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

what is the point of the flappy bird, - There is similar game like Flappy bird - names Clumsy Bird - i think ppl could download it too :)
i would rather buying new phone instead of spend lot of money for 2nd phone with Flappy Bird :)

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

Agreed. The game was basically a rip off of super Mario. From what I had read on the net the creator was supposedly making a revenue of 50k a month alone with all the ads that were in the game, now why would you take down a game "if you are" making that much, unless your about to get sued

It only increases the value in the eyes of the beholder and/or the poor schmucks who think a silly game such as "Flappy Bird" is worth the over-inflated price of a used phone.

I never blame the seller for trying; I blame the buyer for their stupidity.

It was 50k a day he was making. Absolutely ridiculous I know.

I have flappy bird installed on my slate black 32 Gb 5th gen iPod touch running iOS 7.1 beta 5... Apple doesn't sell the 5th gen iPod touch in slate black anymore and it's running the iOS 7.1 beta... Based on the prices I've seen my device should be in the top 5 for most money :p

But seriously, these eBay listings need to stop.

I wouldn't want to have a phone with my Apple account on it in someone else's hands.

If you bought Flappy Bird, you can put it on any device tied to your Apple ID, from Purchased Apps.

Should have created an account just to buy it, then use that account on devices to sell. :p

True. So what are your ideas for me clearing my info without deleting the game? Lol!

Easy. Keep the app in iTunes on your computer, restore it and sync the app. Profit! Kind of sad that people are actually buying these...

Great idea but yes it is sad! Only way I'll sell my iPhone is to get a 64gb and I'm hesitant about that because I haven't had any problems with this phone whatsoever.
