Got any extra invites? Should we get an invite thread going? I'd love to try it out.

Edit: Hmm... apparently users may not get invites for this. I've signed up, I'll have to watch the devs on G+ too.

Can't really see me walking around with a 10" tablet, but I`ll signup all the same, look like something I might do when very very drunk :p

Thanks


FYI: They have an app for smartphones for now... not tablets.

I understand that but here is an quote from their app store: (in the description section near the bottom of this section)

NOTE: This app is optimized for smartphones, not tablets.


You might not be able to install it which it will tell you that your tablet isn't compatible. You try it.

Ah right, yea I have it installed and it runs, it said compatible from the play store for my tab, I can't remember if I made an account yet though

EDIT - Its asking for an activation code so I need to wait for the invite

Not surprisingly (considering my luck with D3, and various other betas I wanted to get into), I am yet to get an invite. Signed up the day the site went live, and a couple times after that.

Seems like only 1 person in this thread actually got their invite from a quick read of the thread

Got my invite last night.

Installed and took a walk to the shops in the snow. I like the idea, but it's bloody cold outside.

Apparently there are a few portals around Aberdeen (Scotland) but not in my vicinity. I'll need to actually take a walk...but again, it's snowing. Not fun!

Can you play with others?

Yea, I wouldn't be surprised if they were doing it based on location too (higher populated areas).

Looking at the chat logs for Enlightened in a 20km radius, there were 2 other people talking.
My mate got his invite too but we've not met up today.

Got invite today too after waiting for about a month. And meh, **** crashes too much.
Tested it while walking the dog and couldn't do really much. Just collected a few xm and hacked a terminal that the game created for me as there was no portal available near by. And all these two poor missions were done with about 12 crashes. Had to restart the phone a few times too, as I couldn't force close the application and it was stuck in the background with frozen picture (every time you opened the application) and sucking up battery life by communicating to the server and using the GPS.

Will try to skip the tutorial section and give it another go tomorrow. If it will keep crashing, I'll just wait for the final version.

Got in last night. Did the first bit of the tutorial (Collecing XM) however there are no terminals near me, even when it says it will make one. Will have to give it a go tonight.

Just to add a bit of fuel to those awaiting a key. I got mine about a week ago. Not had time to check it out yet tho :(

But I signed up a good while ago, i.e about a month or so at least.
