Disney Releases First Windows 8 App

Disney Publishing Worldwide has released its first app for the new Windows 8 operating system, “Disney Princess Dress-Up Sticker Book.”

Designed specifically for the new OS in partnership with mobile app developer Vectorform, the app features the Disney Princesses in an interactive story and dress-up sticker book.

Children are encouraged to read along and interact in creative dress-up play with each Disney Princess while exploring royal weddings and special celebrations.

“Disney Princess Dress-Up Sticker Book” is now available for Windows 8 devices in the entertainment section of the online Windows Store.

Windows 8 was released last Friday and features significant advancements in touch technology and mobile interfaces, designed to make the operating system more competitive in the smartphone and tablet market.

“The new touch interface of Windows 8 is highly conducive to creating deeply engaging storytelling experiences for children and their families,” says Lyle Underkoffler, vice president, digital media, Disney Publishing Worldwide. “We’re thrilled to bring the ‘Disney Princess Dress-Up Sticker Book’ app to life on Windows 8 and look forward to creating more content for our readers to enjoy on this platform in the future.”
