TechCrunch reports this afternoon that iPhone startup Tapulous has been acquired by Disney. With meager beginnings on the App Store between the photo sharing app Collage [Free], their Twitter client Twinkle [Free], and the original Tap Tap Revenge [$1.99], Tapulous later went on to releasing additional licensed Tap Tap games with music from bands ranging from Metallica to Coldplay, and even Justin Bieber.
It’s hard to say what this means for the future of Tapulous, as being owned by Disney presumably now gives them access to Disney’s amazing library of music owned by the Disney Music Group. This includes soundtracks to Disney movies, and other bands covering a wide spectrum of music from They Might Be Giants to Miley Cyrus and an amazing amount in between. We’ll have to wait and see if this means more individually licensed games, additional DLC for Tap Tap Revenge 3 [Free], or other potential games we can’t even imagine yet.
