The award-winning app from Touch Press and Disney Interactive, Disney Animated, has been chosen by Apple as the best iPad app of 2013 worldwide, in the App Store Best of 2013, celebrating the most remarkable, innovative, and entertaining apps of the year.

In a description on the App Store, the editorial team at Apple comment: “This enchanting tour of Disney’s animated film vault awes with a bounty of interactive character models, animated sequences and an absolutely spellbinding presentation.”

To date, a remarkable 12 of the Touch Press’ titles have been selected by Apple as Editor’s Choice or App of the Week on App Stores worldwide. This is the first time one of the company's apps has taken the coveted Editors’ Choice spot: iPad App of the Year.

We and our partners put our all into every one of our apps to make them the best they can be.
