By Ryan Martin, Writer

Have you ever wondered “How many times has Angry Birds been downloaded”? Luckily for you, Rovio CEO, Mikael Hed, announced that it has reached 42 million downloads with more than 25% of those downloads being paid for.

In a Q and A with AOL/TechCrunch’s MG Siegler, Hed announced that Angry Birds has reached 12 million paid downloads with most of those coming from the iPhone while the other 30 million free downloads coming from the recently released Andriod app.

Rovio has only been going for 7 years but in that short time they have released 53 games, created Angry Birds toys and are currently working on bringing Angry Birds to the Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and are beginning work on Angry Birds 2. They are also considering a feature film.

Rovio have certainly been busy.
