Angry Birds was downloaded 8 million times this past Christmas

Exactly one year ago today, we informed you that Angry Birds was downloaded 6.5 million times on Christmas Day. With all of those new devices found under the tree this year, the number of Angry Birds downloads this past Christmas rose to 8 million. This is a total that includes all Angry Birds games available, including the latest one, Angry Birds Star Wars which has remained number 1 on the U.S. iTunes chart since its release. Rovio did not breakdown the stats for each specific version of  the game.

You have to hand it to Rovio. With 8 million downloads on Christmas Day and 17.4 million new iOS and Android activations on that day, we can assume that 46% of newly received iOS and Android devices had the game loaded up on December 25th. That is only an assumption, obviously, but still shows you how much a part of the mobile ecosystem the game has become. With 30 million downloads of the game taking place during Christmas week, Angry Birds has become one of the first apps downloaded by those receiving a new iOS or Android device.

It does get kind of old, and there are many better games out there, but it is a useful (as useful as a mind-less time killer can be) game to kill time in waiting rooms and in situations when a person is waiting for an unknown (but estimated to be short) amount of time. I definitely prefer games like modern combat, GTA, N.O.V.A., need for speed, ... when I can, but nurses, airport gate attendants, and priests hearing confession don't like people asking for a minute to murder this prostitute before you talk to them
