The Flappy Bird Saga comes to an end. This game took the world by storm. Becoming one of the most popular apps in the world. This game is frustrating, annoying and intolerable. Made us angry, Made us want to break our phones, Made some people cry but it was VERY ADDICTING. But as of today, Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen has removed the game from the app stores – for good.
Flappy Bird was released last May, the app has been downloaded 50 million times, with nearly 50,000 reviews on the app store. The app also brings in about $50,000 a day from in-app advertising revenue. So why would they take it down? What could possibly drive Nguyen to remove the app? He simply said, “I cannot take this anymore.”
I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore.

I guess $50,000 a day was a bit too much for Dong Nguyen to handle. If you have downloaded the app already then you have nothing to fear. The game will run for you like it always has. On the other hand, if you haven’t downloaded the game yet or you deleted it then you’re out of luck.
