Timeshare Guide for iPad
By Worldwide Timeshare Hypermarket
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Timeshare Guide for iPad is a concise overview for those considering buying or selling timeshare and provides users with a resort directory of our most popular timeshare resales around the world.
The opportunity to buy a timeshare resale can prove a great option compared to the ongoing costs of package holidays although the concept can prove rather confusing to first time buyers. Covering topics such as the differences between fixed, floating and points-based timeshare to the basics of “What is Timeshare?”, timeshare guide aims to be a useful resource for those considering timesharing holidays.
A resort directory section provides information on a selection of timeshare resorts around the world along with photo galleries for many of the resorts. To provide users with an idea as to the huge savings possible when purchasing a timeshare resale, we have also included some examples of weeks available to buy. The resort directory can either be accessed from the standard menu or a handy Map feature giving user the opportunity to locate timeshares easily from around the world.
Once downloaded the content contained with the Timeshare Guide is stored locally on your device which means that you can even use the app whilst your device in Airplane mode.

Timeshare resale listings
This application is a tool for showcasing resort weeks being sold by a UK-based resale company. It includes a brief overview of the resorts being sold and includes map, photo and current (resale) inventory.
At 25MB, it doesn't impress me as an app worth installing. This type of content is better served via web page than application.
In general, the content is worth only 1 star. I gave this a 3 star for the pretty wrapping. One can easily see that the developers did some nice work. Sadly, I have no reason to keep the app on my iPad, it has already been deleted.
A) Expand the organization of resort listings and add Search. When I searched the resort listings for "USA and others" I was disappointed to be presented with a random list of resort names with discernible organization. This would be a good place to further break the locations by state. And please clean up the list. While "USA and others" might include Virgin Islands and other US territories, I don't expect it to include resorts in Mexico.
B) Remove the link for Photos from the map page. This link simply goes to a page of random photos again lacking organization. Better the appropriate photos should have been linked directly to each resort overview.
C) Take advantage if the iPad's Map tool. Don't try to write your own?
