Welcome Everything collectors!
We're starting the beta test for our new Everything mobile app. Now you can flip your cards on your phone (or tablet) while sipping your morning coffee!
If you want to participate in the beta test, you'll need to have an Android phone or tablet, running Android 2.4 (Gingerbread) or newer. The Everything mobile app will also be release for iPhone and iPad, but Apple makes it extremely difficult to beta test on their platform, so we're doing our public beta test on Android only.
To participate in the test, join this group, and then click on this link to become a beta tester:https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.threerings.everything
This page will allow you to become a tester and also link you to the Google Play store page for the Everything Game.
Once you've got the game installed on your phone or tablet, you can play just like you do via the Facebook app. It uses your same Facebook account to link you to your collection, so you can play either via the web or your mobile device.
A few things to beware of (this is a beta!):
- you probably won't be able to buy coins via the mobile app yet (you may notice that the prices are a lot lower on the mobile app, we'll be lowering the prices on the Facebook app as well once the mobile app launches); I need to enable some things to make purchases work, and I'm not sure if Google allows beta apps to buy in-app purchases
- sometimes the text overflows on the back of cards; I'll be trying to detect that and shrink it to fit
There's more polishing I'd like to do (fancy animations and such), but everything should be working smoothly enough for you to enjoy the mobile experience on a regular basis.
Please send feedback by posting to this Google Group. I look forward to hearing what you think!
