BTW, Flappy's developer just announced he will take the game down from stores tomorrow. I don't know the real reason, maybe he just really wants to calm down everything.

Anyway, the guy just started the best marketing campaign he could ever imagine. Got all the media attention. This will bring him more downloads than worldwide feature by Apple.

And Odesk copycats are emerging. Pick your game

Now that it's all over, do you think it was a good idea for Dong to take it down? Some people think it might have been a good business decision.

Actually, this must be his new secretly working monetization strategy now!

I agree on this. Although there were already statements as to why he had to pull it down, I just don't buy it. I feel this is all part of his bigger plan. The ride is not yet over.
