Freemium – The next step for the Android Market

Freemium has been a business model I’ve mentioned in numerous articles since this site started. Everything from online MMORPGs to iOS games use it and it can be incredibly successful, especially if you have a very popular game.

Angry Birds – 2m downloads since launch

In the crazy world of statistics here is a number that developers of popular iOS games should look at, 2 million. Well actually it is over 2 million. That is the amount of downloads Angry Birds full has gotten since it was released onto the Android Market a few days ago.

Rovio’s website goes down thanks to Angry Birds

Seems as though GetJar isn’t the only one to be effected by the launch of Angry Birds full for Android. Rovio’s main website is also now down for the count due to the ridiculous amount of traffic.

Little Metal Ball – Welcome to game induced violence

It is a rare day when I find a game that manages to frustrate me, make me want to toss my phone and possibly punt somethng out of anger. However those rare days do happen and this is just with the Lite version of the game Little Metal Ball since the full version is not available yet.

Angry Birds full version preview and more info

Rovio was nice enough to send us a early copy of Angry Birds and let me say this right off the start, it has a LOT of content. 150 levels worth of content to be exact not including the Golden Eggs you need to achieve. The UI has been changed a bit as well with expanding/contracting menus on the start page, sliding level selection screens. It is slick.
