This has been around for a bit right? I guess I'm not quite sure what Google's doing that I'm not already getting with just using them for app and using name.com for domains. I'm a big Google fan but for the moment I'm happy enough with name.com.

Unless you guys think it's super awesome, in which case yes, I'll take an invite.

I own a domain again.  Now I need to figure out what to do with it.  Maybe a blog at some point.  (been thinking about it lately)

The google interface is really nice.  I like the privatization settings.  I like that it integrates with google DNS automatically (or you can use another).  I like the 100 email forwarders and the website forwarders.

My domain is locked for transfers too, with auto renew.

$12 a year... not shabby.

I wonder if they'll start making this new .app TLD available through their registrar service?

I use mine for email.  My whole family, myself and the odd special temp use.  They can then be filtered through gmail or the like.  Never need to fool with changing email when changing providers.
