Doug Nguyen, the creator of Flappy Bird pulled out of the game stakes by choosing — for reasons not known and difficult to speculate about — to have his invention yanked yesterday from both the Google Play Store and the iTunes App Store.
Doug Nguyen has made the following statements: “I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore.” And, “It is not anything related to legal issues. I just cannot keep it anymore.” Not much of an explanation, considering that the app was reported to have been bringing in advertising revenue to the tune of $50,000 per day.
