Leaving Apple & Google: /e/ first beta, 1000 test accounts (!), new community forums, new reward…

First beta etc.

As announced previously, the first MVP beta of /e/ is now available for download. It can be installed on about 20 devices already (and counting).
Next big steps now are going to add more devices, add our app store installer, and fix several bugs. Then we will enter a development cycle that will lead us to the first /e/ V1.0.
As you know, online services (mail, drive, search, …) are an important piece of the /e/ project. We have started to open a first batch of 100 test accounts (limited to 50MB storage), and then a second and then a third… Today we’ve sent a 1000th test account invitation link!
In order to welcome better the growing community of /e/ supporters and contributors, we have opened a warm and safe place that offers a great repository of various information, as well as discussion threads on various /e/-related topics.

New reward available!

In order to please people who are demanding more than 50MB for their /e/ accounts, we have created a new “reward that is providing 5GB drive storage for 1 year.
Yes it’s still crowdfunding as we have not started to sell anything yet, so by choosing your “/e/ Early adopter” reward you:
  1. get your /e/ identity (@e.email email+drive+calendar…) for 1 year
  2. will receive some /e/ stickers
  3. support the project!
Get you “/e/ Early Adopter” reward now! Please send us your existing /e/ test account email address along with your order!

Support /e/!

YES, we still need your support to change the world and become the 3rd smartphone OS!
In one word: contribute as a developer, lend some servers on Internet, spread the word about /e/ in Internet forums, social media, email, retweet our posts with #/e/ hashtag…
