Angry Birds' Level-Cheating "Mighty Eagle" Character Now Available in iPad App

After months of roosting on the Symbian version of Angry Birds, the Mighty Eagle character has flown onto the HD iPad app—but it'll cost you. That'll be 99 cents please, gamer.

The 1.5 update also brings along 15 new levels, and Game Center support. [iTunes via Tipb via 148Apps]

UPDATE: Thanks to commenter Mipakr, who clarified the payment terms for the Mighty Eagle. According to Rovio Mobile, via AngryBirdsNest.com, ""The Eagle is NOT one use only, but it ‘recharges' for a time before it can be used to skip a level again. However, the Eagle can be used repeatedly in any level you've already managed to unlock."
