Nokia N9 paid apps: Angry Birds

February 24, 2012

Since I’m able to use carrier billing to buy apps from the Nokia Store on my N9, I thought about sharing my opinion about the apps I’ve spent my money on.

As an huge Angry Birds enthusiast, buying Angry Birds was the logical next step after completing the 20 levels Angry Birds with Magic brings for free to all N9 owners.

The game is well-known and, as you can see in the video below, runs smoothly on the Nokia N9, bringing the exact same levels you can find on Angry Birds running on other platforms such as iOS and Android.

The game costs €2, so, it’s a bit pricey compared to the same game on other platforms, but for those who really like the game, it’s well worth the money!

Unlock all Angry Birds with Magic NFC levels

January 26, 2012

Some new Nokia smartphones, such as the N9, come with Angry Birds with Magic preloaded in the device for free.

I’m an Angry Birds enthusiast for a long time and one of those guys who has to achieve 3 stars in every level.

Angry Birds with Magic only packs a few well-known levels and most of them are locked, so you have to use the phone’s NFC capability to unlock it by pairing two NFC-capable devices with the same game.

While the whole idea is pretty cool, with the huge success of iOS and Android, it may be difficult for some Nokia users like me to actually find another Nokia NFC-enabled device to unlock 15 levels, since only 5 come originally unlocked.

I read somewhere that modern electronic passports can actually be detected by the N9 NFC chip since it uses the same type of RFID antenna built-in.

I tried it and it actually works brilliantly, so it’s the solution for those wanting to play all Angry Birds with Magic levels available in the game, as you can see in the video I’ve made.

Unfortunately, it’s still only 20 levels, and I’ve passed them in just one day, so the ultimate solution was to buy from the Nokia Store the full Angry Birds game that Rovio made available for the N9 recently.
