Rovio Account launches on iOS and Android: Play on one device, pick up on another
Delivers 'seamless sync experience'
Rovio has announced its new cross-platform tool, Rovio Account, has now rolled out on iOS and Android, allowing players to halt play on one device and pick up on another.
To make use of the service, players taking on the original Angry Birds or The Croods are required to sign up, with support for further games incoming.

Though pitched as a way to deliver a "seamless sync experience" for Rovio aficionados, the service will also enable the Finnish developer to amass a handy batch of its loyal users.
"Today we're thrilled to announce that Rovio Account is now globally available on iOS and Android devices," detailed Rovio on its blog.
"We know that you've all been waiting for a way to sync progress between devices and we really feel that we have an amazing solution in place now.”
There's currently no word on whether Rovio will look to deploy Rovio Account across other platforms, such as Windows Phone or BlackBerry, in the future.
