  • Angry Birds Getting a Christmas Update


    Anger Birds developer Rovio has announced that a Christmas update to the popular game will be free to those who bought the Halloween edition ($.99). Rovio revealed this on Twitter today in response to a question they received about updates coming to the app. Their Twitter avatar was also updated with the iconic red bird wearing a Santa hat. Angry Birds has been the number one top paid app for some time now and the Halloween edition is currently at number 13. The Christmas edition is sure to be a hit as well. As this will be an update rather than a new version of the app, it should be available sooner, rather than later in the App Store.



    Angry Birds is currently $.99 in the App Store, but the Android version is free with AdMob supported advertising. Currently, there is no word on whether a free iAd supported version of the game will be made available in the future. If Rovio ever does release a free iOS version, not just a free trial, Angry Birds will be an even bigger success than it already is now.

    Angry Birds is also launching a full line of Plush toys this December. Soon, youíll be able to set up your own living room fort and play Angry Birds for real. Please, just donít use real pigs.

      Buy the Halloween version and then you get the Christmas version for free.

      As far as moderating posts that are disrespectful of the Writers. I am all for it. Things have gotten way out of control on here with people flaming the Staff. It didn't used to be this way.

      So in all seriousness is that all it takes? Expressing interest? I am sure there is talent out there that doesn't know where to get started.

      Yup, all you do is go to the bottom of any page, you'll see a "contact us" link, email Kyle. Easy as pie, you can make some money too if your any good.

      I normally don't read the comments, but seriously? So many people complained about one article? I personally think this fits (Sort of), since ModMyi does basically talk about Apple, it's products and many other products in general.

      On Topic: Cool, another update for Christmas! I wonder if you are still allowed to play the Halloween one when the Christmas update comes out.

      Wow read the title of the Thread, if you don't like the topic then find the correct thread to voice this in

      The Halloween edition 3rd to last LVL if I'm thinking right was a pain

      Happy to see a Christmas Special Edition

      hopefully they won't use this same edition next Christmas

      Angry Birds easily earned my 99 cents x2. I achieved three stars on every level in both versions. This game is the perfect time killer, and brings out my old gamer ocd fun factor from years ago. I've even helped a few friends get past levels they are stuck in. So yes, I'm looking forward to the "Holiday" addition.

      You see, when you load the main page of this website, you are provided with headlines. You can then choose to click on a headline if that subject interests you. We're so sorry you were coerced into clicking on an article about Angry Birds. They must have mislabeled the headline. That's 30 seconds of message board trolling that you'll never get back. Better step it up and live life like there's no tomorrow to make up for precious lost time.

      I don't think the issue falls on Angry Birds, or the content of this article itself. The issue is that at the time of this article being posted, it had been a couple of hours since a rather sizeable development in the jailbreaking community had occurred and not one mention had been made. While I do agree that MMI encompasses all things iOS, since the very beginning there's been a focus on the MODDING part of things. It's what a lot of people come here for.

      An official article/statment didn't come until 7 hours later, by Kyle himself in the middle of the night. At this point, the jailbreak/unlock was being discussed on just about all the threads people with no central spot to focus our discussion.

      I understand writers need time to write a thorough report on any particular said of news, but just ignoring the news and forcing the community to talk about it in other threads (causing derails) only hurts the cohesion this site has.

      Does it really hurt for a mod (of which plenty here were aware of the recent news) to make a quick BREAKING: STUFF HAPPENING THAT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO YOU post to put it out there while the writing crew continues on schedule and submits a second full article?

      Heck, as a mod, I used to do this all the time. I broke the "Jailbreaking is now legal" news from work over my phone like half an hour after it happened, then Messany took over with a more content-filled article a couple of hours later.

      As far as Angry Birds, there's nothing I can say that hasn't been said. My brother actually IM'ed me 4 days ago to let me know how much he HATES MY GUTS for suggesting he should play Angry Birds as he now does nothing but play the game.
