14-Year-Old Whiz Kid Knocks Angry Birds Off Its Roost

The number one free download on the App Store is no longer Angry Birds, thanks to a 14-year-old kid.

While many 14-year-olds are busy cursing at adults in online multiplayer games of Call of Duty: Black Ops, Robert Nay toils away at game development. The 8th grader not only learned how to program his own iPhone game, but actually released it to hugely successful results.

Nay’s Bubble Ball has risen to the very top spot in the list of free downloads on the iOS App Store, unseating longtime champion Angry Birds. Bubble Ball was released on December 29, 2010, and has already been downloaded more than 2 million times. It’s also available on the Android marketplace, but is much more popular on the App Store.
