Fortumo Cracks Open Piggy Bank To Let Android Devs Offer Carrier Billing Via SMS
You remember Bad Piggy Bank, the in-game payment model for Rovio‘s Angry Birds on Android which lets users either remove the ad on the free version of the game or buy the pending Mighty Eagle update. Yes, the one that circumvents Android’s own app store payment system in favour of carrier billing.
Well, it’s actually powered by European mobile payments provider Fortumo, who today has announced that they are cracking open the Piggy Bank some more by adding support for offline payments (via SMS text messaging) to its Android library.
That’s the same in-app payments library as used by Angry Birds, which any Android developer can now have free access to.
