Angry Birds Android ads make Rovio $1m per month

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.

Lightweight Angry Birds version planned for low-power devices

The developer of Angry Birds, Rovio Mobile, has announced that it will be producing a second version of the madly popular game intended for low-power Android devices. According to the company's blog, some Android device owners are experiencing performance issues, with their handsets unable to cope with the game's processing requirements.
"We are aware that a number of our fans have had trouble running the game on their devices. For example, some older and lower performance Android devices are experiencing severe performance issues. We are preparing a new solution for the next update ... This does not mean lighter gameplay or a lesser amount of levels, but a game experience optimized for devices with less processing power." Rovio Mobile
As a result, there's a long list of devices not officially supported, and Rovio says anything running under Android 1.6 or on custom firmware is also not supported. We're guessing when they mention the HTC G2 in this list, they mean the G2 Magic not the more recent handset.

Angry Birds Update Gets Mod to Optimize Gameplay and Hide Ads

Hooray! All of you playing Angry Birds on your Android Device more than likely know about the update that came earlier this month giving you 45 extra levels and a big fat extra bird to work with. If you do, you know that this addition not only ads more advertisements to your game (in a really inappropriate place in the top right corner,) but the app is, for many players, choppier and more lagged than the pre-update version. Yuck! But you need your birds, you can't live without your birds, and you need to smash you some pigs! So what did XDA forum member theimpaler747 do? He made a mod!
