The Angry Birds franchise, with its simple gameplay mechanics, has been an absolute success throughout its past few years of existence. Let's face it, though: Rovio, the developer behind the series, probably took the whole concept a little too far, and the franchise has faced its demise for some angry gamers. Each of the new titles that are simply re-skinned and then re-released just aren't cutting it. To prolong its overall dominance in the App Store, Rovio will soon be launching a new game that they hope will similarly turn into a worldwide phenomenon. This time, however, gamers will play in the point of view of the pigs, who were previously the antagonists of the Angry Birds series.
Last week our friends at App Cubby released a free, sponsored version of Gas Cubby called Gas Cubby by FRAM [App Store, Free]. As you may recall from our review, Gas Cubby is a fuel economy, service, and vehicle expense tracking application and it's very useful. I use it regularly, so I was happy to see a free version become available so everyone can try it.
The free version includes all of the same great features as the paid version, with the inclusion of ads and the exclusion of sync. Aside from those two differences, it's exactly the same. If you do end up enjoying the sponsored version, the paid version of Gass Cubby [App Store, $6.99] is totally worth it.
