Best Ever
I couldn't have done Universal without it! Showed me exactly where I was and how to get to where I wanted. The food button with all the menus, I mean the best! GET THIS APP it will be the best trip! Oh and the wait times too,

Magic Guide: Universal Orlando
I love this app and made the additional purchase for the extras. My only complaint is updating the app. There are several things which need correcting because of something closing, restaurants adding food to their menu, or changing prices. I like this layout better than the official Universal App. Easier to look at and see the food locations and menus. I do use this for meal planning so it would be great if it was up to date. Thank you!

App works mostly as advertised
App does what is should except for family sharing as described when purchased. Our family sharing does work as my wife and I share purchases maxed by the other. This does not. Customer support says read the previously sent complete guide. The complete guide doesn’t resolve the problem. Single user works pretty well. Family sharing does not. Would rather have my money back.

Upgraded for up to date wait times
Upgraded for the up to the minute wait times, yet now just showing closed and not giving any wait times. I even submitted an accurate wait time, it thanked me, still didn’t update. Will improve rating if fixed.

Good App
This is a pretty good app for navigating around the Universal Properties, worth the exception of its coverage of Volcano Bay which is somewhat lacking. Perhaps this will be corrected in the future.

The only thing worth while is the map. The wait times are completely off and the menu items for the food places are completely wrong and out of date.

Apple Watch not working
So annoyed I paid for the Apple Watch upgrade and it doesn’t work on there. It was working a couple days ago. Please fix ASAP. I’ve tried restarting phone and watch with no luck.

This app is great!
Don't pay attention to Jocaroth's comments. This app can do all the things Jocaroth says it can't (except for an ability to log the rides you've ridden). This app and the one for Disney World is awesome! The ability to look at all of the restaurants and their menus and prices is amazing and saved us a lot of time walking around! The wait times are user loaded, so if you walk by an attraction and notice a wait time update it in the app this way it is more accurate. 5 star app!

Total Waste of Money
I just spent two days trying to use this app. The maps on it are VERY general and lack any detail, showing mostly just major rides but missing a LOT of details. The map SHOULD use GPS to show where you are in the park but it doesn't. The food guide only shows fast food options and even then misses a few of them. I wanted to eat a real meal but it was not showing Mythos Restaurant even though I was right across from it! (Mythos is one of the best food options there, BTW.) Someone SHOULD make an app that does the job i had expected this to, but I found that this one is a major disappointment. I should have listened to my daughters, who had asked why I bothered buying it after seeing how useless this company's Disneyland app was.

This has everything you need to have a great experience at Universal. It shows where you are on the map. It shows the wait times for every attraction. It shows the menus with prices for every restaurant. It shows you what is closest from your location. It shows where you can find the food that you were looking for. The maps are great. I couldn't imagine doing Universal without it.

Great Tool!
I have both the WDW and Universal Studios apps and I absolutely love them. So far I've only been using the dining and maps portions for planning our upcoming trip to both parks and they're worth every penny. Speaking of dining, I sent VersaEdge an email two days ago asking about possible a Volcano Bay menu update and just like that, today I see the menu! If the GPS map works half as good it will be icing on the cake for me! Well done guys!

Wasn't impressed
The map feature was the only one worth using and a few times it showed us in the water or another section of the park. Don't count on the wait times being accurate. We walked to the other side of the park to ride MiB ride (said the wait time was 50 minutes) but found the ride was closed. I reported it closed on the app and it never updated. I tried it a few times and it finally showed up at 120+ minutes (not closed). I use an app for Busch Gardens (Williamsburg) that is FREE that's keep updated much better than this one for $3.99. I'm submitting a request for refund from Apple.

Love it!
I use this app every time I go to Florida and I would never want to deal with the crowds without it. I also check the line times throughout the day in the days just prior to our trips so we know what are the busiest times and how to plan around crowds. This app is SO handy while at the park but also a very valuable planning tool so you can make the most of your day at the park!

Pretty OK
We were only at Universal studios for 1 day. It was reasonably up to date on ride wait times. Digital maps were helpful. Dining menus were accurate for the items. Prices are very out-dated. There was no way to update food and vending prices they way that wait times could be updated. To get 5 stars, I would like to see real-time mapping with location service and current pricing. All in all, though good app for the price.

Very helpful!!
It was great to have a map and wait time at my fingertips! Loved that part. I paid for the premium because I understood that I would be able to see where I was on the map. But that is not how it works. As far as I can see the basic is the same as premium so stick to the basic. Great app. Thanks.

The best guide app
This app not only shows you the map of the park but also guide you through the park and tells you waiting time for a ride. Yes, the restrooms location are missing from the free version. I assume Universal studios did not pay for the app and they did, that will be so unfair that they couldn't provide their customers with this app for free considering the insane cost of getting into the park. This app is awesome.

Knowing wait times helps!
This app allows you to see what the wait times are looking like so you can decide where to head to next. You can also customize it for your favorite rides. It helped us make numerous decisions allowing us to ride all the rides (some multiple times)!!

Great App!!!
This app is amazing. I only needed it for a day but it was incredible. If I was allowed to I would've given it 10 stars but it only goes up to 5. I highly recommend this app for anyone who needs a map of the park, wait times for the rides, or how cheap or expensive the food choices are.

Very useful
This app made my first visit to Universal so enjoyable. Having all the wait times currently updated was very helpful. The dining feature with the menus made it easy to decide what to eat. The map was very useful too. A must for newbies to the park.

Way to ruin a vacation
The park opening times starting August 1st are off. For those of you that know how important getting to the park early and hitting rides on a schedule, this ruined our entire day. We saw signs at the park listing 8am early opening but trusted the app would have the right time and thought this was for resort guests as we knew they always got in an hour early. 5 minute waits became 50 min plus waits. Two children disappointed at how few rides we could go on in our day. Two parents regretting purchasing the app.

Wait times are never updated
Have been attempting to use this application for the past 3 days hoping to get some insight on what the wait times are for each universal ride. Unfortunately they are hardly ever updated. And even when they are they seem to be inaccurate. If I were you I'd just pay attentions to the estimated wait times outside each individual ride instead of relying on this faulty application.

Great Tool
Was glad to find and use this app. Spent 2 days at the park and found this very useful. Wait times. Ride height minimums. Restaurant guides. All were helpful. A GPS feature might be helpful but watch out the Disney App that uses GPS uses ALOT of battery and FAST. Wait times appear to rely on users so please submit as often as you can to help us all.

Could have a little more Info.
I loved being able to have the wait times and the restaurants menus were a huge plus! I wish the Park Maps were a little more descriptive. It would also be really awesome for people to be able comment about the rides or rate the rides.

Wait times never appeared!
This was a complete waste of money. The maps are not current. We waited in line to eat, only to get to the register and find out we couldn't use our passes because the restaurant was removed from the QS list. Also, the wait times stayed "--" all day and would not let us update with our own wait times. Besides, there were signs around the park that scrolled updated wait times and ride closures.

Magic guide app
Overall it was handy to have. Helped us with wait times to decide where to go. Restaurant guide was helpful for venue and pricing. Unfortunately the menus on app are not up to date so don't count on a menu selection actually being on the menu when you get there. Happened to us twice.

It serves me well
All I need to know is about park hours and waiting times and it tells me well. Also, I can find the menus which is great to me. The only only thing is that I have to pay to know where the restrooms are located but overall I like this app.

Wrong park hours!
This app had the wrong closing time for universal studios every night this week! A park app is only as good as the information in it and if it can't get the simplest thing right like closing time, it is useless. I went from IOA to US expecting the park to be open until 7 , only to be ushered out after my first ride since the park actually closed at 6 that night. Use the official app or touring plans app instead.

Good, self reported
Good app, but there are others that are free. This one has the wait times, maps and restaurant info all in one. The wait times are reported by those at the park and are relatively accurate. May be off, but still good direction.

Too much money, not enough info
This app has some conveniences, but for four dollars I expected a whole lot more. The free app from universal is just as good, and well... free. I'm kicking myself for buying this one. I fell into the trap that it must be better than the free one because of the price. Yeah, no. It's not. Handy to have something like this with you in the park, just choose one that doesn't charge you.

A) why does this app cost a dime? Didn't I pay to get in the park? I laugh that they hand out maps like candy by charge for this app B) the wait times were rarely accurate - off by as much as 30 mins C) if it showed your location and provided transit times it would be much better

Map, No Times
This is a great app if you want to have a map and and a short description of the attractions for both parks. Do not believe the wait times though, because it can be changed by anyone. Very helpful app.

Good but not accurate
It is accurate on many rides but the hulk has been closed since September 8. It is now October 2 and they still list the ride as open with a 25 minute wait time. The Hulk is in pieces with much of its track removed. Don't know about you but I wouldn't want to ride it.
