This is an alpha release of the Lightning App running on Bitcoin testnet. To try the release, just do the following:
1. Install the app and follow the setup instructions.
2. Head on over to a faucet and fund your wallet with testnet BTC: https://testnet.coinfaucet.eu/en/
3. Wait a few minutes for the wallet to sync. Once completed, the app will open payment channels automatically. The funding transactions need to confirm just like regular on-chain transactions.
4. Go to a site that supports Lightning like Yalls and buy something: https://testnet.yalls.org
General usability feedback is greatly appreciated. For a list of known bugs see: https://github.com/lightninglabs/lightning-app/issues
