Dear Reader,

Have you ever played the iPhone game Flappy Bird? If not, you’ve missed your chance. The author of the incredibly popular game pulled it from the iTunes store because he felt the addictive game was ruining people’s lives.

Since then, app stores have been flooded with clones and wannabees. Find out which of the clones are popular and then VOTE for your favorite in our Flappy Bird Clone poll.

Best Flappy Bird Clones

See ya on the Net,

#6. Quote of the Week

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.” ~~ Charles Dickens, “The Tale of Two Cities” ~~ (7 February 1812 – 9 June 1870) English novelist of the Victorian era.
