Say Good Bye to Flappy Bird

I have mixed feelings about this. I recently downloaded Flappy Bird and made a high score of 21. Now the developer of Flappy Bird Dong Nguyen says “that he cannot take this anymore”. I guess the hype of the game got to him.  He will be removing the game in 20 hours, at noon est.

Flappy Bird has been a very successful game in both the Google Play Store and iOS App Store. Earlier this week it was announced that the developer was making over $50,000 per day just from Ads. That’s a lot considering the simplicity of the game.

Due to the popularity and the spot light shed on Nguyen, he no longer likes the game, in fact he hates it. He goes on about his reasons why he is removing the game on his twitter which can be viewed here.

What are you’re thoughts on the games removal? Leave your comments in the box down below!

Instagram Introduces Photo and Video Sharing

During a press event held in New York,  Instagram announced a new sharing feature called Instagram Direct. This will allow users to share images and videos to other users privately. I just received the update and I must say, I am pretty impressed with this new feature.

In this very awesome video that I found on 9to5mac, Instagram showcase’s its new feature and how simple you can send direct photo or video privately to anyone you please.

Instagram Reveals Ads

Well it was going to happen sooner or later. Instagram has finally released what their Instagram Ads will look like.

Last month the company announced Sponsored Photos and Sponsored Videos would begin appearing in people’s feeds. The photo was released on their facebook today. It shows a man sitting at a table drinking coffee with an Instagram logo on what seems to be a Macbook. The sponsored icon above the photo is where you can go to get more information on the advertisement. Ads will start rolling out onto peoples feeds in the coming weeks.

Here is a more detailed example of what Instagram Ads will look like.
