Angry Birds Friends Now Available As Mobile App!

AB Friends Loading Screen iOS

Finally, after months of anticipation, Angry Birds Friends is now available on mobile devices. This far, we have seen the app land for iOS as a FREE universal app for iPhone and iPad, and for Android via Google Play.

Disclaimer: No, we do not know if your specific device is now or will ever be supported in the future. These types of questions should be directed to Rovio Support.

Can’t find it? Go to the AppStore and select any Angry Birds app. Go to the developer page and, under iPhone apps, it should be listed as the last one. Also, be sure to grab the v1.0.1 bug-fix update, which may help users with login issues.

Let’s get down to the details here. What’s included?

  • Foremost, let’s stress again that this is a FREE app, a universal app on iOS, optimized for iPhone 5, and all that awesome stuff. Note that free means ad-supported, though ads will be removed if you purchase any pack of Bird Coins (see more below).
  • The app requires a Facebook account. On iOS 6.x, the login is truly seamless if you have your Facebook login information set in your iOS Settings. On other devices, I would imagine you are prompted to login via a dialogue box.
  • Before you can login to your Facebook account, you have to complete the tutorial. It’s not hard at all, we promise. You MUST use whatever Power Ups the game prompts you to use, but since you aren’t logged in, they are free PUs.
  • After you finish the 5-step tutorial process, you can login to Facebook to earn a bonus of 200 Bird Coins, which can be used toward the purchase of Power Ups. All of your to-date Tournament progress will be there, and I mean all of it — including past results, available Power Ups, and all of your Facebook competitors.
  • All the typical Power Up rules exist. On a given try, you may use at most two distinct PUs from Sling Scope (adds a trajectory line), Super Seeds (supersize your fowl), King Sling (super strong and fast slingshot), and Birdquake (shake shake shake). Wingman is another Power Up, treated independently of the original four, and exclusive to the Angry Birds Friends Tournament.
  • At this time, the only levels available for play are the Tournament levels. It is possible that, in the future, the app will be expanded to include the other levels available on Facebook. For now, it is a means of playing the weekly Tournament away from your PC.
  • Feel free to enter any legitimate scores (including scores obtained using legitimate use of Power Ups) on our brand new Angry Birds Friends Tournament Leaderboard. You will be competing against the best of the best, so be prepared for some tough competition.

    Anyone looking for a nice challenge should try for 3 stars on Power Up Practice level 2 without using power ups. I couldn’t really zero-in on the threshold, since I was stuck on 91K (2 stars) for about 5 days, and finally beat it with 96K (3 stars). Not really a whole lot to it … it just has to be done with 2 birds and destroying as much material as possible. I worked from left to right, exploding one tnt with each bird and hoping for as much collateral damage as possible.

    Too little to really say much. Could be an update to Bad Piggies. I see a spring-loaded boxing glove, could be a new contraption item.

    There’s a new background in the image & new spring-loaded boxing glove. It could be an update :)

    They added the Green Bird to the tournament screen! I guess they have respect for the Green Bird after all.

    I finished the first week tournament when ABFriends was released…I forgot to enter those scores onto the Leaderboard
    Is there any way I could retrieve or view those scores achieved in the past weeks?

    Oh……
    what if I create a new Facebook account, will ABFriends start with the first week tournament?
    or it will just start with the current week?

    Will always use the current week.

    Today I played the first two levels of the Halloween tournament. I went back a while later to better my score and my name did not appear…..only “guest”. Any suggestions?

    You would have to sign in again. Bottom-left corner, I believe.
