Angry Birds to get cross device game sync features by the summer, new Easter update coming for Angry Birds Seasons.

Rovio Mobile is working on a way to sync game positions in Angry Birds across multiple devices. We don’t know at this stage if this sync will be limited to just iOS devices or across all devices that have access to Angry Birds, including other smartphones, tablets, and the version sold in the Mac App Store. Either way it would be a great help for those of us that play the game on iPhone and iPad but don’t want to repeat levels; or be at different stages of the game.

Rovio Mobile is also planning an Easter update for Angry Birds Seasons. Not much detail but it promises lots of great new stuff in the update!

Facebook for iPhone allows 'liking' comments... sometimes

Facebook has made some backend changes that allow users to 'like' comments from stories in their news feed. This has been a much requested feature from Facebook users and, unfortunately, Facebook has only half-delivered.

As you can see from the screenshots above, comments are only "likeable" when viewing from the news feed. If you access comments from anywhere else, say notifications or a friend's profile page, you cannot 'like' them.

Who's excited about this feature and can't wait for it to be app wide?

Viacom is flexing its muscles once more, this time asking Cablevision to remove all Viacom media content from its Optimum iPad App. A couple of weeks ago, we heard that Time Warner had been asked to remove all content from Viacom from its TW Cable app; which it has now done. That particular tiff is heading to court for a ruling.

Daily tip: how to add contact pics to your address book with Cyntact [jailbreak]

Adding contact pictures to your address book on stock iPhones will only show the contact picture when you actually click the contact. For jailbreakers, there's a nifty little jailbreak app called Cyntact that'll add them inline. Cyntact was actually one of the first apps available for purchase in Cydia.

Unreal 3 Engine powered Dream:scape on its way to iOS

If you love the Epic Unreal 3 powered Infinity Blade as much as I do than you might also be excited to see another gorgeous iOS game, Dream:scape, is on its way to the App Store. Based on the trailer, it has a creepy, almost surrealist vibe that looks really interesting.

The player takes on the persona of a coma patient unlocking his past by exploring the dreamscape of his memories. As the player explores the huge open world, memories are unlocked. These are represented by cut-scenes, featuring audible dialog, and diary entries, which the player reads in-game via a 3-D representation of a leather-bound book. The player must determine which areas to explore so as to find and unlock the story.

Dream:scape has been submitted to Apple and is currently in review so hopefully we'll see it soon. Check out the video after the break and let us know what you think!
