Our insane stat of the day involves Rovio's Angry Birds Rio app, which has been downloaded a whopping 10 million times in just 10 days following its March 22 release. That includes downloads for both iOS and Android. Angry Birds Rio is a $0.99 download via iOS, but was made available for free on Android through an agreement with Amazon on its new Appstore for Android.

The 10 million download milestone was revealed in a cryptic tweet from Rio and later clarified by Mobile-Ent.biz .

"10 in 10:-) Angry Birds Rio breaking all records. A massive thanks to all our fans!!!," Rovio tweeted .

As of today, Angry Birds Rio is still being offered for free on Amazon's Appstore, though it's unclear how long the promotion will last. The normal price is $0.99, same as for iOS, or $2.99 for the iPad version.

According to Gamasutra , it took the original Angry Birds 10 months to notch 10 million downloads, all of which were paid downloads on the iTunes App Store. The original app now boasts more than 100 million downloads and over 40 million active users.
