Rovio gradually introducing accounts to sync gameplay across all devices

Developer Rovio is gradually introducing Rovio Accounts, a service that will allow players to sync and save their games across multiple devices, the company revealed on the official Rovio blog.

With a Rovio Account, players can store their game progress in the cloud while playing on one device and pick up where they left off on another. For devices with multiple users, each player with a Rovio Account can have their own game save. Power-ups for games will not be saved across devices because they are stored on the device itself, and are available to everyone playing on that device.

"Our fans have been asking for a way to play their game on different phones or tablets without losing their progress when changing the device," the company said in a statement. "This is exactly what Rovio Account lets you do."

The service is currently available for Angry Birds on iOS in Finland and Poland, as well as globally for The Croods on iOS, Android and Kindle Fire. Rovio plans to "gradually" introduce Rovio Accounts in more regions and implement new features in the future.
