I bought the ipad. 1st thing I downloaded was the app for the iconcierge. I look everyday at my countdown clock. Going on the Epic we can connect to it no charge for all kinds of stuff. There are excursions, the daily's, restaurants, shopping & more stuff. Looks great we'll see once we're on board. Can't wait. Is it January yet???
Thanks for the info, I just grabbed this and it looks like there is some great potential!
I can’t wait to see everyone’s experiences and try it in 155 days!!!!!

The app is great when you are on board the Epic. I really loved the feature where you could look at dining menus, make dinner reservations and look at the daily activities. We paid $7.95 each for the messaging option. unfortunately the phone option did not work as it would lock up the app when trying to use it.

I have it downloaded on my phone and tablet (Android) and will use it next month when I sail on the Epic.
There is another app available that is quite useful before you go (it would require internet access on the ship, whereas iConcierge is free!). It's called Ship Mate and it's available in the Play Store or on iTunes. It has deck plans, excursions, tips about the ports and more as well as a countdown clock.
