    @m0sh, I'm not being aggressive at all. You just said 'no app?' with them flashing eyes. And Patrick did state the status of both apps so apart from you not reading my post, I couldn't figure out why you would post that, except, of course, if you were being a negative Nancy. From the little I know, when an app is submitted for inclusion, Apple, MS, Mozilla & Google, etc. check for software compatibility. The ones that currently have the ios app are the beta testers.

    I, too, use android. From what I've read, it's easier to write code for the ios so they started with that platform 1st. Don't know how much longer it's gonna be for android, but can't wait to hear the satisfaction level of those on ios when released.

    I almost never post, and I lurk less and less these days. I don't even know how to list the vapes I own in my sig. However, I have owned a few vapes...MFLB, Solo, Pax, Air, Extreme Q, E-Nano, XMax, and most recently, a Grasshopper. The Air, Q, E-Nano, and the Grasshopper are all I need...I believe. I do not own this vape and I have not used this vape.

    That said, why would anyone buy this vape? Not trying to disparage but the videos on YouTube seem a little forced...like an infomercial as opposed to a real review. I was shocked that there are 44 pages in this forum. Is this vape the only/best all in one portable vape?

    @humblesmurph, open up the dialogue box under your name in the upper right corner & you will see 'signature.' Here you can add you vapes if you desire. And no, this is not the only &, arguably, the best of all portable vapes. It's strictly personal appeal. I now have 3 vapes & I love them all for different reasons.

    Hi again, if there's no app for Andorid, then them the app is not ready.

    And yes, flashing eyes, I took a vacation from this thread and I'm amazed its still not done.

    Too bad, IMO, the app should have never been discussed then, it was not ready for 1 day so it shouldn't be " a part" of the vape...as a selling point if you get what I'm saying.

    Ok...let me just say....this has been and still is the most complicated release of a product I have seen in awhile. Yea...it's more than obvious that Ghost released way to early, but there are reasons why this happened and some other reasons why at the last minute prior to its release....this became even worse....now in hindsight.

    So now Ghost is struggling to fix this after they made a few mistakes......as a first time vape producer.

    Be happy, be angry, be what ever you want to be. But it does not change the fact that this vape has exceptional abilities even when it has problems right now.........many of those problems will be solved with the software getting reset so it heats properly and utilizes the battery better. I can also assure you that this company has gone way way out of its way to support those of us with the units now. They have spent a ton of time working with us and sending parts they didn't have to to us. I am incredibly impressed by their efforts as a business.



    So.....yea Ghost shoulda coulda woulda.....but it dinta.....so we can only wait as it is now close to the time we can get the software reset to go on from there with this vape.




    Welcome to the discussion humblesmurph.

    The reason why some might want to buy this vape is because it is an instant on heavy extractor. So first and foremost if you want quick and great medication, check this vape out. Beyond that....way to many opinions and use case scenario differences will come into play... that everyone has big differences in. I can sum it up like this for you to go from or not...just depends on what you need/want.

    For further indepth info about the Ghost MV1....you will need to seek the vape life forum where the manufacture communicates with, online wise.

    Nope...that's not what that means. What it means is that Ghost has submitted their app to Apple for their examination and approval to have it listed in their app store.

    This is required for all apps in all stores. NOBODY let's you just upload an app, that may be a malicious or just crappy, on their store until they have examined and tested it.

    This is a common process and not vape or Ghost related.

    No...logically NO. if there is no app for Android all that means is....wait for it....no app for Android.

    They are very different operating systems. Why Ghost picked iOS over Android to go first, I don't know. I do know that at the company I fairly recently retired from, we developed an wifi only phone app that rode over top on your mobile as a custom job for one of our telco service provider customers. We/customer decided to go Android first because Apple was just more locked down and harder to customize. Android was more wide open for those functions we were interested in. I believe with this simple Ghost app, that doesn't really apply.



    Cheers

    Yeah NOBODY ... Except Android, which does a real time scan for malware and exploits (few seconds) and then lets you go instantly live.

    Who here thinks there are 10,000 Ghost MV1 iOS users? (Of course there aren't). So ghost could distribute betas of their iOS app to every current ghost owner instantly without waiting for approval from Apple if they use TestFlight.

    Either their firmware APIs work or they don't. Spinning wheels for months to lay even a basic UI on top of these API calls, and blaming Apple or Google review processes, is strictly amateur hour. Gross incompetence.

    @m0sh, call it an app-in-progress. Don't know what else to say.

    @analytika, I know nothing about software programming so I leave that to the learned. But strictly from an administrative perspective, I believe if they released a beta app to 1200- 1500 people and it didn't function correctly from the initial release, they'd have a real mess on their hands; everyone would be coming at them from all different directions. You know human nature when people aren't happy. They lash out. Just look at the uproar on the speculation threads on FC & VLF when the vape kept being delayed. And at that time they still had their money in their pockets. Having small control groups as they work their way through the beta version just makes sense, at least to me. Now that they feel that they have the ios update functioning, at least acceptably, for mass release, we are gonna have a huge user group who really are to be considered beta testers because you know that add'l issues are gonna surface & revisions released.

    I've learned from being an early adapter that it isn't for me. It's not just the patience (& this has truly has taught me patience -- pat myself on the back) & frustration of waiting, but, mostly, the whole human nature negativity aspect that I choose to be removed from. It just makes waiting so unpleasant.

    I was just gifted an Enano from a generous fellow FC'er. :rockon: Having tried it yesterday for the 1st time, one of my initial thoughts was that this is exactly what I expected, want & still expect the MV1 to be. And, I'm hoping that in the long run it will be. I can either continue to hang in or bail, & I've hung in so long, I'm willing to go the distance. And I so want to come out with a vape I love more than the money back in my pocket. I love the feel of it, the look of it, the way it communicates via vibration for regulated inhalations & most of all when it hits good, it really hits good. It's such a pleasant, light, clean, clear head with a sativa. And I think this is a wonderful vape for microdosing.

    The point is that you can release at your own discretion to very large beta groups -- far exceeding the sales forecast of a teenage fanboy with wet underpants. Without spending even an hour in app review by some authority.

    Where did you get the inside information that they were working on UI for the past 2 months?

    You can call their ability to get the app finished and working what ever you want......but the fact remains that the hardware and design are anything but amateur.

    What exactly is the heating element made of? I couldn't find the information anywhere. Also, I've returned from my leave of absence (super happy with the herbalizer) so hello everyone!

    Just received my Ghost. Got the email today at 1:30pm that it had shipped. It was delivered at 11:08am this morning. Lol. Yes you read that right.

    Got the battery charging and going to get familiar with everything and look forward to trying her out later this afternoon.

    Watched a few more videos. I can't lie...I just don't get the appeal of this particular device. If anyone wants something portable that hits like an E-Nano, a Grasshopper with a PFE will satisfy that need perfectly. Forgive me if I miss the point of these kinds of threads. If this is a MVH1 appreciation thread, please disregard. Also, I very much appreciate the Vape Critic and his videos...but this device is just not good. Overly complex. Proprietary batteries. Too heavy. Ugly as hell. Honestly, are there people here at FC who have paid full price for this device and are happy with their purchase?

    Additionally, I get that there are different strokes for different folks. I have no dog in any fights. I do not sell vapes. There are lots of vapes that I would never buy, but this one just seems to stick out as particularly bad.

    Thanks for the info. Two follow up questions: Did you pay for yours and have you tried a Grasshopper with the PFE? Not a shill for Grasshopper. I actually have very little faith in either of these devices from a dependability standpoint. Ferraris are always going to spend more time in the shop than Hondas I suppose. I am just asking for a comparison.

    You will not be able to understand it unless you have one or use one. It's ability to medicate quickly and heavily is its attraction for many...including me. Also, the technology allows for incredibly smooth, dense, and cool vapor. It is the only vape I can use with out going through water so far....can not say that about a grasshopper.....burning down the house is what I would say with that one.

    That is my summary for you without going into any details......which are many.

    I have two grasshoppers. One in RMA mode. It is the Ferrari which I treat so kindly cause it is so stealthy impressive. The Ghost is a tank. I expect once it is debugged and mine is close that this will be the superstar that was hyped. The extraction coolness and flavor are pretty much unequaled. The large mass makes it alot easier to engineer compared to the flighty grasshopper IMO.

    Proof of purchase attached. Early adopter.

    Nah, I don't have those vapes. I have an IQ, a mighty, a Crafty, a firefly 1, firefly 2, Pax 2, and had a solo at one point.

    I can't comment on the other vapes I haven't tried. Why would you be so quick to pass judgement on a device you haven't handled yet?

    It is a rocketship man, no doubt bro. It will lift you to space with ease. It hits that firefly curve without the effort. Riding the lighting man.

    My Ghost performs really well, I'm not a beta tester nor used the app. I keep the heat setting on 2 Amber for the most part, sometimes 3 Amber for that last hit. I found that the crucible lid get gunked up really fast causing performance to drop, so I just dip it in ISO and give it a quick scrub with a tooth brush and its good to go. Last night I was a little medicated so I thought WTF :hmm:, I'm going to cut out a screen and use it in the place of the crucible lid to see if there was any performance drop. This method worked excellent! :o I've killed about 6 crucibles this way and have only had to clean the screen only once or twice with a quick brush and no sticky buildup. I haven't needed to give the bowl a stir either.
    I'm really digging this vape!

    I have no way of handling it without purchasing it. You have more experience with more varied vapes than I do. I have watched multiple videos and asked questions. I guess I am posing my questions in a negative manner to get you to talk about the positives of the device, if that makes any sense. Also, knowing whether you paid for your device makes a difference in credibility for me. I say nice things about free stuff and am more critical of stuff I paid for. Thank you for your time and I apologize if I come off as bashing. Obviously, even if I were blatantly bashing the device, I 'd have no credibility because I haven't used it. Seems like many very experienced people are very pleased with it.
