Angry Birds for Android hits unprecedented milestone

Angry Birds for Android hits unprecedented milestone
Angry Birds, that insanely addictive and popular game hit the Android Market on Friday. The application hit a milestone quickly, as it was downloaded over 1 million times…in one day.

Other applications can boast that they have been downloaded over a million times, but none can even compare to the one-day accomplishment. The game has been a hit on several platforms in numerous countries around the globe.

When the lite version of the game was released on Android, many users were disappointed. That disappointment led to the frenzy that was Friday, as servers crashed trying to meet the heavy demands.

So for those of you who have played Angry Birds; are you addicted? Tell us what you think in the comments below.

That's what happens when android gets a good game. And angry bird is just a taste of what DSiWare and the apple app store have to offer.

Yeah that happens when a company tries and thinks hard enough to choose another wining team, I will sure be a matter of time before the app store from apple becomes the least reason for users to buy an iphone .

...and just think about all the impatient people like myself who downloaded it from a link off of their website early Friday morning when it wasn't on the market place just yet; wonder how many hits they got there.

This game is a gold mine. I can imagine they have made millions just from this one game.

I got the full version for free from the Android App market as well... Are you telling me that there is a non ad-supported version? Although the potential is there to make more money from a persistent ad system than a one-time purchase. Hence the reason most Android apps are "free". But hell I'll buy that for a dollar!

Lol! I totally get your reference!!! "I'll buy that for a dollar!" That takes me back.

Even though it's free, it's still ad supported so they're going to make a good amount from that.

I know this is off topic but have people been seeing the ad for Verizon with global capabilities? It says global in 221 countries but the Internet says there are about 197 countries in the world. Which statement is a mistake?

14. some1 unregistered

Neither is a mistake. There is voice in more countries than data.

Lots of fun. Although it is grahically nice looking, it doesn't push the realms of 3D. Hopefully this will spur other developers to bring even more great games of all genres to Android.

Is this only for Android 2.2? I cannot find any version of the game in the market. All I find is tips, tricks, and other things like that.
