Earlier this month Rovio Entertainment announced it would be launching another Angry Birds game on March 22nd. In an effort to build hype and advertise the launch of their new game Rovio went over the top by partnering with NASA (yes you read that right -NASA!) to broadcast the release of Angry Birds Space to a global audience.
But That's Not The Craziest Part
In partnering with T-Mobile they made Guerrilla Marketing history by strapping an oversized Angry Bird, on a 300ft tall slingshot, to the side of Seattle's world famous Space Needle. Fan's were even invited to the top of the space needle for the day to play the new game which features brand new physics-based action. Now that they're in space not only to players have to worry about those pesky pigs but also asteroid, moons, and planets that will mess with your head.
Why Did T-Mobile partner in this promotion?
T-Mobile's new device ,the Samsung Exhibit II 4G, will have clues that will provide access to a portal inside the T-Mobile app. From within this portal, Fans will be able to download the app, find hint to 'golden eggsteroid' levels, and other exclusive content.

Did you know that Fortune Magazine recently projected that Angry Birds makes over $1M per month, just from advertising within their app? This doesn't even account for all the Angry Birds related products that are being sold online- just ads within the game.
Anyways, we're fans of Angry Birds as a game but also got curious about how to create our own app. Even if it's just 1% as successful as Angry Birds, that's still good money...$10K/month- not bad!
We aren't iPhone developers or anything like that, but we started to find some pretty cool tutorials that walk you through creating and promoting an app without any previous experience.
We're still in the process so we don't have the app ready yet, but we wanted to share the Free the Apps tutorial we found that has been pretty helpful so far. It has been well worth it so far and we'll keep you posted on progress.
Check it out here and let us know what you think.
What's your app idea?
