The Angry Birds Is The Top-Selling iPhone App Of 2010

An administrative at Rovio Mobile, the developer of the best-selling i Phone game "Angry Birds," said that Apple will be the number one platform for developers for a long time, calling the Android ecosystem disjointed.

Peter Vesterbacka, Rovio Mobile's "Powerful Eagle," stated Apple's continued dominance during an interview with Tech N' Marketing earlier this week.

Since its release in December 2009, Rovio Mobile's "Angry Birds" iPhone game has turn out to be a global phenomenon. The game had a slow start, but ultimately took off; reaching 50 million downloads crossways platforms. According to Vesterbacka, "Angry Birds" has remained at number one on Apple's App store up "longer than anybody else."

The game's characters have grown to be so iconic that some Wall Street analysts have begins using the birds as a symbol for the promising profitability of the mobile app market.

When they asked how he viewed a variety of mobile OSes in look upon to the future of mobile technology, Vesterbacka replied, Apple will be the number one platform for a long time from a developer point of view, they have gotten so many things right. And they know what they are responsibility and they calling the shots.

Moving on to Android, Vesterbacka stated that Android's dissolution problems are not a device issue, but an ecosystem one. "Android is growing, but it’s also growing difficulty at the same time. Device fragmentation not the issue, but rather the fragmentation of the ecosystem," he said.

With many different shops, many different models and "the carriers messing with the occurrence again," Android is suitable chaotic for Vesterbacka, who called it “open, but not really open, a very Google centric ecology.”

Rovio released the Android version of "Angry Birds" as a free ad-based app ealier this year, calling it "the Google technique." According to Vesterbacka, "paid content just does not work on Android."

During the interview, Vesterbacka approved with recent comments from Apple CEO Steve Jobs about advance difficulties on Android. "Steve is utterly right when he says that there are more challenges for developers when working with Android," he said.

According to Vesterbacka, developers will ultimately figure out how to work within the Android ecosystem, but "nobody else will be capable to build what Apple has built, there just is not that kind of market power not in there."
