Looks like Rovio’s grinning green pigs are capable of more than just antagonizing birds.
Today saw the Finnish mobile gaming giant launch a recipe book app for the iPad featuring the antagonists of the Angry Birds franchise of games. Given the habits of the pigs in those games, it should hardly be surprising that the recipes are all about eggs.
Social is baked deep into the app, which means you can share and comment on the recipes with your friends.
“We wanted to create a cookbook that brings a family together to actively do things together with the characters they all love,” said Peter Vesterbacka, ‘Mighty Eagle’ and CMO.
The app includes step-by-step photographic instructions for the recipes. Oh, and naturally there’s a built-in egg-timer.
“What makes this cookbook special is that the photographs of the app are taken by the pigs, which means that your own dish always looks better than the ones in the book,” said Sanna Lukander, VP of Books. “Quite a change from the average cookbooks on the market!”
If you fancy getting your egg on, then you can down load the app from the App Store. For the next little while, you’ll be able to get your hands on those recipes for US$ 0.99 before the price goes back up to US$4.99.
