Disney releases iPad movies app

Company's ABC Player one of device's more popular apps

Disney said Thursday it has released a movies app exclusively for the iPad.

Using the app -- conveniently dubbed Disney Movies -- users purchase movie downloads from iTunes, DVDs from Amazon.com and other online retailers, view trailers and buy theater tickets through Fandango.

All of that was already possible on an Internet-connected iPad, but the app puts it all in one convenient place, a spokeman said Thursday.

Disney already had one of the iPad's more popular apps with its ABC Player, which has been downloaded 850,000 times since Apple introduced its device three months ago.
