The virally popular mobile game saw soaring popularity over the Christmas period with high download numbers across all Angry Birds titles.
The various Angry Birds games were downloaded over 30 million times in the Christmas week (December 22 – 29) and achieved a whopping eight million downloads on Christmas day alone. Precise numbers for each title haven’t been released yet, but Rovio is proud to tout the impressive number of total downloads for now.
It’s worth nothing that on Christmas day 17.4 million Android and iOS devices were activated for the first time. Compare that to the eight million downloads on Christmas day and you’ve got nearly half the people who received a new device for Christmas downloading a version of Angry Birds. That’s a lot of flying birds.
