Rovio has announced that Angry Birds has been downloaded 500 million times since its release on December 11, 2009. “It’s more than any game ever before,” said the firm’s marketing boss Peter Vesterbacka, who added that the firm’s next goal is to reach 1 billion downloads. Earlier this year, Rovio raised $42 million from venture capital firms, and has expanded the franchise into toys as well as baby and pet products. Via Reuters.

    That’s what, somewhere around a thirtieth of the total number of downloaded apps on App Store?

    I guess 500 million includes the Android downloads as well, but still – mental.
