Milestone reached in under two months, developer confirms

Rovio Mobile's Angry Birds game has been downloaded more than seven million times on Android since its release in mid-October.

The developer revealed the milestone in a tweet, responding to questions about why the game was made free and ad-supported for Android.

When Twitter user 'Andrew4Lyf' pointed out that "Not all android games are free", Rovio responded thus:

"True, but the ones with more than 50K downloads are... We just hit 7M downloads on Android".
