the iPhone will work on the iPad.

    Not always. If you go to the app store and see a + on the icon, then it works on both. Surprisingly, there are still some apps out there that are only for the iPhone.

    The "+" indicates a universal app - it contains a version of the app designed specifically for the iPad, and a version of the app designed specifically for the iPhone, both in a single package.

    But you can still run a non-universal iPhone app on the iPad. It will display in a small window, the size and shape of the iPhone. You'll see a little "2X" button in the lower right corner of the screen, which will make the app fill the iPad display, but it's often a bit pixelated, as it wasn't designed for the iPad's screen resolution or size.

    sorry in advance for hijacking, but would I be able to get thee apps on an Ipod touch?? And if so, how?? Sadly I used to be pretty computer literate, but have no idea about the Apple devices.

    My DS17 loaded the app from Disney on his iPod Touch and it worked very well when we were there in August.
