Flappy Bird flies no more after developer pulls game

Nguyen Ha Dong removes game from Apple and Google stores, claims no legal issues

Popular mobile game Flappy Bird flew a little too close to the sun, and now developer Nguyen Ha Dong has removed the game from the Apple App Store and Google’s Android Play store, citing increased frustrations.

Dong’s game had become the one of the most-downloaded mobile applications on both Apple and Google’s stores, with the game being downloaded more than 50 million times on Android devices. Dong said in an interview that the app was pulling in an average of $50,000 per day in advertising revenue.
