There are actually 3 different ways to Stop Facebook Game Invites.  It really doesn't take long and could stop these people from blowing a fuse every time someone invites them to the same game.

When is Ingress coming to iOS ?

By |2017-02-08T01:19:02+01:00February 2nd, 2014|Categories: Games, Mobile apps|

What is Ingress Ingress is an  MMOARG (massively multiplayer online alternate reality game) created by Niantic labs - which is a start up within Google.  The concept of the game is supposed to be similar to games such as World of Warcraft, but I think that's just a MMO reference rather than features. SO when is Ingress coming to iOS ? The game has been available on Google Play for android users  just over a year with a suggested 1 million users and it only came out of Beta in November.  I am dying to see the game play rather that just read about it or watch videos but I am still waiting for Ingress to come out on iPhone. Some people are calling this game a social media network because again of its online multiplayer theme.  The good thing about its that you can chat to people via the game but also people are creating google+ communities to discuss tactics and to get to know each other further.  Not just anybody though, there are two teams or frations on Ingress -  The [...]
