It’s Over: Flappy Bird Is No Longer in the App Store


Yesterday the story of the day was Flappy Bird was set to be removed from the App Store today by its developer, who stated the game was ruining his “simple life”. As of this morning the game is no longer available for download (via MacRumors).

Flappy Birds gained worldwide success and had accumulated well over 50 million iOS and Android downloads, earning the developer over $50,000 per day. The developer had previously stated he wanted his privacy back after the media had bombarded him with interview requests.

The game can’t be found in the Canadian App Store but if you still have it, the game is still playable.

    Oh no, I’m making $50,000 a day from an app I released back in May. Too much publicity. Boo hoo.

  • Mario wants his pipes back…

    What’s the app?

  • Lol. Give him a break it’s hard being rich!

    The question is why he wants to protect his privacy that much?! I would just ignore the press. I mean, how hard can that be?!

    In my opinion he is hiding something. Any ideas what?

    Exactly. Talk about being super fragile. If anything, that $50K a day could of been donated to a charity if he didn’t care about the money.

  • That was a rumour but Nintendo denies it…after the fact the game was conveniently “removed”.

    He’s an EIA. Ton’s of them can be found on the SFU campus.
