Who's installed it and begun using it?

Have you used the "Camera Eye" photo booth, and posted your pic to Instagram to enter the contest for a Geddy Fender Jazz bass?

What about the "Finding My Way" videgame?  Any tips?  I can't easily move my character (Geddy) where I want him to go!

Jeez, it’s garbage.


I wonder what this is leading up to?

Not downloading an app and/or joining instagram for an unlikely shot to win a bass that I would love to have.

They have my email address.

I didn't want Instagram either, but I did it.  As a bass player, I WANT THAT BASS.

Agree the app is kinda cheesy.  It's totally a promotional tool, with links to Rush news stories (which you can get through Rushisaband), link to the Backstage Club (you could just navigate there directly), and a bunch of fanfare for the 2112 40th Anniversary CD/DVD, which drops Dec 9th.  Marketing!  No longer touring, but Anthem still wants our money.

I entered the contest and I'll play the videogame until I complete all levels.

I tried to download it but it wouldn’t work. Maybe too many people trying at the same time.

If they’re done why is there a promotional app?  What are they promoting?

In the short-term, the forthcoming 40th anniversary edition of 2112.  Longer-term, the other Rush merchandise at the Backstage Club.  "Keep buying t-shirts and CDs!  And look at this framed photograph, only $300!"

Already got one of the original '98 models. This would be up on ebay immediately.

I am still trying to figure out the point of the “Fly By Night” section. It does nothing on my iPhone and iPad.
