'Disney Animated' for iPad Covers the History of All 53 Disney Films

by

Disney has launched “Disney Animated” for iOS, an interactive app that encompasses the history of animation and technology for all 53 films by the company. The app includes features such as interactive animations that feature Disney characters and the ability to zoom in on concept art and backgrounds to see intricate details. Also, the app allows users to animate a character from Wreck-It-Ralph using an onboard 3D animation package, as well as early looks at upcoming movies with viewable work-in-progress animation.

Discover how Disney animated films are brought to life. Explore pages packed with interactive images and multi-layer animated clips. Animate authentic Disney 3D character models, and control a Disney visual effects simulation. Browse a rich timeline of all 53 Disney animated feature films, and more.

The app is being released in conjunction with Disney's 2013 D23 Expo happening this week, in which Steve Jobs and "other talented contributors to Disney History" will be honored with a Disney Legends award. Specifically, Jobs is being recognized for his role at Apple and his contributions as an early investor and chief executive of Pixar, along with his work on the Disney board of directors.

Disney Animated for the iPad is priced at $13.99 and can be downloaded through the App Store. [Direct Link]

It absolutely sounds cool, but I'd wait for reviews before I shell out $13.99.

Hmm. Was ready to buy… but it seems they don't like iPad 1 owners. Booooo. I'd love to know what's so demanding about it that it won't run in iOS 5.


Probably just the developers of the App enjoy using the new features of iOS 6 and don't want to look back. Like auto-layout, UIKit improvements, and all sorts of framework features. Developers don't want to re-create the wheel.

Touch Press's Blog has good info about this app and the publisher

Theodore Gray has a great article about this App on the Touch Press Blog (http://www.touchpress.com/blog/2013/08/disney-animated/).

For those unfamiliar: Touch Press (http://www.touchpress.com/) is a publisher of top-shelf content for the iPad. Their App "Barefoot World Atlas" was one of the featured apps in Apple's 5 Years of the App Store (https://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewFeature?id=660896396&mt=8) event earlier this month. The first Touch Press app was "The Elements". Touch has a great version of the old Tom Lehrer song in their App:




Touch Press co-founders Theodore Gray and Stephen Wolfram are two of the principals of Wolfram Research (http://www.wolfram.com/). Wolfram makes Mathematica, a way to compute and compute and visualize all sorts of mathematical operations. Wolfram's Computable Document Format (https://www.wolfram.com/cdf/) files are a way to distribute that content and freely run it on PCs (and "coming soon" to iOS and Android (http://www.wolfram.com/cdf/adopting-cdf/supported-platforms.html)). I think that CDF is a very cool thing; the available CDF downloads are a great way to visualize/interact with a bunch of scientific principles.

Will this be available for android?

Touch Press hasn't published anything for the Android platform. OTOH, if you look on their FB page, you'll see they've listed some jobs for Android developers early in 2013. They have about a dozen titles for iOS and have released none for Android yet; don't hold your breath.

I'd say that MR is a strange place to be asking this question, but you did get an answer. :)

WOAH! the price...and the Size!
