There is a very interesting app on the iTunes website for DVC members and those who rent from DVC members.  It's the DVC Planner for iPhone and iPod Touch.

Here is the word straight from the iTunes website.

Vacation Planning At Your Fingertips!
DVC Planner is a fast and easy way to plan your upcoming DVC vacations.
Using the easy, intuitive interface, one enters in their vacation information.
The DVC Planner then gives the user the following:
1. How many points are required.
2. 11 month and 7 month reservation call dates
3. 180 day and 90 day call dates for dining and events

The link for the app can be found below.

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObje....03&mt=8

The app can be had for a pittance.

There is a website for the app at http://www.webspydercode.com in which is contained important 'information' on the 11 month and 7 month call dates.  The vast majority of dates put out by the app are correct, but there MAY be an issue with a select view dates.  This information is fully explained on the website.

The 180 and 90 day call dates are correct, rock solid.

Rumor has it that someone very special did the icon and intro images for this app.  Someone very close to us.

That person would be none other than - Rich Koster!  He did a great job, I think!

I recommend this app very highly — and not just because I helped with the graphics! :thumbsup:

How do you like it, Eddie?

I can operate the app with my thumb, holding it with one hand, so it's very easy to use. I also like how I can use it to get results, then go back and change, say the view, and the other info will be as it was. This allows me to quickly change something and recalculate. Of course, even going from one vacation scenario to a completely different scenario can be done quickly.

My daughter grabbed the phone from me as she saw that I was playing with the app, and was able to use the app immediately, so it is very intuitive.

Overall, it's pretty nice and seems very stable. The app does not crash, as some apps have been known to do.

Hey everybody!  I read today that version 1.1 of the DVC Planner for iPhone and iPod Touch should be coming out within the next two weeks.  It is currently in review at Apple.

And the best news is that it allows us to save vacations!

The details can be found at  the WebSpyderCode website!

The creator of the DVC Planner app for iPhone and iPod touch -- CodeSpyder -- needs pictures of the following resorts for a future version of the app:

  • Old Key West
  • Saratoga Springs
  • Hilton Head Island
  • Vero Beach
  • Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel


They can't be official Disney pictures and people who submit them need to have taken the photos themselves and would give up ownership of the photos. The pictures will be cropped and resized as necessary when used in the app.

If you can help, email the pictures to codespyder@webspydercode.com
