Angry Birds HD's Big, Buggy Update Might Make You an Angry PersonS

If you're a fan of Angry Birds on the iPhone, it stands to reason that you'd enjoy angrier, higher-definition birds on your iPad. That app just got a pig-popping, 45 level update, but it's reportedly crashing just like its birds.

The big iPad update finally justifies the $5 price tag (as opposed to the $1 non-HD version), with new themes, achievements, and a host of new levels. But App Store reviewers are saying that it's crashing like crazy, and some are even reporting that the update is erasing all of their progress in the game. For anyone who plays, there's no need to explain how serious a disaster that would be.

The Angry Birds team has submitted a bug-fixing update the App Store and hopefully it'll get approved soon. To recap: Angry Birds HD just got a lot more awesome, but don't spring for the update quite yet. [iTunes]
