Hi Four times I tried to used my power ups tonight and last night and when I pressed on them the game went blank and I lose them. Plays fine when I don’t use my power ups.

By Rod

PS – why can’t you select which character you want to power up. I bought and bought and bought in hopes to power up Red to get him to level 5, but the program will add to the others. Is this another way to entice users to spend and spend and spend!!

Crossing the Rubicon is one of those levels that glitches into slow motion, then everything blows up and wipes out your score. My really high score just went to zero. ?

version of Angry Birds seems to be designed for iPad Mini and does not work very well on iPod touch. The reason why I believe this version is customized for the iPad Mini is because every game image is now smaller and I can not zoom in (which I was able to do in all previous versions).
It seems to require more processing power than the iPod has – the action and sound are very jerky instead of smooth and continuous, as they were on previous versions. How can I get back to an older version on my iPod touch?

why is the the spin wheel not working …. it spins …. but it gives you nothing and you suppose to eliminate one each day and it’s not letting me eliminate

Explosions can now be fatal erors.

Friends tournament mania has a serious glitch. During explosions the screen goes blank and takes you completely out of the game. Have to sign back in to fb every time. Happens in every level. Super frustrating.

It seems like it happens just when you are going to beat the bhigh score too! Happening to me too.

By Linda

Sheila, That has been my flippn problem ever since this new tournament started. Power ups take me completely out of the game and it goes black then reboots. It does the same if I fling a bird after the last piggie has died!! I think its a scam just to make us buy more power ups!!!

By Jinja

AB 2 on iPad . . Kicks me out after completing a level, and I have to log back in. Will also the same thing after watching a video to get extra prizes or birds.

On Angry Birds Fight, my pig monsters keep disappearing! Then they reappear when the fight is over and it says I lose! This has happened with boulder pigs and scorpion pigs.

when trying to shoot either the bombs explode mid air or it will not let me aim. egg drops without cause or wingman does not fly…tired of loosing powerup and points because the game is not playing correctly.

By Nicholas Voutsinas

I keep getting a pop-up saying “Updating Your Progress-Please wait we just need to restart the game.” I click the checkmark, the screen reloads and it just keeps popping back up not letting me play the game. Do I have to start all over and lose all my progress?

Angry Birds Friends/Carnival Days, crashing.

By ichabod

Angry bird friends will not open on the IPad for the current game that started Wed. 27th Jan. Cannot play it at all.

Angry Birds Friends latest update will not play on my iPad. Just switches off when gone through opening up procedure.

By Linda Prell

Starting 1/27 it was closing out intermittently on my iPhone, but today I can’t get it to load at all, it starts, but closes :(

For the last few days Angry Birds will not play on my iPhone or iPad . Tried restarting but no luck! Any solutions?

By Linda Prell

The game has not been working properly on my iPhone since 1/27. The games would close out in the middle and today I haven’t been able to play at all. The game will start load and then close out in like 2 seconds. I’ve restarted my phone, check all settings, checked for updates, no help. My phone is where I play 99.9% of the time. Help!!

@fleshyskeleton You should contact Rovio immediately about this.

The version on my Mac, used via Bluestacks, has all these black bars and squares where the animations should be.

Get back to me and I can send screenshots.

I was playing the latest heartbreaker challenge and on level 3 i scored a triple crown when they froze on me and all was lost. I feel my points should be returned to me.

By Billy Elliott

When playing Reds Mighty Feathers Egg Defender #14 I skip over pig #4, so no matter how hard I try, I cannot get 3 stars. What’s up with that?

Very upset. Did update on Angry Birds Friends mid February, 2016 and in the last week I have been having trouble logging in? In the last couple of days, if I am lucky, I might get in after 20 to 30 attempts, I am leading in my league and it would have been nice to see the results. Please tell me how to get Angry Bird Friends game working again. I don’t even mind starting again from scratch, I just enjoy the game. HELP!!!

Who do I contact on having my update on my birday episode on. My iPad it keeps saying update but it. Won’t….update…

By Keaton

App keeps starting back up on its own when I try to quit. I have to force stop it every time I’m done. It’s annoying because I’ll be doing something else and suddenly Angry Birds pops up by itself for no reason and interrupts me, closing whatever I was doing.

By David Haslam

I have the opposite problem since I updated the app today – I cannot now open up the app. After completing the logging stage the app just closes down!

By Daniel Foord

Downloaded latest update and now the game won’t open on my iPhone.

Add me to the list of those who are dissatisfied with the latest update of AB2. My iPad just reverts to the home screen after a few seconds of trying to load the latest AB2. My advice is not to update until you hear positive comments in the Nest.
