The popular web-based social version of Angry Birds is flying onto mobile

Rovio has just announced today via its official @AngryBirds Twitter account that the extremely popular "Angry Birds Friends" version of the franchise will be coming to both Android and iOS this Thursday. This falls in line nicely with some rumblings we heard in early April of the game coming to mobile, and on May 2nd it's finally happening. The "Friends" version of the game is currently a web-only Facebook title, where instead of going solo you can join up with friends (naturally) and hold tournaments to compete together.

We're a little sparse on information of pricing and how cross-platform it will be, but there's only a few days of waiting before we see it pop up in the Play Store.

Angry Birds Friends coming to Android this Thursday


Does anybody really give a flip about Angry Birds anymore? Is this news? The fad died a long time ago.

In other news... Hansen and the Jonas brothers are trying to sing again too. Really?

This news is about as relevant as the following Spice Girl song lyrics...

"Yo I'll tell you what I want, what I really, really want
So tell me what you want, what you really, really want
I wanna, (ha) I wanna, (ha) I wanna, (ha) I wanna, (ha)
I wanna really, really, really wanna zigazig ah"

Quit trying to act so hip. Yes it is news, even if you don't happen to care. If you haven't noticed the franchise has about a billion downloads across multiple platforms.

Meh, it's been a while since I bothered reinstalling the other ones. Angry Birds was good at first because it was the most popular well made game and there wasn't THAT much out there. But let's admit it, they've been pretty boring since then and better games have come out. I kindda feel Angry Birds is to game what IOS is to mobile OS.

I recently re-installed the original AB (purchased, not the freebee) on one of my tablets now that my son is old enough to grasp the game. Man I am appalled at all the forced marketing that pops up everywhere now. There's ads for Rovio games between every level and everytime you press pause.

Way to whore it out Rovio.
