While I knew that Angry Birds has turned into this massive juggernaut beyond the iPhone game with a ton of merchandise to let you declare your support for the unforgiving fowls with an officially branded hoodie, flip flops, or lunch box, I didn’t expect Rovio to branch out into the cookbook app area. But, here we are with Bad Piggies Best Egg Recipes hitting the App Store this week. It’s in the App Store’s Books category and offers over 40 recipes for tasty ways to cook eggs that you stole from unsuspecting birds. Or, eggs you legitimately paid for.
Bad Piggies Best Egg Recipes features the avian and porcine characters from Rovio’s games, complete with animations and sound effects to get you in the appropriate mood. The recipes include step-by-step written directions plus pictures so you have an idea of what your concoction should look like once complete. You can rate recipes and bookmark them and a handy in-app egg timer will help you stay on track as you cook as well. You can also take snapshots of your completed creations and share them with others via Facebook.
Bad Piggies Best Egg Recipes is available for the iPad only and requires iOS 4.3 or later. It’s currently priced at $.99 for a limited time and will go up to $4.99 after this introductory sale. It’s very cute and there several recipes that I’ve never heard of so if you love eggs, it’s a worthy purchase at $.99 though I don’t think I could recommend it once it goes up to its regular price of $4.99 unless you’re a die-hard Angry Birds fan.
