I Download it from AppBrain Market with no problem.

You need to install on your phone both Appbrain Market App and their Fast Web Installer then download it from there

AppBrain App Market - Android app on AppBrain
Fast Web Installer - Android app on AppBrain

Hope this helps

It's extremely laggy here. Far more so than the beta, even with ads blocked.

Agreed - so disappointing that I've gone back to the beta which at least is playable. Being able to play this smoothly is probably the only reason I would want to get a newer phone!

Did anyone have issues with it installing? I got the insufficient storage error. I have enough space (about 100mb). I think maybe because it's to do with Apps2SD? Is there a work around?

Yeah - only because I am a big geek and I want to play the best games on my phone - the hero is getting old now and sadly unless you root your phone we can't install games to SD - which means we have limited space for games - especially for games like angry birds which are in comparison large.

Also over here in the UK my carrier - Orange - released the 2.1 update and really made a mess of it - my phone sometimes won't send txt messages / loses its signal etc so I just want a new phone

However my contract won't allow me to till October 2011...!

Awww That sucks, lol,
Thats too bad about your 2.1 update, i got mine and seems fine,
Although my phone seems kind of laggy every now and again but for the most part its acting fine.

This embarrases me, my friends mostly have iphones and it runs great - but not on Android, one more reason to move to the dark side.

What on earth are you talking about?

Just cos it doesnt run on the hero's underpowered processor doesnt mean it doesnt run just fine on more powerful android handsets (i.e. pretty much all of them) - I doubt very much that it runs well on a v1 iPhone for that matter.

The iphone has its pros, but it also has a lot of cons. The iphone is not better than a droid, it is more of a choice in what you want. Also, AT&T... really... here is an example...

It's not android that it doesn't work on - it's the old HTC Hero....

There's a difference.
