Angry Bird Hits 30 Million Download Mark on Android (Updated)

Rovio’s Peter Vesterbacka is hanging out at GDC (Game Developers Conference) this week and casually tossed out a number related to downloads of Angry Birds on the Android platform.  30 million.  Yep, this silly little slingshotting bird game has been gobbled up more than 30 million times by Android folks alone.  He also mentioned that 80 percent of those 30 million have downloaded updates to the game which means that people aren’t getting sick of it and theories that this would be another fad are looking pretty ridiculous right now.  With their Seasons spinoff, and a whole bunch of levels slated to be released this month, we won’t be surprised if they come back talkin’ 50 millie before long.

Update:  Conan featured the “world’s largest” live-action Angry Birds last night and it seemed fitting to include it in this post…(Cheers Chris!)

Cheers to everyone who sent this in!

    I’m waiting for Galaxy On Fire, Starfront, Space Miner: Space Ore Bust and a couple of others to hit Android. To me, that is the only drawback of Droid versus Apple, they still have the better games on Apple. But I know it has to be hard from a developers stand point, since not all Android’s have the same power under the hood. But I’ll still just hope they start to offer these games on the Market one day, because some of them are really amazing! But even without games I’d still always be addicted to my DROIDX. :)

    30 million downloads? not impressed. Let me know when it hits 30 billion downloads then I’ll be impressed.

    Kellex I am sure you have seen it on youtube but some guy make a playable angry birds cake for his kids birthday, he even has different types of birds and the sling shot… amazing.

  • Chris Nimon

    I’d like to see the percentage of downloads when you combine Android and ios to the total number of their active phones. 30 million Android downloads is like 10% of the US’s total population.

    While this coco vid was okay, this link was a much better interpretation of “live-action Angry Birds”.

    I enjoyed Angry Birds in the beginning, but now I find the ads just ruin the experience for me. I really wish they would release a paid version. Don’t understand why they won’t, it can’t be that hard to produce.

      if you’re rooted, try using an ad blocker. Some people are against this as it takes away from the devs, but if they won’t offer a paid version, I don’t see the harm in using it.

    now if someone could make a android version of worms that would be another huge game.

    • Anonymous

      EA did release an official Worms app a month or two ago. Sadly, it’s a little lackluster, but hey, it’s something.

    i don’t have it. probably because it takes 20 minutes to load on the eris

    Updates don’t necessarily mean it is currently being used. If you aren’t on an older phone, you don’t have to worry too much about space. I have it on my DROID and Vibrant, update it the day updates come out, and haven’t played in about a month.

    Still good on them for their success, it is an OK game and lots of people seem addicted. I personally can’t play for more than 5 mins at a time, but that’s just me.

      Please link the article to back up this claim.

    • tjhrulz

      In the one at gameinformer it said that android has outsold ios version significantly

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kane-Stapler/597191406 Kane Stapler

      But iOS is ad free, so they made 84 million (eventhough thats false) but with android they make 6 million every month. So averaging it out they make much more on android.

    • DBK

      You misspelled your name. It’s “meth” (also known as Steve Jobs’ Wonder Jizz, aka The Crapple Koolaid), and you seem to be on plenty of it.

      You can go away now.

  • Formerdroidlifeuser

    Totally agree its bs they are forcing the full site on us just for money f droid-life im done with this site

    • UGA414

      and yet you’ll be back to whine…

    • Vire

      Yeah, I mean, a website that uses as much bandwidth as Droid-Life isn’t expensive and shouldn’t be allowed to generate some kind of revenue to support itself. That just doesn’t make sense, right?

      Why should the website generate revenue to support itself when we can have it bleed the wallets of the guy who run it. For the community. For free.

      For those who didn’t pick up on the sarcasm, this stuff costs money to run. The fact that they can turn revenue at all is impressive, especially on something geared at a free community. And frankly, hosting costs likely negate any form of earnings they make from adverts. So shut it and enjoy your free and timely information. You want this place to keep kicking, they need people to hit their ads. Simple as that.

  • Droidlifeisdead

    Really who cares…get a life kellex and stop forcing ppl to use full site instead of mobile just for add revenue u jackass

      You first. MAN, why does the world have full of idiots? If we cut the world in half..put all the idiots on one side, and put all the non-idiots on the other side, I think the world(the non-idiot side) would be a better place for all.

      lol

      • LeeInMKE

        Not sure we’d be able to fit all the idiots on one-half the Earth, but… the half with the non-idiots, we’d have a lot of room to roam around. :)

      you can back your game save up. I did this with my D2 and now have all my work on my Xoom.
      Angry cheaters is a free app that bucks up game save data to the sd card.

      • http://twitter.com/jcmessenjah Justin Curry

        not as worried about going back through the game, though I thought by saving the game to my SD Card that my progress would be backed up … I just wish I could get it to work! … am I the only one having this problem?

        • 06flht

          No dude I cant get it to load on my Droid X either..tried the unmounting thing … ya that didnt work

      Not sure about losing progress, but try unmounting sd card, install angry birds, then remount sd card. (Should work)
