Any else having stability problems with the new Angry Birds update?

In chapter 7 (night/city scene), when a level is completed, it doesn't finish the process and let you move on to the next level. You hear the cheer, get credit for your leftover birds, then it does nothing. And interestingly enough. If you click home twice, then touch the screen to go back into the game, you hear the cheer again, and get credit for your leftover birds, again. So your score keeps racking up. But you still can't move onto the next level.

Anyone else experience this?

it's obviously a problem. the updated graphics for retina display probably caused this.

Ok, glad it's not just me. Maybe they'll put out another update. They've done two in the last few days. I think they keep causing more problems.

since the update I've found moving on to the next level requires a lot more time. Before it would instantly display the star ranking but now it would take 3-5 seconds just to get to that screen.

I hate these updates! Ever since 1.4.2 I cannot open the game. It freezes on black screen for a couple seconds, then goes back to home screen. I had 3 stars on every single available level before the update so I don't want to erase & reinstall.

They need to FIX this!

Since the last update (Oct. 1, Version 1.4.4) everything seems to be working ok for me again. Anyone still having problems with this Oct 1 update?

I'm gonna hang on until the next update and if that doesn't fix it then I guess I'll just have to delete it and start over.

I can't stand that they now have retina display for the iphone / ipod touch 4, for $.99, but they want to charge $4.99 for an iPad version, which is the exact same game. They offer a great deal on the iphone but are raping the iPad customers.

choppy/hiccup graphics on 3GS, 1.4.4, iOS4.1

I have the same problem with the animation being jerky and inconsistent. Takes the flow out of the fling and screws up timing. Frustrating. It is the kind of thing that a graphics update/upgrade could cause.

Update fix, please??

Angry Bird Freeze

We just bought a new iPod touch for my son for Christmas but we are having trouble with the Angry Birds app. When he tries to replay a level, sometimes he accidentally hits the Eagle Eye button but the window comes up so far down in the right hand corner that you can't hit the 'x' to close the window. As a result, you are stuck and can't do anything.

I have removed and re-installed the app once but would like to avoid having my son start all over again. Any suggestions on how to clear the Eagle Eye window if you can't tap on the 'x'? Thanks!

I had the same problem so I just turned off my ipod touch & let it sit for a minute then turned it back on. It is working again (without reinstalling, thank god!) and now I will just avoid clicking the eagle eye! I couldn't really find any other solutions when I searched google either.... Good Luck!

Have you found any way of fixing this I am having the same issue.
