    I signed up for it last week, and havent heard anything back. How are they planning on distributing the app? I understand its beta, but is this limited to only "select, special" people they choose?

    Nobody checks this section? Any idea how often Google opens the site up to certain people? (Would like to know if I got "accepted" or not)

    And HAD also ran a story a few weeks back that suggested Android needed severe improvement for things like Folders which it has always had... The tutorials on googles site are better...

    I'm in (got my invite a week ago) & it is kinda cool. SUPER limited compared to the SDK, of course that is to be expected


    I signed up whenever it was first announced
