Good Free App of the Day: Twelve Angry Birds games and three bonus Rovio apps

ABGothumbOur Grand Poobah ran around the virtual office flailing his arms around like a Muppet, screaming, "Free! We need more free apps! You, over there! Make me a list of Rovio apps!" I got straight to work like a little freebie elf, but without the pointy shoes. Lucky for you, Rovio has ten (yes, ten!) always-free Angry Birds apps as well as The Croods, Amazing Alex and Bad Piggies.

There are thirteen apps to browse in this list. Some are full versions — Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Go! and Angry Birds Friends — while some are the lite versions to give users a taste of the fun available in the full, paid versions. I'm so excited about all of these freebies in one place that I'm now running around the virtual office and flailing my very own Muppet-elf arms, chirping "Free! Look, Poobah! Free!"

Please support Smart Apps for Kids by using the links provided by each app. First, a little nitty-gritty on what's inside:



Although the lite versions reserve the right to use third-party ads, the full versions do not contain them. Rovio Entertainment Ltd. also has external links to social media and in-app purchases.

 What's free? The full versions come complete with no need for purchases.

What's not free? Power-ups to enhance or hurry gameplay are not free.
