I downloaded Angry Birds onto my phone, but I now actually can't find it anywhere. Does it go into a certain folder?

you just downloaded the APK? if you did , you need to open it to install it... or try to install it from android market – Power-Inside Jun 5 '11 at 10:34
how did you download the app? Are you using the Android Market, through 3rd party market, through through GetJar (or other 3rd party providers), or through desktop browser? – Lie Ryan Jun 5 '11 at 13:02
Have you looked at your app drawer? – Matthew Read Jun 5 '11 at 13:49

It may have been downloaded, but has it been installed?

Open up the Market app and click "My Apps". If it isn't listed there - i suggest you reinstall it.

Also, is your device capable of running it?

Better to look at Settings -> Applications -> Manage applications. – Matthew Read Jun 5 '11 at 13:49
You're right. Assumed it was obtained via Google Market. – Sparx Jun 5 '11 at 16:35
