Android gets the full apps for free. iOS pays, so its nice to get some exclusive levels from time to time.

Agree, Android users pay nothing for all four apps, while we have to pay… let’s see…$28? :)

Not sure how you figured 28.

I don’t mind paying if I get everything that other systems or the IOS gets. So I stand by the same statement as before. Charge me whatever but show us some love on Android. :D

At least give us the option rather than sorry, you are s.o.l cause you can get it free. ;)

$1 for each of the apps=$4
$1 for Mighty Eagle (3 apps only)=$3
$1 for Danger Zone=$1
$20 for Space Eagles=$20
Total: $28

And who knows how much for future Space Eagles and future apps… :)

Many of us Android users buy the app rather than using the free one though! :-)

haha, I was going to say the same thing but changed it to my statement above. Even if we pay, we don’t get the same levels. My mom has the nook color for my nephew and they just recently received the update for the Rio Trophy Room and final chapter. They are months behind and that is a paid app too. ;)

Well, for Android, it’s all about not being forced to play around, or even to see, for that matter, the lousy ads….

We have iOS have a benefit of paying

1. We have no ads Annoying us (Rovio News is not counted as ads)
2. We get updates first
3.we were first to get the 1st Angry Birds game

Avatar of kathi17Rank: Master Slinger with 6865 points
By kathi17 (@kathi17)

Yeah, buying the App is much better than the ads, even on Android! The paid Rio is first to get updated on Android because of a deal with Amazon, but unfortunately with the other versions, the free version is usually updated before the paid.

I would love to see all paid versions updated before free ones, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Rovio makes more money on ads than they do on the .99 paid versions. (I don’t know that for a fact, but the game must be serving up an awful lot of ads).

In my opinion, the biggest difference between Android and iOS is that iOS has the mighty eagle and the space eagle. If those were avaidable on Android I would definitely pay for the games.

I agree about the ME for paid users. Rovio gave T-Mobile users the ME a long time ago, but the problem is that they haven’t updated that version since Mine and Dine. It wouldn’t be quite so bad if we could purchase the regular version and play the new episodes, but if we install the regular version, it will erase our ME version. (Got that info twice from Rovio).

If they aren’t going to update our ME version, they should at least provide a patch so that our version has a different name than the regular version. That way we would be able to update like other users.

There’s no point buying the ad-free of Angry Birds Original, Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Rio and Angry Birds Space because you can only take on airplane mode or turn off the internet on your phone, then the ugly ads do not come!

I wish Rovio didn’t give new levels to the free edition. I understand giving new comer a change to play (free edition) and if they like it/purchase the full version but to give “free” brand new levels makes no sense. The true/hardcore fan (who pay) should get these new levels 1st. Just saying

24 levels in AB:Free. Over 300 in ABo. I see no issues.

Rank: Hardened with 665 points
By antpats (@antpats)

i agree, and ab free is obviously free, so whats the problem, if you already have the full ab and you get ab free, you have all the levels, including 24 extra and new exclusive levels free :) but i guess they should put them in the full game, because we had to pay for it so i cant argue on that part :)

Rank: DaBomb with 360 points
By stopshootinme (@stopshootinme)

The problem is I shouldn’t have to download ABOF just to play 3 completely new levels when I already purchase the paid app. It makes no sense to have a paid & free app of the same game on my ipod, it’s waste of space. I’ll stop complaining now.

Avatar of BurbmanRank: Gold Flinger with 8275 points

I think all of the 24 levels of AB Free are unique to that app, not just the three new ones. Free is free, so I do not understand all the complaints.

So they are paying some attention to one free version. Did they ever update the seasons or Rio free versions? Since there was no space free version I figured they had dropped that.

By danimario9

I doubt

I think Seasons Free and Rio Free are on the back burner. I haven’t heard much about a Space Free… perhaps after a few more episodes are released? Not sure.

Something funny:

Upon replaying ABO Free, I decided to revisit some older levels… Levels with yellow birds.

This is my first foray back to the older games after playing AB Space since the 22nd of March, and I can no longer use the yellow bird correctly because I am so used to the Lazer bird!

The first time I slung the yellow bird, I did so without much thought, then tapped where I wanted it to go. Clearly this did not work, it just accelerated over everything… As it should. I reset, threw the first non yellow bird perfectly and was about to get a much higher score. Then I shot the yellow, and again, I forgot to aim it and pointed where I wanted it to go. After I few times, I finally remembered to aim the yellow bird, but it took about 15 minutes to get the hang o it again.

Anyone else experience this? I used to be able to get yellow into the tiniest cracks and crevices, and while my aim is getting better, I’m still not as precise as I was before Lazer spoiled me.

Free apps are good.

For those that cannot afford a paid app at the present time, a free app may assist the individual in making the decision of whether to purchase the full version.

The free apps are also the “teaser” to spend the money to purchase the paid full version.
