Rovio has released the popular Facebook game, Angry Birds Friends for the iPhone and iPad.
I had gotten pretty tired of the whole Angry Birds thing, at least until all the apps went on sale! I took that opportunity to get a few of the apps I didn’t have (Star Wars and Space, actually) and I found that Angry Birds Space is pretty freaking fun (and amazing) to play. The nuances of gravity add so much more “fun with physics” to the game. Today Angry Birds Space has an update with 30 new levels and a new physics challenge for you—water.
Nothing says Christmas morning like the sounds of cartoon birds being slingshot towards green pigs. Well, at least it did for the over 8 million people who downloaded Angry Birds on Christmas Day alone. While my son contributed to that number over the holidays, what I want to know is what you found and downloaded on your devices.
The Angry Birds Franchise is one of the best selling iOS games of all time. With Regular, Seasons, Rio, Space, Star Wars, and even Bad Piggies apps (not to mention toys and all the rest), there doesn’t seem to be any stopping Rovio. Today, as it happens, is the 3rd birthday of Angry Birds and with birthdays come presents, this time for us!
Mid-Day News: iPhone 5 sales better than expected, iOS Dominates Mobile Web, and Apple Didn’t Know Much About Jury Foreman
In addition to news like iTunes might be reaching the Russian frontier tomorrow, Facebook maybe buying WhatsApp, The Daily shutting down, iOS 6.1 beta 3, and the iPhone 5 coming to 50 more countries this month , there has been other news of note thus far today. Things like iPhone 5 sales are better than expected, iOS still dominates the mobile web, and new Angry Birds Seasons levels!
Angry Birds certainly became a phenomenon didn’t it? I eventually beat all the levels on the Classic and Rio apps, but haven’t played Seasons in a while (much less bought Space or Star Wars). Ever look at your screen after a marathon Angry Birds session? Ever wonder what the pattern of pull back and fire would look like? Wonder no longer.
