    Rovio's Peter Vesterbacka, while speaking at Game Developers Conference recently, indicated that Angry Birds has now been downloaded over 30 Million times! That's a ton of 'ruffled feathers' and 'squished pigs'. He also indicated that about 80% of Android users continue to play the game after they have downloaded it, which is a very high 'sustained interest' rate for a mobile gaming app. Man, now I wanna go play a few rounds... silly addictions. ;)

    im not sure how the download counter works but i dont think 30 million means 30 million people think about all the people who flash ROMs regularly and what not. but that is still a very impressive number.

    It is not 30 million people, i myself have downloaded each version of it at least 5 times and after finishing the game (for as many levels it had at that time) i read about all the info this app is transmitting about the user, the phone and other information and i uninstalled it for good.

    RE

    The game is highly repetitive and is boring now I really dont see what the big deal is about the game. Just my .02 cents.

    I love this game too.
    I had to reinstall it with my second Droid1 phone, but that's fine. I forgot how to get through some levels so it's challenging.

    I also like the holiday version.

    If my math serves me correctly, that would be over $30 million made. If my mind serves me correctly, that is a hell of a lot of money.

    Play a jam!

    Not necessarily, there are a lot of games/apps I don't download because they cost money.

    Okay well that was hypothetical given that the same amount of people downloaded the app even if it still cost a dollar.

    But, even if 1/4 of over 30 million people paid a dollar for the app, that's still a TON of money. I don't know about you, but I don't have that much lol.

    Yeah, well the ads idea apparently pays off in the long-term.
