How To Download and Install Flappy Bird on Your Android Device

If you were paying attention to the internet at all last week, undoubtedly you heard about the iOS and Android game Flappy Bird. The game became an overnight success, racking up over $50,000 a day. Sadly, the game’s developer pulled the game from both Apple and Google’s app stores, leaving addicted players around the world without their fix. While getting the game on an iOS device now is next to impossible, Android users can still enjoy the game by downloading and installing it manually.

Don’t have Flappy Bird installed on your device but want to try it out, or need to re-install? No problem! Just follow our guide below and you’ll be flapping in no time!

Basically, what we are going to do is download the game and install it on our Android device. Android apps and games carry the filename .APK, and can be installed without the help of the Google Play Store.

Step 1: Download the Flappy Bird .APK

Download the .APK from one of the links below. Put the file in a safe place on your PC, as we will be transferring it to your Android. Needless to say, the game is being downloaded like hotcakes so I’ve included a few links to the .APK  just in case one of the links isn’t working.

Flappy Birds (Google Drive)

Flappy Birds (Filecloud)

Step 2: Transfer .APK to Android Device

Make sure your Android device is connected to your PC and transfer the .APK to your device’s internal memory or external SD storage.

Step 3: Android Settings

If you’ve manually installed apps or games on your Android device before, you can safely skip this step. 

By default, the option to manually install apps on Android devices is disabled. In order to manually install apps, we need to enable the installation of unknown apps or .APKs on your device.

  • Android 2.3 (and below) – Go to Settings » Application » check ‘Unknown Sources’ box.
  • Android 4.0 (and above) – Go to Settings » Security and check ‘Unknown Sources’ box.

Step 4: Install Flappy Birds .APK

For this step you’ll need a file explorer app which will install the .APK. If you don’t have one yet, download File Manager here. There are a number of file manager apps for Android, and all do pretty much the same thing. Open up your file manager app and locate the Flappy Bird .APK.
Next, click on the file and the File Manager will ask you if you want to install the program. Click yes, and Flappy Birds will begin installation. Follow all on screen instructions.
That’s it! Flappy Birds is now installed on your Android device. Now get to Flappin!
Of course, there are a ton of Flappy Bird clones out there that are funny to say the least. Check out Happy Poo Flap for Android! There’s also an Osama themed clone, Flappy Osama! The same mechanics of Flappy Bird, starring poo or Osama. How could you resist?

      I am among the few who have the original APK file so that it is not advisable to say that this or that is “original”, miraculously installation file remained on teblet and why we have it.

    Hi. Will people know whether this is the original version. Phones are selling like hotcakes for a higher value with flappy birds and I’m just wondering would a buyer be able to check if it has been downloaded from Google Play or not. Thanks

    I just followed the link and downloaded it to my galaxy s4. I didn’t even use a computer. Just go to settings and allow unknown sources. You’re package installer will take it from there.
