Ingress transforms the real world into the landscape for a global game of mystery, intrigue, and competition.
Our future is at stake. You must choose a side.
A mysterious energy has been unearthed by a team of scientists in Europe. The origin and purpose of this force is unknown, but some researchers believe it is influencing the way we think. We must control it or it will control us.
“The Enlightened” seek to embrace the power that this energy may bestow upon us. “The Resistance” struggle to defend, and protect what’s left of our humanity.
Install Ingress and transform your world.
The World is the Game
Move through the real world using your iOS device and the Ingress app to discover and tap sources of this mysterious energy. Acquire objects to aid in your quest, deploy tech to capture territory, and ally with other players to advance the cause of the Enlightened or the Resistance.
The struggle is being played out globally. Track the progress of players around the world, plan your next steps, and communicate with others using an Intelligence map.
The struggle to save the planet spans the entire world. Groups of people acting together can be more effective than individuals acting alone. Cooperation across neighborhoods, cities, and countries will be needed to achieve the ultimate victory.

What's New in Version 1.81.1
I absolutely love this game! I started playing about three months ago and it's gone under some revisions since then. Unfortunately every revision has resulted in slower response time, glitchy behavior, resulting in having to shut down the app, switching back-and-forth between airplane mode and not, or eventually you have to completely delete the app and reinstall it. That doesn't always fix the problem however! If you don't have LTE connection, forget about having decent response time. After each revision they have made the pictures look prettier but it keeps getting slower and slower and slower. Normally when you're viewing the map you either see portals and no streets or streets and no portals. Linking takes forever! You may as well book 5 minutes of your time to try to link any portals to another portal. Please make this game more usable! Go back to what it started with please!
Reskin of Shadow Cities
This is essentially just a copy of another game, called Shadow Cities, which I played for a while but then later was removed from the App Store due to not being updated. I personally very much preferred SC however, as it allowed you to move short distances just by clicking on the map. Also, the location system in this one constantly jitters for no apparent reason. I haven't gotten far enough to see if there's the same inclusion of "magic spells" drawn on the screen for fighting off other players (if you find any) but I wouldn't be surprised if there is.
Frustrating Map View
The navigation is horrible. 99% of the time it looks like you're moving backwards. The map view never faces North when it should. I find myself spinning the map 180 degrees with two fingers way too often. The process of recharging a portal under attack is insanely tedious. It takes about 21 clicks just to find your portal, recharge once, refill XM reserves, and recharge again. Why must you hide items required to defend your portals deep within submenus. They must be readily accessible from the main view screen. I also love when all the portals are missing on the map!
