It’s still surprising in this inter-connected age that a company can get caught thinking they can pull one over on people. And yet, they do.
Case in point: The wildly-popular Angry Birds iPhone game just got upgraded to an iPad “HD” edition, and the price jumped 500%.
Which, at a mere five dollars, would still be a bargain, if it weren’t for the fact that, as many have noted on its iTunes page, it’s just an upsizing of the iPhone app, with no new features or functionality. As ttrygve says:
It also didn’t move or resize the buttons at all, they’re still laid out as though for an iPhone, meaning they’re not at all conveniently placed… I feel ripped off, though I still heartily recommend the iPhone version.
In about 30 seconds I went from, “Hello new purchase for the iPad!” to feeling like I dodged a bullet, thanks to my new anonymous friends.
