I can’t get angry bird friend on my I pad

By Diana

My screen is freezing when tapping for video to get extra bird for a close challenge. Happened several times. If I leave app & come back sometimes I can access , sometimes it takes the challenge & starts over. Very frustrating!

@diana, i occasionally have the same problem. It is irritating but at least you don’t lose your arena progress — just the ticket that you used to play. I also occasionally experience an inability to gain the extra bird at the end of a close game. In those cases I do lose my arena progress.

By Viola Cain

My game stops suddenly. Screen goes dark and exits game. I lose arena points and progress. Rovio is not responding to complaint. I will not be playing this game again.

Arena battle angry birds 2
It freezes when you have finished using your birds on the second treasure chest award. The screen pops up where you can watch a commercial for an additional bird or buy 3 birds for 60 jewels. Screen freezes and you can’t choose anything. Then you get out of it and it auto ends your game. I use extra spells which I pay for and I purchase extra birds. I have missed out on the second treasure chest three times today and some yesterday. I spend a fortune on angry birds and I feel def cheated. Please respond

By Draymer321

I have the same issue which is why I give a poor rating to rovio. They don’t care. Just take money

Why does my Angry Birds Rio game shut off and I go back to my home screen after playing for just a little while….

By April M Shumake

Angry Birds 2 would not load. It said assets were not attained. Had to uninstall and load again. Look lost all my progress and it was a lot.

[Angry Birds HD] Newest Bad Piggies level 34-11 isn’t registering Stella. She’s neither jumping onto the slingshot, nor being counted as 10k points when stage is completed prior to her turn. Just a heads up. I’ve gotten three stars for each of the new levels, except that one…which isn’t to say I’m not just sucking at that level, mind you! LOL! But I would think that based on my score and the number of birds left-over that I would have at least achieved two stars. Regardless, thank you for such a great game! You guys rock!

Same here, but I somehow got lucky and got 3 stars with 235950. Could not manage to get 3 stars again after that.

By Sean

P.S., Forgive me for leaving this out, but the platform that I noticed the issue on, regarding Bad Piggies level 34-11/Stella, was ios – iPad 2 mini. Thanks!

On Piggy Farm 34-13, occasionally everything disappears at once, but the good part is that you get credited for it!

By Anthony Rankine

I can’t get angry birds friend to download a spin again or free power potion etc because the movies won’t download.

By Moonlitdance

I am having the same issue after being forced to upgrade.

By Jared

Mine loads and stops loading it loads for 2-3 seconds and stops loading. ????

By Moonlitdance

I found I had turned off the add option in Google. So I turned it on for adds and now I get my spins and power ups to work.

Not receiving Black Pearls earned on King pig Challenge and Daily Challenge.

When you play either of these challenges there are a group of prizes you get if you complete. The last of the prizes being Black Pearls 30 for the daily challenge or 100 for the King Pig challenge. The problem is that one of the prizes is a treasure chest that you open and can receive a random prize such as hat, feathers, gems, or Black Pearls. If you receive Black Pearls in the chest , the last set of Black Pearls that you should collect for your final prize will not add to your Pearl count! I have lost out on hundreds of Black Pearls and BTW the King pig challenge sometimes is ridiculously difficult to beat. PLEASE FIX!

By jwgardenwiz (@jwgardenwiz)

@sam I suspected that I wasn’t receiving all of the black pearls to which I was entitled too but I never took note of how many I already had before the prizes were awarded. Today I noted my starting number and can confirm that I was awarded the pearls on the card that I selected in the challenge treasure chest but that the 30 pearls in the last prize did not add to my total. Another Nester already noted that the same problem exists with prize awards of feathers. If you beat the challenge and select a treasure chest card bearing feathers of the same color as the bird of the day, your feather count will not increase. You will get the 400 feathers (1000 inthe King Pig Challenge) from the first prize in the list but not the ones from the treasure chest if those colors match.

Seems like a straightforward software fix if the programmer were made aware of the problem.

I not only have lost pearl rewards but daily rewards haven’t been rewarded multiple times and friends list completely gone so I can’t give/get gifts since the last ‘upgrade’

On Angry Birds 2 through the android app: When I watch a video for a free item about 90% of the time I don’t get rewarded with the free item. It happens for all the free items (birds, lives, etc)

By Birdix

hello Angry Birds Friends cut every 3 mn exactly. since 3 weeks (with my Ipad) ?
Any raison ?

By Birdix

I was playing since nearly 1 year without any problème

By Tarun V Dalwani

If I start Angry Birds 2 and I am not connected to internet, then I start playing the daily challenge and in the 1st or 2nd level (mostly checked in 2nd level) I get a gift and after that level is complete, I am told to connect to Facebook to send the gift. If I connect and send it, my progress in the daily challenge is not moved forward even though I have cleared that level. I have to play that level again. This is a bug.

By Ron white

Lots of times not always, in between scenes changing my seen want go to the sceen. I have to go to settings then WiFi get off one WiFi a! Another or most times get off one the go right back to my first wifi. Then hit try again. That usually fixes it. It is a big waist of time and agravating to have to do this many times when I play the game of angrybirds 2.

I’m on level 70 but I can’t use any of my potions for some reason

I’m in the level 400’s

By Steve G

I updated angry birds 2 HD yesterday. More levels of “Birthday Party” appeared under “episodes”. But the episode “Birthday” is missing entirely. I’d sure like to have it restored to the games I’ve played or am still playing. Thanks

I just scored 100,000 on Rio Smugglers Plane level 29. Using IPad Air 2 v 10.3.2. I saw the score on the screen went to look at AngryBirdsNest and the score was the same as before I earned the 100,000.

By Constance Casey

Twice today in the King Pig Panic in Angry Birds 2 – right after selecting to go to the next level, screen locked up and was excited from the game. Once between level 1 and level 2 and once between level 2 and 3. Very frustrating! Especially when it’s a limited time to complete all 3.

Daily Gem letter gets stuck on purchase. Please correct this I have lost weeks worth the daily challenge task feathers due to this. I also purchased a daily package where i was to get 70 gems a day for 30 days and never got them. this is very frustrating and i love this game and don’t want to quit playing!

Angry birds seasons won’t let me claim 5 eggs (with crowns)on the 4 is more challenge

By Ed Fell

Unable to reach 600 on Angry Birds Seasons Challenges. I have 595, and have three-starred every challenge except “Four is More”. This is worth 5 points. The screen shows the “claim” button, but when I tap it, all I get is the flourish around the score, and it does not increment. It stays stuck at 595 with the “claim” button still showing.

Angry Birds 2 crashes everytime you have option to watch a video on arena for extra bird. On Samsung Galaxy Tab E.

By Vernice Greenaway

Angry Bird Blast level 70 to 75 have to many bugs. I am playing and right in the middle of the game it shuts off completely. Happens right through all the time. Why is that do?

By Anthony Roberts

Everytime I click to watch ad, free egg, treasure chest, etc. The app freezes momentarily and the app will close. This only happens since the newest update.

By nixip

Angry Birds 2 crashes every time you click on Watch a video to get an extra bird – personally tested on five mobiles phones.

Angry Birds 2: extra bird/extra life/extra reward option not working. Press it and it exits you from the game and takes you back to apps.

Ever since Mozilla updated, the background continues for flash different colors and scenes.

By Rachel

I can play angry birds but as soon as I try and open the mighty league, it does the “chopping wood” etc and then turns the whole app off.

Today (8AM CET) I paid for a egg of clan, I saw it 10 minutes then it disappeared, no more rewards and nothing in clan interface. But my 250 gems didn’t come back ! I play on Samsung A5 / Android Nougat.
