Shoot Flappy Birds out of Your Life with FlapShot

I, for one, am grateful that Flappy Bird can no longer be obtained through traditional channels. No longer do I have the social challenge of trying to achieve a higher score than friends, and no longer do I have an excuse to procrastinate and put aside all responsibilities in order to continuously tap a screen without getting out of bed for days on end. In fact, considering all the time and effort wasted thanks to Flappy Bird, I’m thinking sweet, sweet revenge is in order.

With the above in mind, XDA Recognized Developer EatHeat developed FlapShot, the perfect game to unleash all your angst against Flappy Bird. The game bases itself on augmented reality, using your rear-facing camera as the setting of your shooting rampage. When the game starts, Flappy Birds infest your screen (much like how they infested your life), and you must accumulate as many points as possible in the time frame by aiming the crosshair at Flappy Birds and shooting them down by tapping the screen. Different modes are available, with different objectives and types of Flappy Birds, and they can only be unlocked by completing the previous modes. There are also a variety of loot that can be collected as you go about shooting Flappy Birds out of the sky, and they increase your final score to various extents.

FlapShot is compatible with any device running Android 2.3 and newer, and can be downloaded for free. So if you’re suffering symptoms of Flappy Bird withdrawal, such as seeing Flappy Birds everywhere, wherever you go, head over to the application thread and start shooting them down.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
