This Week's Android Charts: The Angry Birds Star Wars Escalate

At this point I am running out of Angry Birds Star Wars images, so I've started using Photoshop filters I normally wouldn't touch. Hey look, it's Water Paper. Kids love Water Paper.

I knew Rovio's latest bird-flinger would dominate the charts this week, but I didn't take into consideration Android having both a paid and a free edition of Angry Birds Star Wars.

I can't wait to see which Photoshop filter I get to use next. I'm thinking Plastic Wrap, but Glowing Edges has a certain charm.
