Flappy Bird Will Be No More From Tomorrow
Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen has announced in a series of tweets (that’s on Twitter, not through use of bird noises) that he will be removing the game from the iOS App Store and Google Play stores at around 5pm on Sunday.
That’s right, Flappy Bird haters will get their wish as the little guy will be no more.
I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore.

Nguyen says the reasons aren’t because of legal issues and he has no intentions to sell the game on. Still, it’s a very strange decision as the game was due to launch on Windows Phone soon and is reportedly earning him $50,000 in ad revenue per day.
Flappy Bird is currently, but not for long, available for free on iOS and Android devices.
