The Android game we have all been waiting for is now available to download, if you can get it to work. Rovio Mobile launched their hit game Angry Birds early this morning and decided to use the GetJar app store instead of the Android Market because “many people were experiencing problems in finding Angry Birds (beta) on Android Market”.
Unfortunately, it appears the game is so popular that is has been causing severe problems for GetJar’s servers and many people are experiencing problems downloading it. Fear not because Rovio has tweeted that the full game will be available in the official Android Market within 24 hours.
Angry Birds will only run on second-gen Android phones and upwards, with Android platform 1.6 or later (sorry CLIQers). Rovio also says that QVGA display resolution is not supported currently, but they will add support for QVGA devices soon.
Right now the free version of Angry Birds on GetJar features mobile advertising, but a future update will include the option to purchase and opt out of advertisements.
So good luck downloading Angry Birds! GetJar’s site last reported 100,000 people had downloaded the game so it looks like quite a few of you are already enjoying it. When we have an official Android Market download, this story will be updated with the link and QR code.
How to download: To get the game now, you can download Angry Birds on your device for free exclusively from GetJar (http://www.getjar.com/angry-birds). It will soon be available on the Android Market and Motorola SHOP4APPS, free of charge as well.
