Rovio Posts Easter Update Screenshots, “Angry Birds Sync” Coming This Summer

Following last week’s report about Angry Birds Seasons getting an “amazing update” before Easter, the Rovio developers have posted the first screenshots of the update – which unsurprisingly will feature lots of eggs, bunnies and, overall, 15 new levels for iPhone and iPad users. Rovio will also release 3 new levels on the Facebook version of the app – you should have lots to play this Easter if you’re a die-hard Angry Birds fan.

Meanwhile, Rovio keeps giving out interesting details about future developments of the Angry Birds franchise through a series of replies to their customers on Twitter. The latest tidbit comes in the form of a tweet that confirms the company is still working hard on a cross-platform sync solution (Angry Birds Sync, perhaps) that should allow users to easily switch devices without losing their Angry Birds progress and records. This was possible before with a bit of manual hacking on iOS devices, but real iOS - Android - Facebook sync would be perfect for Angry Birds. Rovio says sync should come before summer.
