Rovio claims app is 'fastest growing mobile game'
Rovio has announced that Angry Birds Space has reached 50 million downloads in a space of just 35 days. The developer says that the title has broken all of its previous records, and in fact claims that Space is "the fastest growing mobile game yet," though no comparison points are quoted. Mobile versions of Space are available for the iPhone, the iPad, and various Android devices; Windows and Mac editions are also on sale.
Space is the latest release in Rovio's unusually popular series of mobile games. The new game earlier cracked 10 million downloads in three days. At the end of a blog post announcing the current milestone, Rovio promises that "something even bigger is on its way."
