Rovio intros Accounts for cross-device game sync
Ever find yourself installing a game, –let’s say, Angry Birds– on one device that you’ve already started playing on another handset? Maybe you purchased a tablet and thought, “Hey, I bet it’s a lot easier to play on the 7-inch screen.” What happens? You log in, and have to start all over again. Agonizing, isn’t it?
Rovio has introduced a feature called Rovio Accounts which lets you sync your levels across multiple devices and back up your progress. A long time coming, it should help ease your three-star frustrations.
Rovio Account lets you store your game progress and continue playing on another device…Our fans have been asking for a way to play their game on different phones or tablets without losing their progress when changing the device. This is exactly what Rovio Account lets you do!
Unfortunately, this isn’t something you’ll find on all of the Rovio titles; Rovio Account is currently available in The Croods game and in Angry Birds on iOS in Finland and Poland. A global expansion is expected for the flagship game and the other Rovio titles.
