    IPhone and Touch Application

    Howdy folks!! I want to create a new iPhone/IPod touch application for the parks. I realize there are quite a few of them out there, but I want to create one that will be a "one stop app" for the parks.

    With that said, I want to get some feedback from you all here in the forum as to what you think the most important, as well as the blue sky ideas anyone might have for it.

    Here are a few features I know I want.
    GPS maps - like the upinpoint maps. (the GPS will only be on the iphone but the map will be on the touch too)
    GPS keyed trivia, and notes on where you are in the park at that time.
    Character locations
    Schedules (parades, character meets etc)

    Thoughts or comments are welcome.

    Follow me on twitter @mainstdisney

    It was all started by a mouse
    "WALT DISNEY WORLD is a tribute to the philosophy and life of Walter Elias Disney . . . and to the talents, the dedication, and the loyalty of the entire Disney organization that made Walt Disney's dream come true.

    How about meal prices and wait times?
    Disney World is not just a place, but an experience.

    All ideas are great so far. How about a WDW weather forecast that's in the app rather than opening another one?

    How about a PUSH notification to let you know that a show or parade is starting? Maybe have it so the user can put in what events they want to be alerted about.

    Hidden Mickeys and a guided tour would be cool

    Re: IPhone and Touch Application

    I think having an iPhone app is great. If you do decide to program the app, you should make it similar to the official Disney Parks app from Verizon. It should have all what that app offers, such as Daily Events, Dining, and other items that the Disney Parks app has. I have a question though. Since Verizon gets it's queue line, fastpass times and character showings directly from Disney, how do you propose to incorporate that into the app? If it's possible to get that info real-time, then you would create THE app for any person with an iPhone for WDW.
