'Angry Birds' for Android breaks 3 million download mark Late last week we announced that Rovio Mobile, the developer behind the blockbuster game Angry Birds had recently released a version of the game for Android devices.
The company is still offering a full version of the game for free in the Android Market, following its massive success in the iOS App Store.

Within 24 hours, Rovio confirmed that there were over 1 million downloads of the game, marking the fastest an Android app had ever hit the milestone.

Today, both Google and Rovio have confirmed that the game has hit over 3 million downloads in just five days.

The app is available for free as it is being supported by Google's AdMob advertising platform. Google is using the game as a way to show advertisers that using AdMob can be very beneficial to them.

Across all platforms, Rovio has sold 7 million copies of the game for $.99.

This is not spam? :P

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Lets renegotiate them.
