Game is great, Updates are dreadful...
on November 28, 2012
Yes, it's great to have an ad free version of Angry Birds, but it comes at some additional costs (and I'm not just talking about the .99 price). First off, the updates are painfully slow to roll out. If Rovio updates the free version in the Google Play store, it will be months before Amazon gets around to updating the paid version. That's unfortunately true for most items in the Amazon App Store, but it's especially true for all Angry Birds Games. It took them over 3 months to get this latest update out, that's simply unacceptable.
In addition to the slow updates by Amazon, the past two updates erase all of your progress. So if you're like me and been playing the game casually over the two years since it's been around... everything you've achieved will be gone. Even various backup apps that save game progress won't work with these updates. I find that very unfair considering the time many people devote to this game. There should at least be a warning, but there isn't. So... those are the prices you pay for an ad free experience. I hope things improve down the line.
