Craigslist: Not Just For Serial Kilers


That's right, this app is still newsworthy!

If people selling their phones with Flappy Bird installed isn't enough, then one man is actually renting his phone out to addicts! There is literally a black market for Flappy Bird now! American Jack Nelson was initially trying to sell his phone on eBay, but since the phone still had all his data, contacts and most importantly, Flappy Bird installed, eBay took his phone down, as they have been doing for the past couple of days. Nelson went from the most trustworthy community-selling site, to the the most untrustworthy....

Craigslist!

Nelson is renting out his phone to Fladdicts (That's what I call 'em!) for $1 a minute, an extortionate that everyone will probably pay anyway. He said it's a cheaper alternative to buying a phone with the app pre-installed, but to be honest, it would cost $60 just to play it for an hour, without even being able to use the phone. When people pay, he will invite them to his house (Hugely creepy.), or Starbucks (Hugely Expensive) in Washington, so I'll be interested to hear about people coming all the way from Hawaii to play it, which I should imagine will probably happen!

What do you guys think? Will this try before you buy method work for Jack? Or will Fladdicts actually get some common sense and not stand for it? Tell us in the comments below!
