We’ve been following the Angry Birds obsession for awhile now and after showcasing an early APK, the Android Game finally launched yesterday. The response was so spectacular that downloaders actually crashed the GetJar servers.
You need a LOT of traffic to crash the GetJar servers, that’s for sure, but what Angry Birds is reporting is absolutely astounding. Based on a tweet from RovioMobile, makers of Angry Birds, the game was downloaded 1 million times in the first day!
This has got to be a record for the Android Market. Not only that but I think this may serve as a pivotal point in the Android timeline where developers and companies start to acknowledge the explosive power of Android.
It looks like Android and Angry Birds are Big Pimpin… “Men lie. Women lie. Numbers don’t.”
