Ratings and Reviews
What a DVC App Should Be
Helpful. Let’s me see where I've allocated my points and helps me plan future vacations. Love this.
Follow up to September 2015 review
As the subject line indicates, this is a follow up review from September 2015.
I emailed the developer with the issues I was having this app, and within a day or two he responded. He seemed to genuinely want to help to improve my experience with the app as evident with almost a half dozen back-and-forth emails.
Initially, although he tried several angles and ideas, he was unable to solve the issue the app was having with my iPhone. I had written it off as a failed attempt when I received a follow up email about a week later. The developer had continued to toy with different solutions until he happened upon a resolution that was effective. An update was made shortly thereafter and the app has worked as intended since.
The fact that a solution was found is not what impressed me. It was his willingness to establish correspondence with me as an individual to try and resolve this conflict. I hope that more app developers demonstrate this quality.
I am an iPhone user and always maintain the latest iOS updates.
Better than ever
This app is wonderful! Intuitive to use, it really helps me keep track of my precious points. Developer is very responsive and worked with me to address bugs. Highly recommended!!
Love the new reverse feature, thanks for adding it :)
The new manual feature for Fixed weeks is another excellent update to this invaluable application. Best in class!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
