    Do you have 50K meaning 50,000 downloads as opposed to the 50 Million downloads!! Either one I could deal with...

    So I'm looking around on eBay and people are selling their iPhones that have flappy birds installed for up to $5000. Very curious to see if anyone will actually purchase them.

    I've been seeing them in Craigslist in my area as well. Some are selling them on Android too. It's ridiculous.

    My thing is, don't you have to be logged in to the App Store with Apple I.D to even have the game downloaded? So people are basically selling their phones with their accounts still attached to them. At least that's how I see it, lol.

    Recap he pulled it for fear of it becoming an addiction oh well

    Believe it or not, some people aren't seeking fortune and fame. In certain places around the world, becoming wealthy and famous can be detrimental to one's health because it breeds hope to others looking for a way out of poverty and the powers that be might find that threatening. Personally, I do believe the developer when he says that the attention has ruined his quiet & simple life, but I DO NOT believe him when he says that he pulled the app because it has become addicting to those who play it. Still, I respect his choice to pull the app from the App Store.

    I think they meant $50k a day. The ads still show up in the app so I think he is still making the money. It was just a stunt to make people get the app.

    You can download it and then remove the Apple ID from the device. If you buy an Android device with that game on it for that much you are stupid. You can just get the apk file and save yourself the couple thousand bucks.
