Leaky is excited to announce the launch of our very first app for Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad: LeakyNews.com’s Guide to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, available to buy RIGHT HERE via iTunes!

LeakyNews.com’s Guide to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a fun and comprehensive guide to the theme park in Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. The app is packed full of all the useful information you need to enjoy your time at the park to the fullest. With this app, you can learn about the different shops and what they sell; find out all the useful information you need about the rides, shows and attractions; and discover the hidden magical surprises throughout the park. You can also find out CURRENT wait times for the rides, and help out your fellow theme park fans by submitting wait times as you ride.
The app costs .99 and includes many fun and helpful features, including:

  • Full list and descriptions of shops and attractions
  • Where and what you can eat and drink
  • Tips for finding the hidden magic
  • All the useful info you need about the rides, including height restrictions
  • Current wait times for the rides
  • A map of the park to help you find your way around
  • Facebook connectivity to share your thoughts on the rides
  • Choose your House and change the color scheme of the app

This app was developed by the Leaky Cauldron and written by our own Chris Dotson, Video Galleries Manager and Senior Staff member of Leaky. You can download the app for your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad for the low price of .99 right here!
Enjoy!

Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: That is so cool!!! Great job Leaky!!!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: FIRST!!Avatar ImageMelissa Anelli says: Leaky's first app is an App guide to WWoHP. We're very proud and hope you all enjoy it!Avatar ImageLauraKeaton says: Will you be putting one out for the Droid anytime soon? Not all of us are Apple people.Avatar ImageChrisDotsonTLC says: Hi, Laura! The Android version is very nearly finished. I hope it will be hitting the Market within the next week if not sooner!Avatar ImageJPHufflepuff says: I'm guessing this is one of the two big things Leaky is doing to celebrate it's anniversary. If not, then I can't wait to see what else is coming. Either way, well done! I downloaded it right away and I already love it! Beautiful artwork by Frak! Wish I could print out his version of the map :) This will come in very handy @ LeakyCon!Avatar Imagedantobias says: Why does everything have to say it's from "LeakyNews.com" these days? That's actually just a redirect to the real address of the site, the-leaky-cauldron.org. (But it may be that the .com address is more appropriate for it these days, since the site seems to be very commercial nowadays; those ads that blast sound at you every time you load a page are very annoying.)Avatar Imagedantobias says: (But I think I'm going to buy the app anyway, since it'll be very useful when I go to the park, hopefully soon; I haven't set a trip date yet.)Avatar ImageMelissa Anelli says: We use leakynews.com simply because it's shorter, and a .com is infinitely easier to remember than a .org. Even longtime readers and associates often refer to us as leakycauldron.com, even though that has never been our domain. Leaky's name is the most difficult thing about it for our readers. :) We're sorry the ad is annoying, and wish it didn't have to be there. But we are glad you seem to like the app! It's going to be updated mucho in the future, soon, too.Avatar ImageKimmyBlair says: Love it!!! Great job Chris! I can't wait to go to the park to use it!Avatar ImageCarinaPotter says: What a great idea!
