This Week in Mobile: Flappy Bird Flaps Away, Galaxy S5 & Lovematically

Your weekly knowledge of the mobile industry so you can keep your finger on the pulse. Lovematically, iPhone gossip and other mobile news.


Here at Fueled, a design and development company based in New York and London, we are obsessed with everything that happens in mobile, be it rumors of iPhone hardware, delectable Android updates or new apps we love.

Every Friday, we’d like to help you “top up” your weekly knowledge of the mobile industry so you can keep your finger on the pulse.

Farewell, Flappy Bird


By far the biggest and most bizarre news this week is the story of Flappy Bird. Over the past few months, the addictive indie game has exploded, overwhelming creator Dong Nguyen who removed the app from the Apple App Store this week. It's not entirely clear why Nguyen pulled the plug on his $50,000 a day app. It's a saga. via Gizmodo

Samsung's Next Galaxy


An image supposedly depicting Samsung's new Galaxy S5 was leaked this week. The image of the company's next flagship phone was released by a source with a reliable track record: he posted accurate images of Apple's iPad Air weeks before its launch. The Galaxy S5 is expected to debut on February 24 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. via Business Insider

Android Powered Nokia


The Wall Street Journal reported that sources confirmed that Nokia will launch an Android powered device at the Mobile World Congress this month. Rumors that the Finnish company "has been two-timing Microsoft" have been circulating for months. via TechCrunch

More iPhone Gossip


Apple is rumored to be releasing two phones in September: one with a 4.7 inch screen and another with a 5.5 inch screen. Both phones are said to be thinner and lighter than the current iPhone 5S. The new smartphones will be made out of Sapphire crystal, a scratch resistant material. via Business Insider
