There have been quite a few theories on why Flappy Bird has been removed from the App Store but now Dong Nguyen, the developer of the game, has finally revealed the real reason why Flappy Bird has been taken off from the App Store and Google Play Store. According to Nguyen, Flappy Bird was developed to help people relax in their free time, but it turned out to be very addictive! And this is the reason why he had to take it off from the App Store. He also added that if any other game of his becomes as addictive as Flappy Bird, he would take it off from the App Store and Google Store as well.
Nguyen denied that receiving any threats from Nintendo is the reason he remove flappy bird and he says his life was not as comfortable as before and that he couldn’t even sleep because of 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.

Ever since Flappy Bird gained popularity because of its awfulness, there have been a number of clones littering the App Store. One of them is ‘Ironpants’.
Ironpants is almost the same as Flappy Bird with just two minor changes. The first difference in Ironpants is that you need to keep the finger pressed against the screen to get the superhero fly higher, unlike Flappy Bird in which tapping the screen takes the bird higher. Secondly, the superhero in Ironpants moves faster than the bird in Flappy Bird, making it difficult to control.
To be perfectly clear: If Flappy Bird were still on the App Store, I’d probably not recommend checking out Ironpants because it is indeed the inferior product. However, with Flappy Bird’s creator promising to never re-publish the game after he removed it from the App Store, it’s the only halfway decent alternative currently available.
As you may know, Flappy bird has been removed from Apple store. If you search Flappy Bird on App Store, it no longer shows up in search, neither on developer’s app listing, nor Top Free games. The direct link download link on iTUnes store is unavailable for download.
