Disney World Apps Are Springing Up Everywhere

Having an Android phone I found out that the keyword Disney returns a lot of results on the Android Market.  I also found out from other people that the same stands true for IPhones.  The IPhones seem to get a few things more than others like apps designed specifically by Disney for use in the parks.  Androids aren’t special enough I guess.

When you look at Blackberry phones there aren’t many apps as of yet, but being the Blackberry is making some bold moves they will probably get a few more apps in the future.  I had a Blackberry on Sprint many years ago.  I found that the Blackberry was not an all around phone.  It was more for the business person.  When you are in Disney next look for Blackberry cases on peoples belts.  It appears that the Blackberry market is slowly converting to Androids, and IPhones.

Here is a factual quote that I ran into…

“Over the three-month period ended April 30, Android nabbed a 36.4% share of the market, while the iPhone took a 26% share and RIM fell to third place with a 25.7% share, down from 30.4% in the three-month period ended Jan. 31, according to the ComScore report released Friday.”

What is your current phone?

Disney Should Work With Other Companies

On a recent trip to Disney World I decided that I would do some searching for some Android apps that dealt with the parks.  What I ended up finding were just a few demo versions that were out, and then there were the paid versions of the same.  There are apps to monitor show, ride lines, and more.  After not finding anything that was actually published by Disney I found out that Disney did have their hands into the Android market, but it appears that only Verizon gets access to the app.  I had, and still have Sprint.  Back when I first started looking for an app I had a HTC Hero with htc sense.  Now I have a Galaxy S phone.  Why is that?  They could make so much more money if they allowed other carriers access to the same app.  I love my Android, but I just wish that someone would work it out with Disney to make an app that I would enjoy using each time I go to Disney World.
