So one of the things off a few of my app stories I’ve heard is what about Android? Well Disney is sending some love Android’s way. Disney Publishing is releases several interactive storybook apps. Some now available for the first time are:
- Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Paint & Play
- Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Wildlife Count Along
- Minnie Bow Maker
- Disney Princess: Story Theater
The push comes with the rise of Android tablets and smartphones, which make it a smart business decision for the Mobile areas of Disney to expand to. Apple still has the tablet majority as of this year, but Android has surpassed it on the smartphone side. Granted that is in part due to sheer number of manufacturers cranking out phones with a pretty solid operating system (I actually like both Android and iOS).
They released 8 apps that hit the top ten Google Play paid app list, and plan to release more in waves each month. Expect to see a lot of the top apps on Google Play with Disney logos for the foreseeable future.
