The wildly popular TWiz App just got a whole lot better with the release of GPS TWiz. Now you can navigate the Disney transportation system at Walt Disney World using a familiar and intuitive map-based GPS interface. You can view your location, use pinch/zoom or double-tap gestures to zoom in and out, and select beginning and ending locations for your trip from the map in addition to the list.Are you boggled by maps and prefer to just search for words? On the super duper GPS TWiz, you can search for locations using a convenient search bar. Tap "START" or "FINISH" to select an endpoint by the name of the location, then you can search the list of locations by typing text in the search field at the top. For example, type "art" to find Disney's Art of Animation Resort - it's just that easy. s
GPS Twiz puts the fun in functionality! Simply pick a starting location (where you are) and then pick the place you want to get to. Mr. Wizard will promptly make fun suggestions about how to get there using Transportation. Mr. Wizard also estimates how long it will take to get there. By tapping on the route, you get lots of helpful tips about the transportation system and you can share your experience of times and tips with other users. A long press will bring up the option to share a route with a friend.
Imagine you are on your first trip to the Grand Floridian. You arrive at your hotel, unpack your bags and call your friends who happen to be staying at the Boardwalk Inn. You decide you want to meet for dinner at the Flying Fish Café… but you don’t have a car, and you have no idea how to get to the Boardwalk from the Grand Floridian. You whip out your iPhone and the GPS Transportation Wizard comes to your rescue; promptly suggesting several routes involving boats, buses, or monorails. He even tells you how long it’s likely to take so you won’t be late for dinner. Thank you Mr Wizard!
Or, perhaps you are a veteran of Disneyworld and love planning daily itineraries. You plan your trip, making a careful schedule of where to eat and which parks to go to when. You decide that a fun day at the Hollywood Studios would really be nicely topped off by dinner at Chefs de France. But how long is it going to take to get there, and what is the funnest possible route (this is a vacation after all!)? You pop out your iPhone and fire up the GPS WDW Transportation Wizard who gives you several recommendations. Oh my gawrsh, I didn’t know you could take a boat from the Studios to Epcot! That sounds like fun! But I will have to allow at least 37 minutes for that trip so we better leave by 5PM to make sure we are in time for dinner at 6PM. Thank you Mr Wizard!
The GPS Transportation Wizard puts even more pixie dust magic of trip planning in your pocket.
