148Apps got a chance earlier this week to talk with Bart Decrem, SVP of Disney Mobile, and their plans for the holiday app push. Disney has some big plans in the coming two weeks.
Mr. Decrem shared with us some great growth numbers, showing that daily users of Disney Mobile games has grown six fold over the same period last year, up to over six million daily active users. In addition, Where’s My Water? has now seen over 100 million downloads shared between it’s free and paid versions.
But the really exciting stuff comes from the app updates and new releases planned over the next couple weeks. Here’s a quick rundown.
New Title: Monster’s Inc. Run has been created in partnership with Get Set, makers of the great Mega Run. It’a a level based runner this time featuring characters from the Monster’s Inc. movie. This is out today!
Released: 2012-12-13 :: Category: Games
New Title: Nemo’s Reef This one, is odd. But a city builder with Nemo as the central character is sure to grab fans. This will be out on December 20th.
Where’s My Holiday? is a new release, based on the Where’s My? franchise and includes characters from both Where’s My Water? and Where’s My Perry?. This free holiday-themed app is expected on the 20th as well.
