iOS 7 incorporates technology known as Multipeer Connectivity Framework that, making use of the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity between mobile devices, allows the transmission of messages or files even without mobile coverage at that precise moment. FireChat takes advantage of this feature, allowing us to chat from our iPhone even from the most hidden place on Earth.
- Send messages to people around you without requiring mobile coverage.
- Chat or send photos to a person or group of people.
- Without passwords or needing to log in with a user account.
- Low resource consumption.
The mobile devices themselves weave a network to connect to.
Although it's true that you need to be near the people you want to talk to, with FireChat you'll never be left in the lurch. This application is specially useful in places like the subway, stadiums full of people or concerts where we usually lose our signal, allowing us to comment on anything that happens or share our best photos.
