    It's funny how I went from not being interested in another market to frantically trying to get the page at Amazon coming up just so I can get Angry Birds Rio for free. This free app a day thing sounds awesome, but I can't see it lasting long if they have to give developers 20% of the list price each time.

    I got the Angry Birds Rio, but the Amazon Appstore is a stupid concept.

    now what I want to know is if I pay for Angry Birds and Angry Birds seasons, will I get rid of the adds AND keep my current save game in it?

    Seriously... those ads are far too intrusive to the actual game... of all the corners they could have put them in, they chose that one.

    According to some reviews on the amazon app store it does keep your saved game

    that's all I needed to hear, thanks.

    Lord knows if I'll ever use this app store again.

    No Canadian AB love from AZ - after an hour setting up account/configuring/etc etc etc, get an error message "not yet available in your region" when I finally click download. Any workarounds? Any way to get the Angry Birds Rio APK outside of "normal channels"?

    Got my AB Rio, but having an issue with the app crashing - as soon as I start the first map it crashes back to homescreen - no force close notices or anything. Anyone else have the same issue, or know how to resolve?

    I couldn't install the Amazon app via a browser on my rooted Nook Color, so I downloaded it and installed with adb. Angry Birds downloaded, but I get a popup message:

    Installation of download apks is not supported

    I have no issues installing apps from the Android Market and have enabled non-market apps, as well.

    Edit: Solved! http://forum.androidcentral.com/show...380#post754072

    About a couple of months ago Angry Birds stopped installing on my SD card ... My solution was to unmount ... download ... install ... re-mount ... then move to SD card ... Now with Amazon ... Angry Birds RIO won't install at all if the SD isn't mounted ... Does anyone know of a work-a-round ... Unrooted EVO 4G

    I thought it was working well but after rebooting my phone for an unrelated reason Angry Birds Rio appeared to have been gumming up the works for Launcher Pro - it really slowed it down. I uninstalled the birds and all is well again. It might use some serious memory, either while running the game or just in the background. So if you start having problems, try uninstalling the birds.

    It works just fine for me, the major issue I have is you cannot open Angry Birds Rio without first going into the Amazon Appstore and then you can open the app! Rio shows up as an application on my DX but I can't find an icon for it anywhere, then again the Amazon Appstore icon is only showing up as a Running App and not even as an app with the rest of my apps.

    To me this is a major f'up on Amazon's part and a major turn off to me. I do no to need to be connected to Amazon constantly in order to run and use any apps. Stupid business model...

    Got my issues figured out. I uninstalled and reinstalled AB Rio, and once I opened the app from inside the app store, it now works normally and will run from the icon in my app drawer. Maybe this is how the DRM works...??? Just guessing. Anyway - back to Rio for me!!!

    I've tried that several times. I also don't have the Amazon Appstore icon in my app drawer, it is only appearing as a running app and not in the app drawer. I have uninstalled both the Appstore and ABRio and reinstalled... same issue.

    Tried contacting Amazon but they are being inundated with issues so they can't keep up.

    That was absolutely ridiculous!

    First setting up the Amazon.com account.

    Then the market app wouldn't download directly to my phone, so I had to download it on my computer and manually install it to the phone.

    Once the market app was running, it said I couldn't get Rio without entering a payment type in my 1-click settings. So I did that.

    Tried to get Rio again. It said I needed an address in my 1-click settings. So I did that.

    Tried to get Rio again. It said I needed to enable 1-click settings. So I did that.

    Tried to get Rio again. It comes up and says it is not available in my region.

    Fail.

    I'm having this same issue on my unrooted Droid Incredible. Is there a way to download it to your computer and then manually install it on the phone?

    i installed amazon appstore, and then got angry birds rio from the appstore. i then proceeded to pull the com.rovio.angrybirdsrio.apk off of my phone, and tried installing it standalone, without the amazon appstore (which is now officially crapware now that i have angry birds rio). unfortunately, when i went to start angry birds rio, i got a message that said that the amazon appstore has to be installed AND logged in for the app to work. what a load of crap. we need an apk of the game that can stand on it's own without needing to have other crap installed.

    As per my last post, I couldn't get AB Rio via the amazon app store, so I googled AB Rio apk and found several download sites for it. Downloaded it off of one, cut and pasted it onto the SD card in my N1 and booted it up no problem. The app is running fine and I do not have the amazon app store installed (although I do have the amazon MP3 app that was preinstalled on my N1), so it appears the it can run without the amazon store app installed.
