Satisfy Your Inner Jack Sparrow With Verizon’s ‘Pirate Discovery App’

The summer movie season is upon us and one of the bigger titles of the year will be Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Hitting theaters on May 20th, we’ll get to see Jack Sparrow and the gang hunt down the Fountain of Youth while dealing with the dreaded pirate Blackbeard. However, fans of the Pirates series can download a free application for their Android phone today.

This Verizon-exclusive app comes in smart phone (v2.2 – 2.3.3) and tablet form (3.0) and gives users a ton of content related to the movie. Bone up on your characters with bios, artwork, and pictures as well as locate the nearest theater and show times. The app even lets you purchase tickets as well. The Pirate Discovery App also features a built-in rewards program that enables fans to unlock exclusive content and merchandise by pointing their device at a TV or computer screen.

On May 7th, users can watch the live stream of the movie’s world premiere and then from May 17 to June 14 they can get access to Disney’s mobile game for Android™ phones, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Master of the Seas”. This additional app will let users “create virtual pirates, customize ships, embark on quests and engage in simulated battles.”
