Angry Birds for iPhone and iPad Go Free in App Store

The original iPhone and iPad versions of Rovio's hugely popular Angry Birds game are currently free for the first time on the App Store. TechCrunch says that the move is part of Apple's "App of the Week" promotion, although Apple has yet to update its App Store pages with new banners.

Angry Birds launched on the iPhone in December 2009, with the "HD" version for the iPad following in April 2010. Since January 2011, Rovio has offered free sampler versions of the apps with unique levels, but this is the first time the full versions of the game have been free on iOS. The Android version of the app has long been free, but that version is ad-supported while the free iOS version does not currently contain in-app ads.

In addition to the price drops, Rovio has also added 15 new levels to the "Bad Piggies" episode in the games. Angry Birds Space and Angry Birds Space HD have also been updated with a new theme song from legendary Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, who has also received his own honorary Angry Bird image.

If it's "free" as in "we'll keep trying to play video ads between each level" like they did for Bad Piggies, I'll pass.
