Find and log all of the Disneyland pressed pennies using your iPhone or Android phone—no paper needed!
Collecting pressed pennies (also called elongated coins) is a fun and inexpensive way to create mementos from your trip to Disneyland in California. There are even a few machines that will press nickels, dimes, and quarters. Many web sites offer paper checklists you can bring with you, but by following the directions below, you can install an interactive Disneyland pressed coin app on your iPhone, or install it as a web-based smart phone app for Android or Blackberry.
This app will allow you to mark ahead-of-time which coins you want to get while you're at Disneyland, and then let you log each coin as you find and make it. You can even use the mapping feature to see where you are compared to the location of the coin press machine!
Coins in the app are sorted by park as well as the location in the park. You can also look at a list of elongated coins you've already found as well as coins you are still hunting for. Just a touch of the screen allows you to mark coins as found.
Android Users! — You can use this application! Just select your "Browser" icon, go to the URL in Step 1 (http://www.hyliston.net/iphone/disneyland-pressed-coins), and then select "New Bookmark". In the future, you can use this bookmark to go to the Disneyland Pressed Coins app, and it will remember your selections. You can ignore the rest of the steps that are specific for the iPhone app.
Here are the steps to install this web-based application on your iPhone:
Use the Safari web browser on the iPhone and then navigate to http://www.hyliston.net/iphone/disneyland-pressed-coins.
You can try out the app here, but once you install it on your home screen, you will have more screen space to see more of the pressed coins at one time. Remember that any coins you mark on one computer/phone/tablet cannot be transferred to another one. Be sure to mark the coins on the device you'll have with you in Disneyland.
At the bottom center of the screen, click on the bookmark icon ( ), or in some versions of Safari, this button looks like a plus sign ( ). Either way, touch this button.
A new menu will appear. Your list of choices may be slightly different than the list to the left.
Tap the "Add to Home Screen" button.
This is the last step! On the last screen, you will get a chance to name your new application.
The default name is "Disneyland", which fits nicely on the home screen. Feel free to change it to another name if you'd like.
Once you have a name you like, touch the "Add" button in the top right corner.
The Safari window will disappear, and your home screen will appear. Now, to use the Disneyland Pressed Coins application, just touch the pressed penny icon. You'll never need to go back into Safari again to use the application and track your Disney pressed coins.
