Disneyland Secrets Gold - iPhone & Icon - 75%

This app actually launched almost a month ago.  That shows just how far behind I’ve been lately!  I just got time to look over Disneyland Secrets Gold, and I have to say that I really enjoyed the app.  What can you expect from Disneyland Secrets Gold?  You’ll have to jump inside to find out!

Disney on the iPad: Day One.

Posted on

iPad Well, it’s here!  This is the day many of you have been waiting patiently (or not so patiently) for.  I’ll start this post off by making one thing clear: I don’t have an iPad…yet.  But it is making some big waves in the technology world, and Disney is riding those waves.  What Disney-related apps are available on the iPad’s first day?  Here’s a list of some interesting Disney apps you can get right now:

  • Disney Fairies Fly on iPad. ($7.99) – Join your favorite fairies on a flight through Pixie Hollow!  Enhanced with "stunning graphics and new art just for the iPad," this game allows you to tilt your iPad to guide the fairies along their flight.  Try to collect items and Pixie Dust, but be aware of dangerous hazards!Fairies Fly
    • Toy Story Read-Along(FREE) – This fully interactive read-along book is a completely free app.  It’s packed with "Games, Movie Clips, Coloring Pages, Sing-along Tunes, and Surprises on every page."  You can also have the app read the narration to you, record your own narration, or just read on your own.  A great learning tool for your young iPad users!  (Toy Story 2 Read-Along also available for $8.99).Toy Story Read-Along
    • Phineas and Ferb Arcade on iPad($2.99) -  Phineas and Ferb Arcade includes three games starring the characters of the Disney Channel and DXD cartoon series.  Play Cowabunga Candace, Agent P’s Hideout, and S’no Problem – all with graphics and music from the show.Phineas and Ferb Arcade
    • ABC Player(FREE) – Another free app with great features, ABC Player allows you to watch your favorite ABC shows anywhere.  Watch full streaming episodes and view ABC’s programming schedule.  Plus, if you need to finish an episode late, the app will remember where you left off, allowing for an uninterrupted viewing experience!  ABC Player
    • ESPN ScoreCenter XL($4.99) – ScoreCenter XL is the "premier game companion experience for the iPad."  You’ll get video highlights, live play-by-play, full box scores and scoring summaries, live in-game statistics, complete standings, and game previews and recaps.  Follow your favorite teams, check out the news, and stay on top of the score with push scoring alerts.  (ESPN Pinball also available for $3.99).ESPN ScoreCenter XL
    • Marvel Comics(FREE) – I may have saved the best for last.  This app looks like a great use of the iPad.  You can browse and download your favorite comics, then experience them like never before.  Use guided view to see a panel-by-panel path throughout the book, or use standard pan and zoom controls to make your own way through the story.  Comics can be saved and backed up to your Marvel.com – ensuring they’ll be waiting for you if you upgrade your iPad later (or you break your iPad – knock on wood).  Marvel has a few downloads available for free, so make sure to check them out!Marvel Comics 

There are a few more Disney iPad apps available, so leave a comment below if you’ve used any others.  Also, be sure to let me know if you’ve used these apps!  I’d love to know what you think of them.  Disney also launched a custom version of Disney.com with exclusive video content.  To read Disney’s iPad press release, click here

Review: Disneyland Park Guide Notescast.

This is an interesting review for me.  With the other Notescast reviews I’ve done, I’ve been familiar with the parks.  It’s hard for me to get to California, though, so I’ve yet to make it out to Disneyland.  This is almost like a tour of somewhere I’ve never been, which is a unique experience.  It gives me a different perspective than I had with the previous Notescasts.  I’m excited to jump into this app, so click below if you’re ready as well!

Disney and the iPad: Post-Announcement.

Posted on

iPad

First of all, I’m holding off on the “how do you feel about the iPad” debate for now.  I have my reservations (as you may have read on Facebook), but I want to really play with the iPad before I make any official opinions.  In this post, I just want to take some time and talk about Disney’s part in this whole shebang.

Review: WDW Secrets: Hidden Mickeys & WDW Secrets: Main Street, USA Windows Notescasts

Posted on

I’ve had a blast reviewing these Walt Disney World Notescasts this week.  Last time, I reviewed the WDW Secrets and WDW Secrets Gold Notescasts.  I chose to review those together because they are so closely related.  Originally, I was going review them alongside these two apps as well because they all four take you on tours to find the hidden secrets of Walt Disney World.  I didn’t want to try to cram everything together, though, so I decided to split them into two reviews.  If you’re ready to some more touring, click below to read my review.  And keep your iPhone or iPod Touch close at hand: you may need to visit the App Store!

Review: Walt Disney World Secrets & Walt Disney World Secrets Gold Notescasts.

Posted on

Recently, I got the chance to review the Walt Disney World Guide Notescast, a great tour guide of Walt Disney World for the iPhone and iPod family.  TimeStream Software put together a great product, so naturally I was intrigued to see how their other apps were.  This review will be a combination of two Notescasts, Walt Disney World Secrets and Walt Disney World Secrets Gold.  As you can tell from their names, the apps are similar in many ways.  What differences can you expect?  How do the apps hold up when compared to the WDW Guide?  How are they overall?  Click below to find out!

Review: Walt Disney World Guide Notescast.

Posted on

The App Store is home to over 100,000 apps.  Disney fans will find a ton of apps related to their favorite Disney movies, music, and theme parks.  This week, I’ve spent a lot of time with a couple of apps in particular.  In this review, I’ll give you my thoughts on the Walt Disney World Guide Notescast.  It’s a mobile guide to the Walt Disney World Resort, designed to be easy and convenient to take with you to the parks.  But does it beat carrying an actual guide book?  You’ll just have to click below to find out!
