    FastTrac Disneyland App Unveiled at MacWorld

    During MacWorld this week, a new app for the Iphone and the Ipod Touch were unveiled on Wednesday.  The whole purpose for the app is to help visitors to Disneyland in California reduce the time they spend waiting in line for rides. What the FastTrac app does differently then other app is it creates a schedule where you will wait less time in line for some of your favorite rides.  During the testing the maximum amount of waiting time was about 10 minutes even for the most popular rides such as Splash Mountuain. It also supplies the user with a map of the park. How the app works is that users choose the attractions they wish to ride, the date they will be at the park, and the time that they will be arriving. Then FastTrac(TM) creates a schedule for the user that will get them on the most rides with the least amount of wait time.
