Goodbye, ‘Flappy Bird’ — Developer Plans to Pull Game From App Store

Flappy Bird

‘Flappy Bird’ (or as I call it:  ‘Crappy Bird’ — because it frustrates the crap out of me), will be a goner tomorrow. (2/9) The app’s maker, Dong Nguyen, tweeted on Saturday that he plans to pull the ridiculously popular app off the market — presumably from both the iOS app store and Google Play.

"I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore."

The app is reported to pull in a whopping $50,000 per day from advertising revenue. Nguyen offered no real explanation for the decision, saying only, “I cannot take this anymore.” We can only assume that he’s referring to the media storm that has ensued since Flappy Bird’s sudden surge in popularity over the past few weeks.

If you haven’t yet downloaded the most-maddening game ever created, do it right away, before its creator pulls the plug. You’ll be frustrated in no time!

By the way, check out the high score in the photo above. Pretty impressive, right? Yeah, it’s my son’s, not mine.
