I just received an email from my host explaining that a complaint has been received from Google.

Alex received a similar email and they deleted his git hub repository. It seems that Google is no longer a champion of open source and would rather stamp it out. 

That being said, we will keep this site up as long as possible. 

Since the git hub repo was shut down, we will need to find a new way to distribute the code. More will come on this later. The ipa and over the air will still be distributed via this website and social media.

I will update this announcement when more information becomes available.

Hello,

We appreciate your enthusiasm in sharing Ingress information. We hope you are enjoying the game. Unfortunately, your iOS port and the methods used to create it are in violation of our Terms of Service. We would greatly appreciate it if you remove all works, and refrain from creating any future works using or accessing Ingress content.
