Angry Birds downloaded 6.5 million times on Christmas Day alone

Is there any stopping it?

Titles in the Angry Birds series of games were downloaded 6.5 million times on Christmas Day alone, according to developer Rovio.


Impressively, the tally - which includes both paid and free downloads of Angry Birds and its spin-offs - is almost equal to the total number of smartphone activated over the Christmas period, reports All Things Digital.

It's also more than three times the two million downloads Rovio managed over Christmas 2010.

VP of franchise development, Ville Heijari said: "We're really excited to have such a massive number of new people get acquainted with Angry Birds over the holidays - we have exciting new releases lined up for 2012, and can't wait to introduce them to the public."

Angry Birds reportedly hit 500 million total downloads in November last year. Is there anyone left out there who hasn't downloaded it?
