This is a story that hit me personally. I’ve had to swap my Nexus One a few times for various issues, plus I’ve installed a number of custom ROMs and such. And, each time I started fresh, I would have to start from the beginning in Angry Birds and other games. Now, Rovio wants to end that mess by adding device syncing to Angry Birds.
The plan is simple: Angry Birds will backup your progress to the cloud, so if you buy a new Android device or make the switch from Android to iOS or visa versa, you’ll never again lose your progress. Not a bad idea, and one that I would love to see become standard in all games. There is nothing that kills my urge to play a game more than losing my progress, and unfortunately aside from some options for root users, there aren’t any solutions for saving game data like that.
There isn’t a specific timeline for the update, but Rovio has said that it will happen “before summer”.
