APP WATCH: Disney comics for Apple devices

It's available for both the iPhone and the iPod touch, but we suspect the better platform for the Disney Comics App is Apple's iPad tablet.

According to Pocket-lint, the official app is free, but of course, that's only half the story. It's all about the in-app purchases here, with more than 50 comics available at launch, including classic Disney characters such as Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse as well as new Disney stars from the Pixar movies such as Buzz and Woody from Toy Story. All are 59p each once you've downloaded the free app. If that's not enough for your Disney-loving child, there will also be content from Disney films such as the new Tron movie and High School Musical.

'Comics are a tremendous part of our heritage and we see great potential and interest in bringing our extensive catalog of Disney Comics to mobile devices,' said Russell Hampton, president of Disney Publishing Worldwide.

'We create over 25,000 original comic pages each year and it’s critical that we deliver this content to our readers around the world. We have over one billion Disney comic readers today, and our Disney Comics App will further broaden that audience.'
