Disney Mobile has released the “Where’s My Water? Free” edition and it’s now available on the App Store, Android Market and Amazon Appstore for Android. Going ‘Freemium’ is a popular model for mobile apps, let’s see if it works wonders for Disney. They’re obviously putting some firepower behind it. Take, for instance, this trailer:
“Where’s My Water? Free” is available for download on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad at on the iTunes App store.
Download the app on Android Market.
Are you a Verizon customer with an Android phone? Then you’re in luck, Disney Parks and Verizon have just reduced the price of their “Mobile Magic” application down to nothing. Yep, download it for free right now and next time you’re in the parks get accurate wait times and fast pass information in real time. iPhone users will have to wait as that application is still in development.
This is a good move for Disney, I never understood why they charged people to learn more about the parks in the first place. Seems like they’d want their guests to be better educated about their in park choices so they can have a better time and tell others about it, hence bringing back more families in the future.
With NextGeneration (NGE) technology coming soon, Disney’s relationship with Verizon is likely evolving and may dissolve completely. That will allow those who have other carriers to get in on the fun. But for now, it’s only for Verizon customers. Thankfully I am one, I’ve now downloaded the app and will try it out next time I’m at the park.
