Apple and Google are fighting ‘Flappy Bird’ clones

In the wake of Flappy Birds demise, an army of clones has risen up to take its place — but Apple and Google may now be preventing that from happening. Currently when you search flappy in Google Play or the App Store, youll see game like Flappy Fish, Flappy Pig, or Splashy Fish pop up. However, several developers are reporting that both Apple and Google have since clamped down on obvious clones, disallowing games that are clearly built to cash in on Flappy Birds sudden burst of popularity. On Friday, Ken Carpenter, from studio Mind Juice Media, tweeted that his game Flappy Dragon was rejected by Apple, with the company telling him we found your app name attempts to leverage a popular app. After that initial tweet, several developers responded saying that they had seen or received similar responses from both Apple and Google.
