Over a 24-hour period on Wednesday, there were approximately 293 new iOS games uploaded to the App Store. Out of this slew of 293 games, 95 of them were Flappy Bird clones, or at least inspired by the original Flappy Bird game.




Starting a couple of weeks ago, Apple began rejecting some of the Flappy Bird clones, but it looks like the company has all but given up trying to filter out the Flappy Bird clones. Developers are trying to capitalize on Dong Nguyen's success with the original Flappy Bird, as it saw him earning $50,000 per day.
