Hey TTG, a lot of people still don't know why flappy bird was taken down since it was a very addicting game but also frustrating!
Heres the reason why:

So, in an exclusive interview with Forbes, Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen has revealed the real reason he removed the extremely popular app from the App Store and the Google Play Store. According to Nguyen, the games addictiveness is what convinced him to remove it, and the app is not coming back. Flappy Bird was designed to play in a few minutes when you are relaxed, the developer said But it happened to become an addictive product. I think it has become a problem. To solve that problem, its best to take down Flappy Bird. Its gone forever. He will not hesitate to also pull them from stores.

In addition to guilt related to Flappy Birds addictiveness, Nguyen says his life was not as comfortable as I was before, and that he couldnt sleep because of the app. Thus, removing the app isnt a mistake according to him, as he has thought it through." Recent reports revealed that Nguyen has received death threats for pulling the app.

The app developer would not confirm how much money he made with Flappy Bird, although some estimates say he may have collected as much as $50,000 per day from ads the app was available as a free download and said he would continue to develop games.

Flappy Bird can still be played on the devices its installed on, and a web-based clone and a Pebble app version are also available to users. In fact, hardcore fans can even buy devices with Flappy Bird pre-installed from eBay, although they may be more expensive than youd think.

All of this is actually true, if you have ever played Flappy Bird before, you would know how it feels and how frustrating it could be. The first try we would play wouldn't feel bad and when we kept going and going, you know how it felt lol and thats the reason why it got taken down forever but you could still play it, if it has been downloaded on your phone before.

Motto: est. 2009
Although it was very addicting and people loved the game, it was "too" addicting.

I think it was right of him to remove it from, even though if he kept it up he could of made millions he decided to not only think of himself but others.
