Disney Animated Named iPad App of the Year for 2013

Disney Animated D23 Expo 2Now there is even more reason to explore Disney Animated — Apple just selected it as the top iPad app of the year. Out of thousands and thousands of iPad apps, this is number one! Congrats Disney Interactive!

Here is how Apple describes the app, “Enchanting tour of Disney’s legendary film vault awes with a bounty of animated sequences, interactive character models, and a spellbinding presentation.”

So how does an app take the coveted spot at the top of the list of roughly 100,000 iPad apps? By creating a world of animation right at the fingertips of their users. We first heard about Disney Animated at the D23 Expo this year, and it won us over immediately! (pictured)

Discover how Disney animated films are brought to life with information on these magical subjects and many more:

  • Art in Motion
  • Story
  • Visual Development
  • Creating Movement
  • Character
  • Layout in Background
  • Design Language

Being able to uncover decades of Disney animation in the palm of your hands, literally — now THAT is incredible. Disney Animated allows the user to peel back the layers of their favorite favorite films and really see, learn and understand the process; it’s like turning your iPad into an animation workshop. The app gives you access to an astonishing amount of material from all eras of Walt Disney Animation Studios, beginning with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) and continuing through an exclusive in-depth look at Frozen. The crowd at D23 Expo really went wild when the presenters showed the page on the app where every scene from every film comes together on just one screen. Pretty incredible, right???

This is the first time Disney has been awarded this commendation, and we’re sure it won’t be the last. The app, a joint project of Disney Interactive, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and developer Touch Press, was also selected by Mashable as a Mashie Award finalist for Best Branded App. On top of that, it was awarded Best Digital Book in the FutureBook 2013 Innovation Awards, and recognized as one of the 50 best apps of 2013 by The Observer.

You can purchase and download the app for $9.99 on iTunes. We think it would make the perfect holiday gift for the Disney fan, Animation lover, or artist in your life.
