[prMac.com] Orem, Utah - Juicy Development LLC today is pleased to announce the release of Hidden Mickeys, an iPhone application for use in Disneyland(R) park to help users spot Hidden Mickeys. Hidden Mickey are the sly Mickey Mouse(R) symbols that Disney(R) Imagineers hide throughout the park. "Mickeys can be hidden anywhere," said Brent Anderson, CTO of Juicy Development. "And Disney Imagineers and cast members are changing them all the time."
Users can play along in a scavenger hunt for images on rides, in lines, in restaurants, and even in the parking lot. Hints are given to the location of hidden Mickeys, and photos show what the hidden Mickeys look like. Those who don't want to keep score can look up all the known hidden Mickeys in the app's extensive database, and pinpoint their location with a custom Disneyland map.
Hidden Mickey is the only app that includes photos of each hidden Mickey in the park. To keep the app up-to-date, Juicy Development offers a worthwhile incentive to its users. "Find a Mickey we don't know about, provide a photo we don't have, or even take a photo better than the one we've got. If we use it, we'll give you a $10 iTunes card," said Anderson.
"We wanted to provide more than just a list of Mickeys," said Anderson. "So, we designed Hidden Mickey to capture the look and spirit of Disneyland." To accomplish this, Anderson hired an artist to design the app's icons and map of Disneyland. After the project was completed, Disney hired the Hidden Mickey's artist to work in their own animation department.
More than 170 hidden Mickeys can be found within Disneyland with the initial version of the application. Future updates will include California Adventures(R) and the surrounding Disneyland Resort(R) area. Users will receive free updates as those areas are added.
Hidden Mickey can be downloaded from the app store for $2.99 USD. More information can be found at juicydevelopment.com. Hidden Mickey is a product of Juicy Development, which also produces the popular mobile applications Police Scanner, Talk Radio, Famous Eats, and FastTrac.
