Angry Birds Android tops 7 million download mark

Android downloads chase iPhone popularity

Angry Birds, the feathered friend flinging app phenomenon from Rovio Mobile has topped 7 million downloads on Android powered handsets alone, new figures have revealed.

With the full version of Angry Birds landing in the Android Market on October 15th following its massive success on iOS powered devices, the puzzle game’s immense popularity has seen it quickly become one of the Google OS’s most popular apps.

Some of Angry Birds’ rapid Android download figures can be attributed to the full game being made available free of charge on launch day by App provider GetJar. The App’s availability on GetJar proved so popular the free download site was repeatedly crashed before recording more than 1 million downloads in just three days.

Earlier this week it was revealed that the Christmas themed edition of Angry Birds would be made available on December 11th for free to all iPhone users who previous splashed out 59p on the Halloween styled app spin-off.
