What is ‘Crash the App’?logo for retina

A collaboration between Trap Door Brewing and the Truece Co-Parenting App to help Truece get out of beta testing.

trap door logoYes, but what is it?

Beer-lovers at Trap Door can download the app and complete checkpoints anytime before or during the night of the Crash the App Party (April 25th), giving our developers a chance to find any bugs in the app and SMASH them! At the Party, the developers will then buy the beer-lovers a delicious Trap Door beer of their choice to say thank you ♥

I like beer! How do I play?

You can play in advance and redeem at the party, or play that night. Here’s what you do:

  1. Download the app at the Android store.
  2. Create your Truece profile.
  1.  Fill out your email on this short form
  2. Within 24 hours, Truece will email you an invitation to join Testflight (don’t be weirded out. It’s just Apple’s beta platform)
  3. Install from Testflight
  4. Create your Truece Profile

I have the app and I’ve created my account…how do I play the game?

Complete the 3 checkpoints – either before or during the 'partay'.

    • Enter in Trap Door’s email address (           ) in the E-mail address field
    • Select “Send Invite”

  2. Open the Truece App
  3. From the drop down menu or home screen select “Expenses”

To redeem your beer,

  1. Look for the Truece corner…there will be a big sign and several people wearing Truece t-shirts, so you can’t miss it.
  2. Find someone wearing a Truece t-shirt, and show them your downloaded app.
  3. The friendly Truece team member will give you a ticket, which you can then go trade for a pint of any beer on tap.
  4. Bask in the warm glow of satisfaction that comes from drinking great beer and knowing you helped two awesome local companies. Win-win!

Wait…I heard there was an extra level I could play for the chance to earn Trap Door swag…how does that work?

Glad you asked! To Level Up, simply complete two additional checkpoints:

First: Add Trap Door as a “Geo-fence” location & use “Timer” to check in when you hang out at Trap Door.

Geofence is designed to help parents keep track of custody pick-ups and drop-offs, and for the purposes of Crash the App, it will remind YOU to go drink delicious beer.

  1. Open the Truece App
  2. From the dropdown menu or home screen click “Timer”
  3. Click the + icon sign on your screen
  4. Enter a Title (ie: Trap Door)
  5. Enter a description (ie: Crash the App)
  6. Turn on the Background Location Assist feature (swipe the toggle button to the right)
    • Click “Manage Geofence”
    • Use the map to locate Trap Door (if you are at Trap Door the location will appear)
    • Click Trap Door on the map (circles – a.k.a the geofence – will appear around the location)
    • Click the green checkmark
  1. Enter a Name for your geo fence location (ie: Free Beer!)
  2. Turn on the Notify on entry (swipe the toggle button to the right)
  3. Turn on the Notify on exit (swipe the toggle button to the right)
  4. Select Save Timer
  1. Open the Truece App
  2. From the drop down menu select “Reports”
  3. Email the report to yourself or Trap Door (click the email icon on the bottom of the screen).

Once again, what’s the point of this?

 Reporting is usually used to provide parents with a thorough and accurate record of their custody history. For you, it will be a fun little summary of all the beer-related information you’ve entered into the app. (Unless you’ve also been using it for co-parenting purposes. In which case, cool! You’ll get the best of both worlds.)

I’ve Leveled Up…now what happens?

Awesome! Now you’ll be entered into a drawing for the chance to earn:

Trap Door Pint Glasses

Growler fill of your choice

Trap Door T-Shirt

Prizes will be handed out at the Crash the App party on Wednesday, April 25th. Since we want to make sure people have time to play the game at the party, raffles will happen later in the evening, between 8 and 9pm.
