Angry Birds Friends Going Mobile with iOS and Android App Available May 2nd

Angry Birds Friends Coming to iOS and Android on May 2nd
Angry Birds Friends is coming to Android and iOS on May 2nd, 2013 (that’s this Thursday). You heard right! Angry Birds Friends is becoming a native mobile app! Ironically, this very idea was discussed in our forums when Angry Birds Friends first launched. It’s great to see them bringing the fun of weekly tournaments to additional platforms.

As with the web based version you will be able to:

  • Compete in weekly tournaments against your Facebook friends across platforms. You’ll be competing for the coveted trophies (bronze, silver and gold)
  • Brag to your friends about your amazing score!
  • Purchase and send Power-ups to friends.
  • There will likely be daily rewards, which could include free Power-Ups

No word on exactly when we can expect Angry Birds Friends to land on mobile, but if you’re curious and haven’t played it previously you can check it out Angry Birds Friends on Facebook to get an idea of what it’s like.

The questions that remain:

  • Will the web based and mobile versions be the same, so that players can compete across all platforms? That would be awesome…and ideal.
  • Will Pigini Beach be included?
  • If I had to guess, I’d say probably not.

  • How will new levels be pushed to the game? I imagine it will be similar to how the daily levels have worked in Seasons.

Having a Facebook account is required to compete with friends.

do you think we can still play without a FB account?

Yes, but maybe people that do not have facebook can play the other levels like pigini beach without competing with friends.

This is great, especially for iOS users, since Flash is unsupported in any iDevice.

I have to agree with @truckdriver since I play on an iPad. It will be fun to be able to actually play over the iOS device now. I do not have access to a computer all the time on the road.

Personally, I’m looking forward to this. Indeed, I can feel the build up of anticipation that is best described as being like a kid at Christmastime.

Thursday is going to be a good day!

Well I’ll keep saying this as it’ll be proven true almost every time: when this lands on the iOS and Android stores, they’ll eventually have to release the free version of it later on, or they might bypass that and just make this one free altogether.

Sorry for asking such silly question but what can I do if NONE of my FB friends play Angry Birds Friends? I really don’t have many FB friends, I add only those whom I know from my real life and as far as I know they don’t play games on FB. Can I still play for my own fun without anybody else know what I am doing?

Rank: Out of this World with 2550 points
By Aman (@amandeep)

@cosmo2503 Yes, you can still play AB Friends if your friends don’t play on Facebook.You can play weekly tournaments without any FB Friends, get coins and much more :-D

FB Friends provides you with two built in competitors! if you have none.

Rank: Out of this World with 2550 points
By Aman (@amandeep)

Yip, Built-in competitors are Yellow bird and Red bird. Yellow bird’s score is always highest in weekly tournaments.

By Golldd

No, Yellow bird always has the 1-star score while the red bird has 2-star score

Rank: Out of this World with 2550 points
By Aman (@amandeep)

No, I mean yellow bird’s TOTAL SCORE of weekly tournament is higher than red bird. Please see the total score of weekly tournament instead of seeing the STARS.

By Golldd

Even when I am seeing the scores,YB has 550,740 points(3rd place) while RB has 574,220(2nd place).

That’s weird.

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Red Bird always had 2-star scores, and so he ranks higher than Yellow for the Tournament.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 18470 points
By cosmo2503 (@cosmo2503)

@amandeep are YB and RB virtual or their scores are the highet scores of real players without showing their identity since I am not on their friends list?

Rank: Out of this World with 2550 points
By Aman (@amandeep)

@cosmo2503 Yellow Bird and Red Birds are as CPU competitors. There are six levels in every weekly tournaments. You have to complete each level and beat their scores. If your total six levels score higher than RB and YB, then you won the tournament and you will get 200 coins. But you have to check your score regularly until WT ends. They both are not real, if you have Facebook friends who don’t play AB Friends, then RB & YB scores will be highest.

@amandeep birdcoins are bought for real money and I just wonder how payment system will work as I am going to use it.

@cosmo2503 BirdCoins can also be earned by winning tournaments. That is the reason I did not pay for coins, cause I haven’t any credit card.

@amandeep thatnk you for info. I thought there are some kind of rewards for completing tourment, but such rewards are usually not enough.

I think that new Angry Birds tournament levels will begin downloading automatically when you open the app, just like in Where’s My Water’s Levels of the Week.

Oooo…. I just playing around with my Android on Facebook, and I went to the game. They said that it’s now available on Android Market. But when I clicked the “Click Here…”, it leads me to nowhere. So it’ll be released May 2nd. Nice treat, 3 days to go.
