Angry Birds possibly teams up with KISS frontman Gene Simmons

What sounds better than Angry Birds launching through the air to blow up evil green pigs? Launching Angry Birds with painted KISS faces!

Rovio, creator of Angry Birds say piracy can be a good thing

Piracy is a touchy subject and has been looked down upon by many many different markets, Android included. Obviously we all know how the music industry feels on the matter, and we've seen the countless attacks and results from their approach. When it comes to Android or apps in general some might feel different. The creators of Angry Birds, Rovio had a thing or two to say regarding the matter -- and don't really think it's of much concern.

Nvidia hints at Angry Birds sequel with richer graphics

Angry Birds has become the breakout star of the mobile gaming world, thanks mostly to its simple premise and addictive gameplay (though some rather shameless marketing hasn't hurt). But next to the likes of Shadowgun, it can't help but look a little... flat. In a recent press event Nvidia's mobile content vice president Neil Trevett spent some time speculating on Rovio's cash cow, and how the developer might be leveraging more recent mobile gaming technology for better graphics and physics.

Tetris owner calls Angry Birds a fad, keeps a straight face

Quick: name the number one game on Android right now. Did you guess Asteroids? Pac-Man? Perhaps Pong? Nope, it's Angry Birds, as even a casual gamer and any holiday shopper could tell you, now that its branded merchandise adorns the shelves of nearly every retailer in the US. Speaking to Industry Gamers, Henk Rogers took offense to this fact, calling out Rovio's aviary opus. "Angry Birds is cute and everybody plays it for a while but they get burned out and move on and they will play another game." Rogers aught to know: he's the manager for The Tetris Company, which he owns in partnership with the game's original creator Alexey Pajitnov.

Facebook tops Nielsen’s list of most popular Android apps

I know, I know, stop the presses: Facebook is the most popular app on Android. The statistical wizards at Nielsen reached this conclusion based on active usage, not total downloads, noting that the recently-updated Facebook app has the most penetration across all of Android's user groups after the Android Market itself. The fact is at least a little surprising, since Facebook beat out Google's entrenched apps like Search, Gmail and Google Maps, which all had slightly lower user groups in every category.

Angry Birds send Seasons greetings via the Samsung Galaxy Note

Without a doubt, Rovio's Angry Birds is the darling of the mobile gaming world. It's sold millions of downloads, made at least as much in advertising revenue, and is now a household name amongst people who couldn't pick Mario and Sonic out of a lineup. The most prudent thing that Rovio has done is release Angry Birds Seasons, periodic themes updates with brand-new levels and elements to keep the simple physics game fresh. Now they've teamed up with Samsung for a little cross-promotion of everyone's crossover device, the Samsung Galaxy Note.
