Flappy Bird the most popular game among teens was removed last day. Many of the fans were very sad about this decision by the founder to remove it.

Dong Nguyen, the creator of Flappy Bird, told the Wall Street Journal: "It was just too addictive... That was the main negative. So I decided to take it down."

On 9th February, Flappy Bird was removed from both the Google Play store and Apple iTunes App Store. A day before it developer Don Nguyen said the game will be removed. He tweeted: "I am sorry 'Flappy Bird' users, 22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down. I cannot take this anymore... It is not anything related to legal issues. I just cannot keep it any more... I also don't sell 'Flappy Bird', please don't ask... And I still make games."

After the game was removed from the app stores, we were amazed to see some users selling their iPhones, pre-loaded with Flappy Bird game, on eBay for as much as much as $100,000.

A Flappy Bird which created a great impact all has been deleted. The users who have already installed game is enjoying it yet. Flappy Bird just created a revolution on people.
