The phenomenon Flappy Bird shows no signs of slowing, despite the fact that the original title has been removed from theApp store by its creator Dong Nguyen, whose fame has apparently become too burdensome.
But if Flappy Bird itself has disappeared, the Top of the App Store are now filled with clones imitating the addictive and frustrating game that was the viral success of this beginning of the year. However, that might not last much longer, since Apple and Google are now rejecting games with the word “Flappy” in their titles.
According to Mind Juice Media designer Ken Carpenter, Apple rejected one of its apps called “Flappy Dragon” from the App Store, with reason: “we found that your app name was trying to run another popular app”.
According to the Cupertino company, the application violated the following section of the App Store guidelines: “Applications that contain false, fraudulent or misleading information will be rejected”.
