Disney/ABC Television Group Launches Disney Channel Photo Finish App

[Via Disney Channel Press Release...]

Disney/ABC Television Group is launching the Disney Channel Photo Finish app on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Fans can now get creative and personalize their own pictures with their favorite characters from "Phineas and Ferb," "Gravity Falls," "Shake It Up" and the highly anticipated Disney Channel Original Movie "Teen Beach Movie."  The app is available now for free in the App Store at

Using the photo app, fans can snap and stylize their pictures with show themed stickers, specialty frames and filters then share with family and friends. So whether fans want to dress up with Perry the Platypus' bill and Dippers hat, throw a beach party with the Surfers and Bikers of "Teen Beach Movie," or rock a photo shoot with Cece and Rocky, they are now only a few taps and swipes away from giving their pictures a custom Disney Channel Photo Finish.

Premium sticker packs are available for 99 cents for each show. Soon to follow updates include "Starring Role" functionality that allows fans to insert their faces into some of their favorite show scenes and characters, as well as "Watch and Unlock" sticker packs beginning with "Teen Beach Movie." "Watch and Unlock" will allow fans to sync the app with any encore viewing of "Teen Beach Movie" to unlock free bonus sticker packs such as "Bikers vs Surfers" and "Sing & Dance."

"Photo sharing is extremely popular with the Disney Channel fan base. Fans love taking photos and then applying different filters and photo finishing techniques to express their creativity," said Lauren DeVillier, vice president of digital media, Disney Channels Worldwide. "The Disney Channel Photo Finish App makes it possible for them to bring their favorite shows and characters into that experience and then share it with their friends."

Over the past several years, the Disney/ABC Television Group has consistently unveiled innovative, award-winning multiplatform services and apps. "WATCH Disney Channel," "WATCH Disney Junior" and "WATCH Disney XD" apps make full length episodes of popular shows available online and on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Verified pay TV customers can access live feeds of the networks, as well as access to first looks and sneak peeks. In addition to the WATCH services, other notable DATG apps include the Disney Junior Appisode app, which offers true interactive viewing, allowing kids ages 2-7 to touch, tap, swipe, tilt, shake and talk their way through various fun-filled activities embedded into episodes of some of their favorite Disney Junior shows; the ABC Player and ABC Family Player apps, which make full ad supported episodes available for viewing; the ABC News app; and the Emmy Award-winning official Oscars app, which provided unique backstage viewing experiences for the 83rd, 84th, and 85th Academy Awards.

The Disney Channel Photo Finish app is available for free from the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/DisneyChannelPhotoFinish.
