Angry Birds is one of the most addictive games I’ve ever played. The only way I can quit for the night is by winning a level and not looking at the next level! I’m not addicted, I can quit any time I want. I’ve quit three times already today.
All humor aside, one of the major flaws with the game is the lack of user profiles. You become so involved in the game that everything you accomplish is your accomplishment — you don’t want your game being dirtied up by someone else. To remedy this most console or PC games let you select a user prior to gameplay to keep your accomplishments separate from another, but Angry Birds doesn’t have that feature built in.
Angry Aviary is an add-on app for Angry Birds that does just that. Unfortunately, to let you swap out user profiles in this manner the app has to use some elevated permissions, so you’ve got to have superuser access to use the app.
So, if you and your significant other share an Android and are both addicted to Angry Birds, this app just might save your relationship!
It’s not perfect. I’d like to see an update to Angry Birds that will ask for your Google Account and let you store your progress and scores online so when you wipe your phone, or switch to a new one you won’t have lost your progress and have to start over. Using this methodology you could theoretically add support for multiple Google Accounts, or just basic (on-device) users (with no online backup).
I’d write more, but those pigs just ran off with the eggs again!
