Are you a huge WWE fan and can’t stand to spend a minute away from all the action? Look no further than the WWE App. Available for both iOS and Android platforms, this app puts you the fan in charge. With breaking news, highlights from Raw, Smackdown, WWE PPV’s and the soon to come WWE Network you’ll never miss a beat of the action.
One of the coolest things in my opinion about the WWE App itself is that when any of the WWE televised events go to commercial break, you can continue to watch the match going on live when you switch over to the app. No longer do you have to worry about missing when your TV screen fades to black. Best of all, the WWE App let’s you in on exclusive backstage content that you won’t be able to see anywhere else.
Another great thing about the WWE app is the superstar profiles. Each of your favorite WWE Superstars from present and past are located on the app and on each of their bio pages their entrance music as well as tons of photo and video content from some of their greatest matches. It’s truly unbelievable how expansive the WWE library is. You can even relive classic matches like Andre the Giant vs. Hulk Hogan, all at your fingertips.
Arguably one of the best things about the app is the fact that the WWE has now given power back to its fans the WWE Universe. Often times during shows such as Raw and Smackdown, fans will be given the change to vote on the matches they want to see, making the show very interactive. For me as a lifelong fan, there’s truly nothing better than getting to influence a match because you know it’s what you and millions of other wrestling fans out there want to see.
All in all, the WWE app is a must have for any wrestling fan whether you’re a lifelong fan or just getting into wrestling for the first time. Be sure to download the WWE App in the App Store of your iOS device or the apps section of Google Play on your Android device. Also be sure to check out the brand new WWE Network, WWE’s new 24/7 HD programming network available for purchase through the WWE App on 2/24/14 for $9.99 a month.
Recently, Disney released a new free app called Story for Apple iOS devices running 5.1 or later. According to the developer notes in the App Store, the Disney Story app is optimized for iPhone 5. Although I have an iPhone 4S, I had no evident issues although the app was not designed for my particular model of phone.
The basic premise behind the app is that the pictures and videos you take tell the stories of your life. You are able to view shared stories on a unique website that is created for each Disney Story created in the app. If you choose to share just keep in mind that those who can see your Facebook or are invited to the email will be able to see the story, so please don’t publish private information like addresses or phone numbers. The information provided by Disney from the App Store indicates that the unique Disney Story websites will not be able to be searched for or found without the unique web address. Any pictures or videos uploaded, but not shared are deleted from the app’s server after seven days.
I found the app to be very user friendly and intuitive for anyone familiar with an Apple device. The Disney Story app accesses your camera roll to organize pictures and videos by date and location. This makes it very easy to see stories of your life appear before you to share with others.
Once you have downloaded and installed the app, make sure you login to or create a Disney account. This is necessary in order to share your stories. When you have selected what kind of story you want to tell by date and location by choosing pictures to start from in My Moments, you can start creating your Story. The Story is limited to 20 pictures, but allows you some creative latitude in layout and editing the pictures to zoom in and out. It is very easy to add pictures from your camera roll, delete unwanted pictures, rearrange the order of pictures and even take new pictures and video straight from the app. After just a few minutes of playing with Disney Story, I created a story of my own. You can see it here.

I think this is a fantastic app that will allow people to very easily create and share stories with friends and families while on the go. You don’t have to wait to get back from vacation to share that story about the first time the kids met their favorite characters in the Magic Kingdom. You caught it all on video and in pictures and can email it off to grandma and grandpa while you are right there still in the park. It will be a great way of sharing the magical moments your family and friends experience on a small scale with those who aren’t there or even with all of your Facebook friends. I love the Disney Story app and look forward to using it more to share stories with friends and family that aren’t able to join me on my adventures. Creating these little vignettes is a quick and easy way to share your stories one moment at a time instead of in a large album of your entire vacation. I hope you all will take the time to download this new app and I look forward to seeing your stories!
