    Rovio Goes Gravity-Free With Angry Birds Space (Video)

    Curious how Rovio planned on dealing with physics in the forthcoming Angry Birds Space? I have been, too.

    I’m not even going to pretend that you don’t know what Angry Birds is… that would be insulting to both you and the game. But do you know what Angry Birds Space is? Nah, I didn’t think so. And truth be told, I’m not quite sure what it is either. According to Rovio, Angry Birds Space will be the biggest launch for the company to date. Remember what a big deal… Read More

    Going to a fancy State Gala? Married to a Rovio executive? Angry Birds dresses are SO IN this season. If you’ve ever met Rovio CMO Peter Vesterbacka, you’ve probably learned two things: 1) Peter is good people, and 2) he really, really likes his Angry Birds sweatshirt.

    Can We Stop The Copycat Apps?

    Last month, Alexia posted a short manifesto (“Stop Making Apps”), which basically expresses a serious case of app fatigue. It’s something most of us can relate to, at least passingly, in spite of knowing there’s no end to app production in sight. As long as there are downloaders, more apps there will be. While I encourage developers to continue making great apps, I… Read More
