On Friday night, WDWNT had a live 3-hour broadcast to celebrate its 9th anniversary. During that time, some major announcements were made, including WDWNT: The App! If you missed the show and all of our announcements, you can watch them here:
Here’s a quick rundown of what WDWNT: The App can do:
– All the latest news from WDWNT at your fingertips, including push notifications
– Listen to all of the WDWNT.com podcasts (WDW News Today Podcast, Around the Hub, WDW News Tonight, Radio Free Disneyland, “See Ya’ Real Late”, Nerd Alert, ETC.) streamed to your device
– Listen to continuous Disney Parks music & audio from WDWNT: On the Air streamed to your device (with the ability to run in background for the first time on iOS)
– Watch the latest videos and shows on the WDWNT YouTube Channel
– Accurate park hours for the Disney Theme Parks from our WDWNT Now! service
– See the latest tweets from the WDWNT Twitter feed without leaving the app
– Shop for WDWNT gear at WDWNT: The Store
The Android app includes a few extra things, including an Android TV version and push notifications of new WDWNT blog posts.
The iOS app includes the ability to join the WDWNT: On the Air chat right from the “On the Air” screen. This feature will come to Android soon. Push notifications for iOS is in the works and we hope to have that soon.
As Tom mentioned during the broadcast, we know these apps have been requested for a while and we made them just for you. We hope you enjoy them! If you would, please stop by the appropriate app store and leave us a rating. Also, please let us know what you think of it after you get to play around with it for a while.
I want to give a quick shout out to Michael V. Battista and Nick Turpchinoff for their help in creating these. Thanks guys!
