People have gone crazy since “Flappy Bird” was taken off the app store last week. There were a lot of rumors that death threats were made to the creator of the app for pulling the plug on the popular game. It’s fair to say that a lot of people got highly addicted to the game and that’s the only reason why he took it down.  

Dong Nguyen, the developer of the app, sat down with Forbes magazine for an exclusive interview. He said “Flappy Bird was designed to play in a few minutes when you are relaxed, but it happened to become an addictive product. I think it has become a problem. To solve that problem, it’s best to take down Flappy Bird. It’s gone forever.” 

It’s been estimated that Nguyen was close to making up to $50,000 a day in ad space from the app and he STILL TOOK IT DOWN! Wow! Read more from the interview from Forbes by clicking here.
