Hey, do you know about this way to cheat? First, get another e-mail address...

What are you doing with my e-mail address?

Short answer: nothing.
Long answer: nothing fundemental. Your e-mail address is used as an uniq identifyer. We send you an e-mail to confirm your address. We also send a confirmation e-mail to the people you invite. You can select which messages you like to receive. We will not sell, lend or rent out your e-mail address.

Why doesn't Autopond keep track of what cards other players have?

Because in the original Palm version it could't; the cards that other people have will change after you meet them. Goal cards never change, so those are what Autopond keeps track of.

How do you spell "Autopond"? Is the "p" capitalized?

You spell it "Autopond". The "p" is not capitalized.

What do the cards mean? What do they represent?

In the original Game, the cards had meaning to them; figuring that out was part of the fun. I wasn't smart enough to figure it out; in the web version, the cards have no meaning to them. Some cards will appear more often than others.

On the Trade screen, why does it sometimes check cards for me automatically?

Those are your goal cards, held by the other player.

How is the score calculated?

250 points for each goal card you have. 1 point for each person you know. Then, 10 points for every person you know of who has one of your cards as their goal. So, if 5 people out there want "adobe", and you have adobe, that's 50 points.

I heard Autopond is a "viral" app. Can Autopond spread viruses?

No more than any other app can spread them. Some people have referred to Autopond as a "viral app"; by that, they mean that Autopond is designed to encourage users to voluntarily spread Autopond to other users. But Autopond contains no harmful code (that I know of).

The e-mails Autopond sends do not contain exe executable code; only text. It is not an avenue for virus infection.

Hey, do you know about this way to cheat? First, get another e-mail address...

Actually, that isn't cheating. All the rules of this game are hard-coded into the app itself. The only way to cheat is to hack the code.
