Well, Merry Christmas to the Angry Birds. Developer Rovio has announced its hit series Angry Birds was downloaded about 30 million times in the Christmas week (Dec 22 –Dec 29).
According to CVG, this total figure is measured on iOS and Android devices – both tablets and smartphones.
And on Christmas Day alone, the Angry Birds series was downloaded 8 million times.
Angry Birds Star Wars is probably Rovio's most lucrative version of the annoyed avian characters yet.
According to Rovio, this means one Angry Birds download for every other new device which was activated on Christmas day – allegedly around 17.4 million.
And that’s not all...Angry Birds Star Wars had been at Number 1 on the US iPhone chart since it released in November.
