Angry Birds fired onto PCs – for free
Currys and PC World are hoping to give their PC app stores a boost – by giving away copies of the ridiculously popular Angry Birds.
The game first took off on the Apple iPhone, before spreading its wings to Android devices, the Mac App Store, and now the Intel AppUp Stores operated by the high street retailers.
Intel’s AppUp store has actually been up and running for a few months, but it’s failed to generate anything like the attention lavished on the Mac App Store, which was unfairly credited with bringing so-called “apps” to computers.
To help raise the profile of their stores, Currys and PC World will give away 15,000 copies of the game for free, starting 1 February. Should you miss the free copy, downloading the game will cost a whopping £3.49.
However, after installing AppUp and setting up an account, we’ve been unable to actually login to start downloading.
