"Flappy Bird" App Grounded by Creator

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2014-02_49e8bf1e90.jpgpressureUA/Thinkstock (NEW YORK) -- Flappy Bird, the enormously addictive game that has been downloaded millions of times, was pulled from app stores on Sunday after its creator said it had ruined his “simple life.” The game no longer appears in search on Google Play and in Apple’s App Store, where it topped the free app charts last week. Creator Dong Nguyen, who is based in Hanoi, Vietnam, tweeted a warning on Saturday that Flappy Bird would soon be grounded.

 

 

 

 

During an interview with The Verge last week, Nguyen said Flappy Bird was raking in $50,000 a day in revenue from in-app advertisements.

According to his Twitter account, it seems Nguyen had no idea his game would be a soaring success.
