Rovio finally slowly adding Angry Birds progress syncing

Rovio finally slowly adding Angry Birds progress syncing
Remember when Rovio promised to add cloud backup and syncing of your Angry Birds saves to its games? Yeah, it was over two years ago when Rovio said that feature was "getting there", but the feature is finally starting what looks to be a very slow rollout of save syncing. When we say slow, we mean it, so even though the feature is coming, don't expect to see Rovio Accounts on your device all that soon.

The idea is simple enough: you sign up for a Rovio Account using only your e-mail address, then your game saves will sync across your devices. There is even a nice feature that will let multiple users sync their saves using the same account, which is great for shared devices. The problem is that right now the Rovio games that offer the feature are very few. 

Rovio Accounts can only be found globally in The Croods, and in the original Angry Birds for users in Finland and Poland. Rovio has promised to roll out the feature to more areas in the future, but there's no way to tell when that could be happening.

Why exactly is this so hard to get done?

I dunno, but when Google does their own game thing, Cloud saves better be a big part of it. I dont have having to rely on these other companies to come up with their own separate solutions.

I don't understand how other, smaller devs (who surfaced way after Rovio) already have cloud backups, yet Rovio is still in the dust trail.

Will it work on all games by Rovio?

I expect this feature to hit windows phone versions in a few years
