INTRODUCING PR8, OUR MOBILE APP
Stay connected with your fellow players using the new Gamer Launch communication app PR8 (Prate)!
WHAT DOES PR8APP DO?
PR8 sounds pretty amazing, right?
Well, check it out for yourself. If you have an Android 4.0, or iOS smartphone you can download the app below.
Q. PR8 Chat sounds cool, but I'm on a limited data plan, can I use it?
A. PR8 Chat provides free, voice communications using only the minutes on your phone. If you have unlimited minutes and long distance plan then the service is completely free! After surveying our users we found that the vast majority had unlmited plans with unlimited long distance. PR8 Chat uses a Patent Pending technology to connect you to your gaming community via normal voice calls. If you go over your minute allotment on your phone then rates may apply. Consult your phone plan to be sure.
Q. How do I make a PR8 voice call?
A. Click the Headphone tab of the PR8 app, then click on the Phone icon for the community you want to connect to.
Q. What mobile devices are supported?
A. Android 4.0 and iOS. In addition, landline support for PR8 Chat will be made available.
Q. Do I have to give out an address or connection info?
A. PR8 Chat via the PR8 App is completely zero config. Each member of your site can connect at any time and are automatically added to the permissions.
Q. What do you mean by notifications?
A. The opening screen of PR8 provides a notification stream to keep you up to date with your gaming communities. You will recieve PM notifications, post reply notifications, new member notifications and much more as we expand the functionality.
Q. Can I configure which notifications I receive?
A. You can configure the notifications on the Notifications tab of the Communications area of your Gamer Launch site profile. You can set the priority level of each message type.
Q. Can I configure how I am notified?
