“Flappy Bird” To Be Removed From App Store [UPDATED: Gone]

Currently sitting at #1 in the Top FREE iOS Chart, Dong Nguyen’s Flappy Bird is receiving a bump to version 1.2 – this weekend.

Complete with a brand-new user interface, and a basket of new birds to choose from, the update arrives as the game’s second since its initial App Store debut back in May, and features both an improved frame rate and a selection of welcomed bug fixes.

UPDATE: To Be Removed

As reported by our friends at MacRumors – it appears that, despite Flappy Bird‘s overwhelming success, Nguyen has announced that he will be removing the game from the iTunes App Store, tomorrow (Sunday, February 9).

Publishing a tweet on Twitter, which has already garnered over 44,000 re-tweets, the developer explained he “cannot take [this] anymore” (“this” supposedly relating to the mass-attention the game has received in the short time it’s been available on the App Store).

Whether Nguyen will go through with removing Flappy Bird from the App Store, is unclear. Success only comes round so often, and ‘Flappy Bird’ has certainly had its fair share of it.

Just in case, we’d suggest you grab it quick!

UPDATE: And … It’s Gone

Despite the app still appearing in the iTunes Charts (for the foreseeable future), Flappy Bird is no longer available for download on the store. Looks like Nguyen was serious. Then again, success isn’t for everyone.

Interesting to note, Flappy Bird was reportedly making $50,000 per day in advertising revenue at one point, according to The Verge.
