how to sell an iphone with flappy bird

Since eBay is removing the flappy bird auctions, where are people selling their phones? Craigslist isn’t a viable option for me because I don’t trust people there. Have eBay users substituted other keywords for Flappy Birds? I attempted a few different strategies, but eBay deleted my auction. Thanks KS in advance. What are the options now? Another keyword? Another trustworthy website like eBay? Archived post. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast.

There will inevitably be a large number of fraudulent listings and bids on the listings, just like in any eBay gold rush. Kyle Orland, the editor of Ars Gaming, quickly discovered a jumble of finished listings that appeared suspicious and were all sold for several thousand dollars by accounts that had little to no feedback. A similar incident occurred a few weeks ago when a rare Nintendo World Championships NES cartridge was up for auction and nearly $100,000 was bid. Even though the bid was ultimately withheld, the listing inspired imitators to launch their own auctions in an effort to profit from the media attention. Additionally, buyers should be aware that the Apple App Store is overrun with numerous fast-money Flappy Bird clones; while none of them are authentic, it’s not hard to replicate the basic gameplay.

If the widely downloaded but somewhat contentious Flappy Bird game was taken down from Google Play and the Apple App Store over the weekend, many people would have been happy to take advantage of your sadness. Following the game’s removal, thousands of iPhones with prices ranging from the hundreds to the tens of thousands have appeared on eBay, claiming to have the game installed.

Update: According to the LA Times, some of the Flappy Bird phone listings have been canceled by eBay for violating the sites policies. One seller received an e-mail message from eBay stating that “smartphones and tablets must be restored to factory settings” before they can be listed, which of course involves deleting any data and applications stored on the devices.

Android users will find it much simpler and less expensive to play Flappy Bird. If your security settings allow it, you can sideload the game’s APK files from a number of websites onto your phone or tablet. However, exercise caution and only download the game from reliable sources. If you leave the (relatively) secure, virus-scanned Google Play store, you could leave yourself vulnerable to malware and other exploits.


How valuable is a phone with Flappy Bird?

Why did Flappy Bird get banned?

In an interview with Forbes, Nguyen cited the game’s addictive nature for its cancellation, stating: “Flappy Bird was designed to play in a few minutes when you are relaxed. But it happened to become an addictive product. I think it has become a problem. To solve that problem, it’s best to take down Flappy Bird.

What is the secret to Flappy Bird?

Slower is Better Flappy Bird is all about finding the right rhythm, so get used to a slower pace. This is especially true for the critical moment when you pass between pipes and score points. You move upward so quickly in this game that it’s better to aim low and give yourself room to rise.
