    And now the stupid ads are at the top! You have to wait for them to go away 'cause you can't see the full screen. The level stats are up there too.
    I really want an ad free version, the new update is sucky ad-wise.

    Root + AdFree Android - Android app on AppBrain = No Ads in Angry Birds.

    I know the devs get supported by putting ads in the apps, but when the ads get to become very intrusive, people are going to look harder to eliminate them.

    AdFree is even more valuable when using the browser. You can eliminate a lot of bandwidth by cutting out ads on webpages.

    I don't mind ads, but these are seriously in the way and interfere with the game. That is not right. It was fine before, they were at the bottom and not an issue...until the video ads started popping up. Those were/are wrong too.
    I would so buy this game, it's a great game but almost too annoying to play right now. I don't understand why there isn't a paid version, I'm not the only one who would pony up and buy it! They need to have a paid version and a free version!!
    Much like Winter Warlock, I have become disenchanted. lol

    These new ads are terrible. They are really short changing us by not giving us a paid ad free version, doesn't the iphone have a paid ad free version?

    Fortunately I got mine "elsewhere". Don't remember where that elsewhere was but my ads are still at the bottom and disappear quickly.
    I can almost predict they are coming out with a paid version. Make the game unplayable and force people to buy. I won't succumb to such tactics.
    BUT, I would have paid for it in the first place when they came out with the full version. Their loss. Hope they got a lot from the advertising. Funny thing is I can't tell you what one of the ads is for.... :)

    NOTE: I just got an e-mail stating MASSIVE UPDATE! I e-mailed them back asking them (nicely) to correct the ad problem.

    Feel the same way! Would have brought this game from the start, but treating android users like this is really turning me off from this game.

    Worked like a charm. Thanks. I am surprised so many people are complaining in this thread when you posted such a simple solution.

    Just downloaded the update, and yes, it does run rather slow on my Eris. But, at least I can see all of the graphics now instead of blank area where the scenery should be. I guess it's a trade-off for having a lower end phone.

    Hi All!


    I am fairly new to the Android scene, having just gotten my first Droid X. I downloaded the Angry Birds update after completing all the levels on the original, but the new levels aren’t showing up! I cleared my cache and moved the app from my phone to my SD card, but nothing. I haven’t ‘cleared the data’ because I am worried it will kill all my progress.


    Any tips?

    I refused to reinstall it after resetting my phone. @#$% intrusive ads!

    Its funny. They make how much money from the ads and all... then when they get 10 million downloads they will release an ad free version for .xx? Make twice the money from Android then iOS. Just wish the ad was not in the freakin way!

    The game used to be quite slow, but after the update it's unplayable on Samsung I5700. Uninstalled, I'm sick of the game anyway. I might reinstall it after they update it again.

    Uninstalled, emailed head shed and left feedback ; Rovio - Blog

    But because I'm nice ;) if you don't want the ads just turn all data connections off, might help with the speed problem others are having too :)

    yup, ad location sucks now and it kills the framerate. I hope this isn't a ploy to make us want to buy the paid version.

    I downloaded and thought I installed the new version, but somehow it didn't take. I still have 1.3.5.

    I will report back when I get the new one installed.
