'Flappy Bird' Removed from App Store by Developer
As promised, Dong Nguyen, the developer of Flappy Bird, has removed the popular game from the App Store. Flappy Bird has been the number one downloaded free app on Apple's App Store for almost a month. The game was generating $50,000/day in revenue from in-app ads.
Nguyen had previously expressed frustration at the attention he has received since the sudden popularity of his game. In a tweet last week he said "Please give me peace.", and yesterday, he announced that the game would be removed from the App Store today.
Flappy Bird no longer shows up in search, developer's app listing, and Top Free games. The direct link for the game still shows in the App Store at the time of this writing, but is unavailable for download.
If you already have downloaded the game, you can still play it even though its been removed from the App Store.
