Flappy Envy: Google & Apple Block Games With Flappy Titles
By Andrew Reichenberg Posted in News, Science on February 18, 2014

Apple and Google have reportedly begun cracking down on apps that appear to be trying to capitalize on the “Flappy Bird” phenomenon.

Google and Apple are starting to block apps with the word “Flappy” in their titles, possibly due to recent popularity of now discontinued Flappy Bird.

Shortly after the game’s developer Dong Nguyen removed the popular game from app stores on February 9, clones of the popular game began appearing in the app stores.

According to Tech Crunch, those app stores have started rejecting games with “flappy” in the title that appear to be clones of the original game.
