    Default Having 'Flappy Birds' installed on the iPhone increases the value of it?

    I'm hearing that If you have floppy birds on your iphone your phone is worth more than retail price ??? Is this true

    Why did the value go up so much over a game that isn't in the App Store anymore ? And is people really paying more now?

    The game sucks but it's "trending" so it's the thing now. 😒

    Yea I figured it was shady $10,000 !!!! Who has that type of money for a phone

    There's nothing really shady about asking for more money because it has an app installed. Just shady to list it as restored to new if it really isn't.

    Believe me, people out there are willing to pay $10,000 for anything, let alone an iPhone.

    Download it from your purchased apps on iTunes. I sold my busted iPod Touch 4th gen for around $500 with flappy bird on it.

    First off the game was free it was listed in the App Store since I believe March of last year the game play is childish and difficult the Dev claims he coded it in 3 days and now it's a commodity

    People just want what they don't or can't have like a tickle me Elmo and they mortgage the house to say they have it

    It's one of the Human Faults we all deal with at one time or another

    Ok back to the game 😉

    Like how suddenly a box of Twinkies was exchangeable in the weight of gold just because they were no longer easily accessible. People want what they can't have, it's the nature of the beast right?

    This should apply to Excedrin PM since it has been off the market for over a year.

    They took it off quietly. The Twinkie and Flappy Bird fiasco was blown entirely out of proportion...
