Flap no more: Google, Apple rejecting flappy-branded games
Flappy Bird knock-offs proliferated almost as soon as Flappy Bird became a (blessedly short-lived) phenomenon, and it seems that Apple and Google are both fighting back. The companies have started rejecting submissions with the word “flappy” in their names, reports TechCrunch, citing tweets from developers.
Games are being rejected from the Apple store with the company saying that they’re attempting to “leverage a popular app.” Google, more obtusely, is rejecting flappy applications from the Play Store as “spam.”
