How much time does it take to receive an invitation?

We know how frustrating it is to sign up to a service or application and not get to test it out right away.

Even though Routine is still in its early days, we are working very hard to provide the best experience possible. This is why we restrain ourselves from inviting everybody at once.

We have ten of thousands of people on the waiting list and we try to invite a few hundred every week.

As an estimate, it can therefore take 1 to 3 months to get an invite.

You can however refer the app to your friends to move up in the waiting list.

Troubleshooting

I get an error message “Sorry, something went wrong there. Try again.”

If you see this message when signing in with Google, copy the URL (https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/...) and try opening it in a different browser.

This is an error that happens on Google’s side and which Routine cannot solve by itself.

However, it can often be resolved by opening the URL in a different browser.
