The initial purchase will come with a free app once they are released into the the wild. Since we want to support charity through app sales, we will be charging for them, but do not have pricing finalized. We are thinking in the 3-5 dollar range with a healthy chunk of that going towards charity.
This is up to you. To encourage the regifting culture our apps support charity and every regift has a potential to do some good in the world. Most people have multiple gifting occasions in any year, so think weeks, not months. But again, up to you. If you love it, set it free. Others are waiting to see where this goes next!
The first person names The Messenger. This allows us to replace a bird with a new one without your NG family being aware of it. We just link the two serial numbers to the named bird and you are out of hot water. We call this the Phoenix Function. Accidents happen.
