Your inventory is where items are stored in your scanner. You can view your inventory by tapping the inventory status display at the lower-left of your scanner screen, or by selecting the Inventory button in the ops menu.

The inventory management screen has separate views for portal keys versus other inventory items. You can switch between these two views using the tabs at the bottom. The number portal keys and other items you have are displayed next to their corresponding tabs, and the total count is shown at the bottom.

Inventory Tab

The items in your inventory are displayed in a carousel at the top. Below that is a second carousel for the categories of items, showing the number of items in each category. Scrolling one will also scroll the other as needed to keep them in sync. Next to each icon in the category carousel is a number showing how many items you have in that category. The categories are:

You can tap the “Manage” button below the selected category to see how many of each level or rarity of the items in that category that you have. This screen also lets you bulk recycle items. Tap any card to select all items of that level or rarity; tap it again to deselect them. As you select or deselect items, the total number of selected items will be displayed on the “Recycle” button below, and the amount of XM you would receive from recycling is displayed below the button. This number is normally orange; it turns purple if recharging would bring you close to your reserves capacity and red if it exceeds it. Once you’ve selected the items you want, tap “Recycle” to recycle them, or tap the X button to go back to the inventory screen.

Tap an item in the top carousel to get more information about that item and additional options:

  • Select a number of that item (using the “-” and “+” keys) and recycle them.
  • Drop one instance of that item.
  • For weapons, tap “Fire” to pull up the attack drawer.
  • For power cubes, tap “Use” to open the quick cube drawer.
  • For capsules, tap “Manage” to load/unload it or rename it.
  • For boosts, tap “Use” to install it.
  • For media, tap “Open” to view/listen to it.

While you are viewing details of an individual item, you can still navigate the carousel by swiping left and right.

Portal Keys

Your keys are displayed in a vertical list of cards. Each card displays a photo of the portal, along with its name, level, distance, number of keys, address, and resonator status. Each resonator is displayed as a meter (green for Enlightened, blue for Resistance), with a dot above any resonator that is fully charged. You can sort the keys by name or distance by using the selector at the bottom-left.

The “Manage” button from the items tab is also present here; this allows you to tap keys to select them, and then bulk recycle them in much the same way that you can with items.

Tap a card to see more details:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Current level
  • Photos
  • Distance to the portal
  • A button to like the currently-selected photo
  • Current resonator and mod deployment status
  • The number of keys you hold
  • Buttons to charge the portal, and recycle or drop keys

Inventory Cap

Your inventory is limited to 2,000 items (2,500 if you are a C.O.R.E. member). There are certain rules when it comes to obtaining items with respect to your inventory cap.

  • If you are at or above your inventory cap, you cannot hack a portal or pick up an item.
  • If you are below your inventory cap, you keep all items you get from a hack, even if it puts you over your cap.
  • You cannot pick up a capsule that would put you over the inventory cap, even if you’re currently under it.
  • You can always unload key lockers, even if you are at or over the inventory cap before unloading it.
  • You will always get all the items awarded in a field kit, even if you are already at or over the inventory cap.
