Rovio has introduced a new system that allows you to sync your Angry Birds progress across multiple devices. Called Rovio Accounts, the cloud-based system is getting a staggered roll out across different countries and Rovio titles.

It will launch first with The Croods app globally, before being added to Angry Birds in Finland and Poland. Rovio says  in a blog post that the rest of the worldwide rollout will happen "gradually"

Being able to save across Angry Birds titles makes sense, especially given the sheer number of platforms on which the game now exists. Naturally, it will take a while for Rovio to get support to everything from smart TVs to phones, but it should mean you can eventually transfer your three-star ratings to every device.

At the moment, the entire Rovio product line-up accounts for 230 million active users a month. That is a huge number to contend with and, as such, is likely to be the reason for the slower rollout.

The baby of the Lint team, Hunter has been a tech fan since he bought his first MiniDisc..and what a waste of money that was. He began writing about electronics at the age of 16 and hasn't stopped since. Nowadays he fulfils his mobile phone and gaming obsession whilst attempting to distract people from his bizarre name. Regular meetings with the Gladiators crew see Hunter often returning to work battered and bruised. Considers himself a music obsessive, was once the most highly decorated scout in the country. Fan of trousers.
