Disney Taps Into Tapulous

July 1, 2010

Interesting news is developing in the App Store world right now as Disney has apparently just acquired iOS game developer Tapulous.

Does the Tapulous name sound familiar? Tapulous is the company behind the famous game franchise Tap Tap Revenge. In the last two years Tap Tap Revenge has done quite well in the App Store with a couple of million downloads. Lately, they've been diversifying through an array of deals with music labels enabling them to feature specific artists in separate apps.

As you probably know by now, Steve Jobs is Disney's largest single shareholder. With this turn of events he ends up having oversight over an eminent third-party iOS developer. It's going to be very interesting to see what Disney does with Tapulous. Will they further develop Tap Tap Revenge, improve their own offerings in the App Store or both?

What do you think?
