    Congratulations! Not to burst your “bubble”, of course, but Angry Birds is a paid app. Bubble Ball has beaten Angry Birds Seasons Free.

    I would love to understand (besides the playability) what drove the performance (marketing campaign, word of mouth, etc)? Millions of users in this forum maybe :)?

    Congrats to Robert!

    I just saw a video about this story on Yahoo! News. Very impressive. The story said that had he charged $1 for each download, he could have had enogh money to cover 4 year’s wort of tuition at Brigham Young University (his universityof choice for the future) a hundred times over. I could not help but think to myself, ‘Why would a boy obviously so resourceful and savvy waste time and money to get a degree?’ He obviously doesn’t need it, and most degrees are not worth the paper they’re printed on. I hope he changes his mind.

    If he had charged money he might not have had the success he did.

    Corona guys, did he actually buy a $349 dollar license!? Lot of money for a child his age. If he hasn’t bought it yet you should probably gift him a copy for all this exposure.
