Welcome to the world of Ingress Prime, Agent. The fate of this universe, and perhaps others, depends on you. The discovery of Exotic Matter (XM), a resource of unknown origin, has sparked a covert struggle between two Factions. Cutting-edge XM technologies have completely transformed the Ingress Scanner, and it is now waiting for you to join this battle.

Explore the world around you and interact with places of cultural significance—such as public art installations, landmarks, and monuments—to collect valuable resources using your Ingress Scanner.

Fight for the Faction you believe in. Harness the power of XM to evolve mankind and discover our true destiny with The Enlightened, or protect humanity from a hostile takeover of the mind with The Resistance.

Dominate territories by linking Portals and creating Control Fields to achieve victory for your Faction.

Strategize and communicate with fellow Agents in your neighborhood and around the world.

Agents must be over 13 years old (for residents outside of the European Economic Area); or over 16 years old or such age needed to consent to the processing of personal data in the Agent's country of residence (for residents of the European Economic Area). Unfortunately, no children may play Ingress.

Was awesome... was

Before the Prime update, the game was exhilarating, I had a sense of excitement every time I played. The interface was easy to use and the general appearance was good and made the game look exciting, it’s now hard to see what I’m doing when I play. The new wire frame appearance in Prime isn’t tasteful. A lot of friends who used to play have also quit for similar reasons. I consider Prime a bad move overall. I miss the older version, the new setup is also confusing. I don’t feel like an Agent anymore, it feels like a low budget game now instead of something high tech and cool.

Not to mention all the bugs, and the toll it puts on your phone to play now.

Prime looks slick but has loads of bugs

Ok so I’ve had Prime installed on my iPhone XS and so far:

UI navigation randomly stops working forcing you to close and restart.

Browsing your stats screen and then expanding the completed mission badges causes the close button to shift off screen.

Player indicator doesn’t recenter itself if you tap on a portal while moving and then try to select another portal.

XM meter randomly disappears.

Alerts feed randomly disappears or redraws in the middle of the screen.

Player name at the top of the screen randomly disappears.

Percentage indicator bar that displays when trying a focused attack is far too big and obtrusive.

This sort of stuff should have been picked up and squashed during beta testing....

If you needed a reason to quit Ingress, the Ingress Prime upgrade is for you

This upgrade has ruined the gameplay of a great game. It is slower than the old version and has a clunky, non-intuitive user interface. For example it has replaced the long-press functionality with multiple short presses. Incredibly it also uses more battery power than the old version. When an app makes your iPhone get hot you know it is poorly designed. It is inconceivable how a so-called upgrade could get this so wrong.
