Mr. Border - Border Wait Times
By Object7 Technology Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Mr. Border provides the most up-to-date border wait times for the USA/Canada and USA/Mexico border crossings by combining both official wait times and real-time wait time information reported by actual border-crossing travellers.
See what the current gas prices are across the border! Gas prices are crowd-sourced, so make sure you report the latest prices when you fill up so you can help others.
Stay on the right side of the law by calculating how long you may be in the USA before you become unlawfully present or accidentally satisfy the IRS Substantial Presence Test.
Plan your shopping trip with the offline shopping directory! Download the shopping directory and you can view all the outlet and shopping malls in your area, including mall hours, list of stores, and offline maps - even when you are roaming without a data connection!
* Note: the offline directory and offline maps are currently only available for the Pacific Northwest region (Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle, and Portland). More regions will come in the future.
Use the handy price converter and see how much you are saving! You can also convert gas prices between US dollars per gallon and Canadian dollars (or Mexican pesos) per litre.
Check what you are allowed to bring back home with you after your travels with the handy Duty Free Allowance information page.

What's New in Version 4.0
Border Buddy has grown up! He now goes by the name Mr. Border.
Don't worry- only the name has changed. The App still contains all the same border-crossing features that you're used to.
And we've been busy working on a few new features as well, so stay tuned to the next few updates!
Rather inaccurate and not reliable
I cross the border a lot. I find this app to so often be inaccurate it wastes a lot of time. The whole purpose of this app is to inform people of wait times. Once again, totally misled. App said 0 min and 6 for a close by crossing. Once I got to the 0 min crossing it was apparent that it was more like 15 min, longer than the other crossing. Once I was at the crossing it suddenly said 11 min. I know those 100~ vehicles didn't show up in the 3 minutes. I could have saved some time. Actually it often say a short time and ends up an hour, so very very unreliable at its main purpose.
It used to work fine
The money conversion feature is not working anymore. It can't grab the financial data from Yahoo.
I've tried "app support", but it took me to a webpage that doesn't let me submit any kind of message for support.
Everything else works fine, but the money converter would be nice to have back.
Says updated but does show correct wait times
The app said 10min wait times however it was almost 45 mins wait times. I checked app said updated at time I checked. It looks like app servers are not correctly updating times.
