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.
