Android gets Angry Birds game for free (not a demo)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months, you’ve probably noticed that Angry Birds is one of the most popular games today on the iPhone and the iPad. You fling birds with a giant slingshot. What isn’t there to like? Well, now Android devices can get into the slinging action and, better still, they can do it for free.

That’s right. The poor iOS folks who had to pay for the feather-flinging action, but developer Rovio has decided to release the full version of the game for free on the Android platform. The kicker is that you won’t find it in the Android Market. Instead, you’ll need to direct your attention over to the GetJar store.

Rovio says that it picked GetJar for its “global reach and popularity as well as their unique App It! download service.” I can’t say for sure, but it’s possible that the GetJar people tossed a few clams in the direction of Rovio to help promote the Android Market alternative.

Oh, and before you get too excited about doing battle with some egg-stealing pigs, you will need to know one thing about the Android version of Angry Birds: it’s ad-supported. Get past the ads and you’ve got a free game.

  2. Great game. Tends to bog down with the free ads. The Saw 3D ads are REALLY annoying (full screen – locks the game until you hit the back button). That said, great game for free.

    Not a very good game, you quicly get to a point where you simply can’t solve a level, so you get frustrated and delete it. And it isn’t fair that Android got it free…
