Can’t get Angry Birds Lite on the Market? Download the APK

Angry Birds for Android

Update: Full version of Angry Birds now available! Just go here for the full version.

Update: A lot of you aren’t having a problem grabbing Angry Birds Lite outside of the US. So for those of you who can’t see it on the Market, list your location, phone & OS in the comments

I’ve been noticing a lots of tweets lately on how Angry Birds Lite isn’t appearing on the Market outside of the United States. While I don’t doubt at all that Rovio plans on releasing the full version of the game internationally, the “lite” version is US-limited.

That doesn’t mean you have to go without it though, as we’ve got the actual APK and are offering it up for you guys to download. So read on past the break and get going. Oh, and if you’re using LauncherPro, then download the Angry Birds icons.

So just download the file, unzip it, throw it on your phone and install it :)

Angry Birds

Thanks Josh for the apk!

  • Eric

    I’m in the US and neither of my phones can see it on the market.

  • hallsey


  • Josh Morgan

    I have 2.1 on a Samsung Moment in the US and cannot get it. I downloaded the zip, and the unzipped has no APK. Do I just rename the file, deleting the .zip?

  • Scott Young

    The .zip certainly has an apk file in it.

  • Josh Morgan

    Hmmm. I tried unzipping on my phone, and it gave an error. When I did so on my desktop (Mac), it creates a folder with the following: AndroidManifest.xml, a folder named “assets,” classes.dex, folder “lib,” folder “META-INF,” folder “res,” resources.arsc

  • Tyler Cunningham

    I can confirm this .zip file contains the APK, it’s sitting on my Desktop and I sent it to my phone via Bluetooth.

  • Josh Morgan

    Unzipping it with a different program worked. That was strange. :)

  • Peter

    I’m not in the US and I can see it in the market.

    There really should be a way of seeing apps you can not install from the market and the reason why not. As it is it can be very frustrating to have no clue what is going on.

  • Ryan

    I live in Canada and I got it through the market. N1

  • munch

    I’m in the UK, got HTC desire. Found it easy on the market. Maybe its the yanks that CAN’T get it.

  • Dan

    I don’t know much about the game, but decided to give a try.. Let me guess, this only works for devices beyond 1.6?

  • Muttley

    I have it, downloaded on the market! HTC Desire 2.1 u1 on Tmobile in the UK.

  • chicgeek

    I had no issues immediately downloading it, and I have a sim-free HTC Desire in the UK. On T-Mobile network, but that shouldn’t matter.

    Someone’s sources are wonky.

  • rastaman

    HTC Hero running Eclair. I couldn’t find this on the market. Downloading the APK now.

  • Ratterz

    I am in the UK runing 1.6 on a G1. I can not see it on the market,and after unziping it failes to be read and thus won’t install.
    I geuss it is only Android 2.1 or later?
    Rather than a continental difference….

  • Step

    how bout a version that doesn’t crash? this is the only thing i miss from my iphone, and just look at the list of comments on the market place about it crashing on launch :(

  • Scott Young

    this is a beta version, there are going to be crashes/issues. If you want to be helpful, click on the bug in the program to report problems/crashes

  • JoAnn

    I am unable to find this on the Android Market. I have a Samsung Moment 2.1 and Sprint service. Love this game on my iPod Touch and would love to have it on my phone. thanks

  • isdwmd

  • Jason

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S running 2.1 on the O2 network in Ireland – not showing Angry Birds in the marketplace.

    My mate in work has a HTC (also on 2.1) and his one does list it – wierd.

  • Robbie

    I have an HTC Aria and I cannot find the game on the market and I get an error when I try to unzip the apk. Did they remove it already? Thanks

  • Dante

    I manually downloaded the APK onto my Samsung Moment (Sprint) and yeah it runs, but the backgrounds are screwed up, and sometimes vertical bars show up as artifacts. Otherwise, seems to work fine, but was obviously designed for a larger screen resolution as sometimes the buttons are on the very edge of the screen or they are laying on top of each other.

  • Max Sayn

    Germany Frankfurt, cannot find it in Market.

  • Carl Gargan

    Located it via AppBrain but when it connects to the android market it states “no matches found”

    i’m in the UK, Liverpool.

  • Kim

    You wont find the the app on the market for most new droid phones. You have to manually download the APK for Angry Birds and depending if your phone is unrooted or not you either install it using appinstaller or sideload it

  • Dom

    I have a galaxy s in the uk and its not on the market here.

  • Tom


    Email me @ and I will send you the apk file

  • Scott Young

    or just download it from the link above….

  • Equinox

    Angry Birds requires Android 2.2 Froyo to find it in the app store, hence all of the Galaxy S flavors will not see it yet.

  • Kevin

    In the US, I have an HTC Hero 2.1. Couldnt see it on the market, so downloaded and installed and it crashes on the startup splash screen.

    Samsung Galaxy Portal on 2.1, from the UK on tmobile not on the market. However, my friend has it on her Samsung Galaxy S running 2.1 on tmobile from the UK.

  • Amy

    Can’t see it in the market on Samsung Vibrant (galaxy S phone) running 2.1 . Side loading works fine.

  • Dalien

    I have a samsung galaxy s and still can’t see the angry birds beta. T-mobile, uk.

  • Mario

    HTC Hero GSM running stock Eclair in Mexico (phone is originally Spanish). Can’t see it.

  • Mario

    …should probably have been more specific. Originally phone was Orange Spain, unlocked it via IMEI and am now using a mexican SIM card so I assume I am in the Mexico market.

  • FatherStorm link to qr code for direct download of .apk

  • Ricky Mason

    You can get it at direct from your android browser, works great on my orange uk wildfire

  • Hero User

    For all HTC Hero users, you can download directly from the manufacturers mobile site using your phones browser. worked for me. HTC Hero 2.1 Sprint. Enjoy!

  • McLovin823

    Unable to see it on the Market in the Southwestern US with Droid Eris 2.1 stock.

    Also, downloaded the APK from the link above, unzipped it, tried to install it, and was told there was not enough space. I deleted a Yahoo! Fantasy Football App, and a couple others totaling almost 20MB of space, still unable to install a file that’s 12.23MB in size…

    Am I doing something wrong here?

  • Yury

    Cannot get Angry Birds in the Market. Does not show up.
    In the US, Los Angeles. FRG 2.2 on Nexus One.

  • dave

    Got it for my HTC Desire, but cant see it with my girlfriends HTC Legend… what up with that.

    I´m from Denmark and have the full version.

  • Tarzan55

    For all people having trouble installing it on samsung galaxy s, I would recommend using astro file manager. just download the zip from this page, extract it and instal it with built in like a charm!

  • matthew

    I have samsung behold 2 running 1.6 and doesnt show on market. Downloaded apk and just gte black screen… central u.s. here!!!

  • BikerDude

    Samsung SPICA, running 2.1 with Rogers in Ontario Canada… NOT IN MARKET. Thanks for the apk :-)

  • BikerDude

    for the file extraction issue… EASY… get your self a free DROPBOX account. Extract file on your computer and drop it in your folder… then just open from your android app :-)

  • ajatt

    you need to install the apk file through adb from the computer I was getting the not enough space error as well run it through usb adb.exe e.g. adb install C:/AndroidApps/angry_birds_1.1.apk)

  • iflyfar

    Not available on htc aria (seattle).

  • anomynous

    i is got the htc wildfire and i really want the angry birds app but cant get it

  • Kelly R

    Ok,i got the apk on my phone (samsung captivate 2.1) but of course it doesn’t let you install something not taken from the market. How do you get around this?

  • McLovin823

    Download Android AppBrain and Fast Web Installer from the Market. Run the fast web installer, and click allow when prompted. Ensure that you have an account with AppBrain on the internet, and your phone is able to sync up with it. From there, you are able to go onto the AppBrain website, and directly install Angry Birds to your handset, circumventing the Market altogether. Didn’t work all that well on my Eris, but it’s playable, with some buggy graphics. Good luck!

  • Rocky

    Hey , i just downloaded this app on my new dell streak and when click on the app the only thing i can hear is the music , cannot play the game , is this an issue with android 1.6 or dell streak ???

  • MannyVel

    I have a stock Dell Streak too, v1.6, and I only hear music with no video also with the full version of Angry Birds. Anyone knows what the deal is? It’s a VERY cool game :-)

    Manny (57 years old) :-D

  • John


    I have an HTC Hero, Android 2.1 and I’m in the UK. I can’t see Angry Birds in the Market, just a bunch of other downloads with names like “Angry Birds Theme” or “Angry Birds Icons” etc.

    I tried the .apk (which seems to be HUGE! I may have to install Apps2SD), but all I can see is the beta warning.


  • John

    Scratch my last comment, I’ve figured it out. It looks like there’s some screen cropping issues on the menu screen though.

  • Bridgitte

    I am unable to find it on my HTC Hero. I am in Dallas, TX. My husbands Moment has it but alas, I can not play :-(

  • Simon Belmont

    I have a Sprint HTC Hero and Angry Birds does not show up in the Android Market for me. I am a bit dismayed by this.

    I suppose I will have to search out the .apk file and install it manually. Oh well.

  • Lynn

    Singapore, Htc Magic & Android 1.5.
    I can’t find the app in Market and I want it badly! :-)

  • Ben

    Angry Birds is now in the marketplace. Downloading now!

  • John

    @Ben: Let us know if you can get it working smoothly – I have a Hero and it’s incredibly jerky. Pretty unplayable on all but the simplest of levels.

  • Ben

    @John: So far so good. I have played for about 3 or 4 hours and it did lock up on me once during an incoming phone call, but other than that, it has been flawless. HTC Aria.

  • John

    @Ben, hmmm ok that’s a little faster than my Hero. Maybe the “light” version that’s coming out will be ok

  • David

    i have a htc hero for cox communications and i live in nebraska and i can dind ulock alll levels and stuff but not the game itself
