Fortnite [Free] is a game that needs absolutely no introduction at this point. Celebrities are playing it, it has taken over Twitch, and the fervor surrounding getting mobile invite codes so you can play the game on your iOS device is absolutely off the charts. We met with the guys from Epic at GDC, and they hooked us up with over 50 Fortnite mobile invite codes. We’ll be giving them away today on our Discord server in the #fortnite_codes channel at 7:00 PM Eastern (4:00 PM Pacific).
Using Discord [Free] is super simple, and you can either use the mobile app, or go to the Discord site to either use the web client or download the desktop version. Once you’re all set, you can either click this link or use the widget below to join:
All we ask is that if you’re going to hang around and snag a code from the giveaway that you play the game, stick around, and share the three codes you’ll get to invite other people in our Discord server. It’d be really awesome to keep the chain rolling as with these 50 invites people will have 150 invites to give away, then from those people will have 450 invites to give away, and so on. If folks stick around and be cool members of the TouchArcade community, there’s no reason why everyone who wants one can’t eventually have an invite inside of a couple days if everyone is paying it forward!
If you want to get ahead of the game, register for an Epic games account (you’ll need this to claim invite codes), get Discord set up, be in the channel, and download Fortnite. The code giveaway will begin today at 7:00 PM Eastern, 4:00 PM Pacific.

We know that Apple’s facial recognition and 3D imaging technology, TrueDepth, is at least two-and-a-half years ahead of its closest competition.

When you get deep enough into Reddit, you inevitably stumble across something you didn’t know existed — or could exist. Case in point: r/shoplifting, an active subreddit where Redditors talk about exactly what the name suggests. At over 80,000 subscribers, it’s a relatively large community, and they aren’t shy about their intentions. The subreddit’s raison d’être is to talk about stealing stuff, ways of stealing stuff, and places to go where you may most easily steal stuff. They’re very careful to specify that they aren’t ‘fessing up to anything … until they do, naturally. Here are Reddit’s content policy, regarding “unwelcome…
