New Angry Birds Rio Levels Teased, Carnival Episode on the Way

Rovio just got done announcing a new set of levels for the regular Angry Birds and only days later is teasing the next release for Rio.  Will this crazy slingshotting birds train ever slow down?  Oh, and you should try to ignore the fact that the teaser says this new Carnival episode is available “now”, and instead look toward the end of the month (or maybe this week?) for a release.   (more…)

Angry Birds Rio Updated in Android Market, Beach Volley Levels Included

Nothing says it’s Almost Summer like Angry Birds Rio being updated with the Volley Ball levels. Back on the 6th it was teased for us and then released to Amazon exclusively, but now you can grab it from the Android Market for free (ad-supported of course). No more exclusive.

What’s everyone’s current thoughts on having applications like this split between the two markets? In the end, does it really affect how we get our products? There shouldn’t be anything wrong with a little healthy competition as long as the developers don’t mind and they keep developing and updating apps.  Don’t we the users continue to win?   (more…)

New Angry Birds Rio Beach Volley Episode Gets Previewed

We had yet to find out what the theme of the new Angry Birds Rio update for next week would be, but thanks to a preview video uploaded to Rovio’s Youtube account today, we get a full 48 second look.  Beach Volley is the title, and as you can see is set on a sunny beach with loads of monkeys.  Should be another wild addition that I’m sure many of you will pound through in less than 20 minutes.   (more…)

Angry Birds Rio Update Lands Next Week

Another Angry Birds update is on the way, this time for the Rio edition.  Since it’s May now, the new set of levels will be made available just as the game hinted towards back at release.  No idea what the theme will focus on, but going off of the previous two playable levels, we’ll likely see some new animals to attack.  The announcement was made via Facebook:

Squawk! Hold on to your hats, people: the first update for Angry Birds Rio lands next week! Get ready for more marmoset-mauling action and more juicy secrets to discover. Did you already find all the Golden Pineapples and Bananas?

And we’re just guessing here, but since the game was originally launched through Amazon, we’ll assume it’ll hit that market first.  But, there is an ad-spammed version in the regular Android Market that will likely see it as well, so just keep an eye for both.

Angry Birds Seasons Easter Update Coming Soon, Rio and Regular in May

If you are just now finishing up the St. Patty’s Angry Birds Seasons update, you might not want to put your device down as an Easter edition is right around the corner according to game maker Rovio.  With Easter falling on the 24th of this month, we could probably target the week of the 20th for a release, couldn’t we?

Oh and if you were wondering about Angry Birds Rio or the regular edition, they’ll be seeing updates some time in May.  So yeah, no slowage of flying birds any time soon.

Angry Birds Rio Lands on Android Market

We’re hoping to make this the last Angry Birds post of any kind for a while, although that probably won’t happen because Rovio seems to keep pumping out new titles and variations by the second which many of you still can’t seem to get enough of.  So yeah, Angry Birds Rio (with ads) is available now on the Android Market for FREE, but again, the ad-free version from Amazon is still available without cost.  Choices, choices.

Angry Birds Rio Headed to Android Market with Ads this Week

Still trying your hardest to hold out from purchasing or downloading anything from the new Amazon Appstore including Angry Birds Rio?  Your hold out is about to pay off, well for AB Rio at least.  Rovio announced today via Facebook that the latest addition to their Angry Birds lineup will be available (with ads) for free on the Android Market later this week…

Angry Birds Rio Free will launch later this week in Android Market, as soon as we fix a couple of issues. Squawk! The ad-free version is available exclusively in the Amazon Appstore, where you can download it for free for a limited time. Massive thanks to all Angry Birds fans who already downloaded the game! How are you enjoying it so far?

Not sure I understand why anyone would deny the ad-free version which is free from Amazon right now, but some people love to make points.  So keep an eye out for AB Rio in a market near you!

Angry Birds Rio Unplayable if Amazon AppStore is Uninstalled

If you installed the new Amazon AppStore this morning to grab Angry Birds Rio, you might not want to uninstall it any time soon.  If you do, and then try to play AB Rio, you’ll see the following message on your screen.

It looks like the Amazon Appstore was uninstalled from your device.  Please install the Amazon Appstore and sign in with your username and password to use this app.

Smart move by Amazon, but frustrating to those of you out there that don’t want an extra appstore app taking up space on your phone’s internal memory and in your app drawer.  Kids got to make money somehow, right?  Hopefully this isn’t a trend with all of their apps.

Cheers @davekover and everyone else!
