1. If you're going to buy anything, get the coin doubler

Angry Birds Go!: Top 10 tips, tricks, and cheats!

Angry Birds Go! is one of those games that makes it very easy to spend a lot of money on in-app purchases if you aren't careful. If you decide you're willing to shell out some cash, do it on something that you continuously get rewarded from. The coin doubler is $6.99 but you keep it forever and every single coin you collect counts as two. That means you rack up your total twice as fast.

2. Drive on the inside of the track whenever possible

Obviously the best route is always the shortest ones. Taking tight turns and staying on the inside of the track can shave off distance and overall time. Obviously if there's a gem on the outside of the track and you have enough of a lead or enough time to pick it up, by all means do so. But if you're racing against the clock or having a hard time passing an opponent, staying on the inside helps you gain some ground.

3. Time your power ups right

You're limited on power ups and using them at the right time makes the most sense. That means don't use a speed boost right before you're going to go around a corner. The odds of you slamming into a wall and wasting it are high. Instead, use it in a wide open space. Also look for cues on power ups like bubbles that elevate you. If you see a stream of coins in the air, that's probably a good time to use it.

4. Aim matters when you're launching off

When you launch off from the starting block, make sure you aim well. Normally I aim for the inside of the track whenever possible. Depending on how you aim, it could be the difference between starting off in the lead or getting stuck on an opponent and not being able to make up the time.

5. Upgrade acceleration and top speed before anything else

Angry Birds Go!: Top 10 tips, tricks, and cheats!

When you're upgrading your kart, spend your coins on acceleration and top speed first. These are what can give you the edge in harder challenges. I've found focusing on these two boosts to allow you to level up and advance faster as opposed to upgrading evenly and possibly losing challenges due to faster opponents.

6. Don't waste gems on skipping challenges

Angry Birds Go!: Top 10 tips, tricks, and cheats!

Unless you absolutely can't beat a specific challenge, don't waste your gems on skipping it. Typically it costs you at least 10 gems and it's just not worth it. Try a few more times or put the game down and come back to it later. Gems are super hard to come by so use them sparingly and only when you have to.

7. Don't energize birds using gems, change the time instead!

Angry Birds Go!: Top 10 tips, tricks, and cheats!

Each time your bird runs out of energy you'll need to wait for 20 minutes to use it again. There's a known glitch though that'll let you trick the system. Just put your iPhone or iPad in Airplane mode and then change the time ahead at least an hour. Your bird should then be ready to go when you hop back in the game.

8. Use Facebook for double rewards
