The mysterious developer of the world's most popular free app, who drew global attention this past weekend with his sudden decision to remove it, tells Forbes that Flappy Bird is dead. Permanently.

This will go down as one of the craziest stories in what I reluctantly call "technology" of all time.

Flappy Bird will Flap On

I have the APK if anybody wants it...

My best score so far is 7. The butthurt from the game industry calling it a "stupid game" or "derivative" shows they can't see the wood for the trees. No wonder they're spending millions to make over-produced games that suck. All they see is surface details, but the core of this simple game is actually a stroke of genius (none of the clones I've played get it quite right).
