Angry Birds Adds new Video Advertisements on Startup

We all love free apps, and although it's great not having to pay for an application, the advertisements can certainly hinder the user experience. If you have opened up Angry Birds lately then you might have noticed a full length video ad before startup. Android users were considered lucky to have their port of Angry Birds available for free, but after many annoying advertisements, that can break up gameplay, and now this, I'm sure many of us would be willing to drop the $.99 to just have an uninterrupted gameplay experience.

Angry Birds looks for new ways to make money

Angry Birds “Bad Piggy Bank” in-app payments announced

Angry Birds developer Rovio has announced a new in-app payment system that will debut on Android, charging upgrades - such as to remove the adverts in the free title, or to buy the upcoming "Mighty Eagle" update - directly to a user's cellphone bill rather than demanding credit card details. "Bad Piggy Bank" will also be made available to other Android app developers, according to Rovio’s Peter Vesterbacka, potentially filling a gap for in-app payments on the Android platform. The roll-out will begin with Finnish carrier Elisa, before a global roll-out in 2011; it requires carrier agreements so as to process the payments on a user's cellphone account. Meanwhile Vestabacka also revealed that Angry Birds has seen a total of 50m downloads to-date, a fifth of which have been on Android. [via TechCrunch]

Developers Rovio may be giving Angry Birds away for free, but that doesn't mean the team isn't making any money on the game. Speaking at LeWeb 2010 today, Rovio CEO Mikael Hed revealed that the adverts on the Android version of Angry Birds is pulling in $1m per month. That's actually more than the premium version of Angry Birds on sale in Apple's App Store, which is a paid-app rather than ad supported.
