    Tired of long lines at Disney? Now, there's an app for that

    From the Orlando Sentinel

    "Like most people, Brent Pope of Jacksonville gets annoyed by long lines at Walt Disney World.

    So after Pope, 44, was laid off from his job at an ad agency few months ago, he decided to do something about it. He developed "Wait Times" — an iPhone application that will tell you how long the lines are at the Magic Kingdom.

    Approved for sale by Apple on Tuesday, the "app" depends on other users to supply wait-time information. They choose from a list of rides and then enter or view the wait for that ride. The more information people report, the more useful Pope's 99-cent app becomes."

    I think it's really neat that people can develop their own ideas, cost-effectively for the most part, and people like Mr. Pope here, with little to no programming experience, to not only make a buck but provide a service to those of us who are impatient and spend thousands of dollars to take a vacation to Disney World and now be able to access information like this to make the trip even more worthwhile.

    So this app is pretty much useless unless people take the time to buy it then actually go eat in a line, then report the length of wait. That's .99 well spent. Lol.

    Iphone should have a pregnancy test app, "fill in pun here" that might be more useful.
