This app is for you and your near friends. It works best with a few modern iPads but any iPhone (4S or better) or recent iPod will do fine too. IOS7 or higher.Around a family diner table or in a club to stay connected. Maybe you even meet some unexpected new contacts. Just tab on the top-left button and to connect to others in the room and choose one to enter a chat. No need to be real close or be on the internet. A connection to the same Wifi network or at Bluetooth distance is enough. Privacy guaranteed. No need to have an account to some service provider and no chats are stored anywhere. You can change the name you are broadcasting with if you want. Up to 8 devices can connect to each other. The app was originally designed to get a deaf family member or friend better involved in the conversation with the hearing people in the room or around the table. People less mobile might benefit from the app as well for the same reasons. There is no need anymore to pass an iPad or iPhone with Notes or alike from one person to another. Everybody can join or view the conversation with their own device using this app.
What's new in version 1.6.0
This version is a major revision:- bubble style chat view with different colours for every friend- swipe functions to resend or edit sent/received texts and send again- share snapshot photos during the chat - help text to guide through the app functions- all preferences just one click away- notifications in background processing to be able to leave the app and do mail or something else without losing connection- timer to dismiss the app when it is in background after about 7 minutes of inactivity to avoid unnecessary use of memory or battery- provided having it set up right, notifications will reach other Bluetooth devices like a Pebble Watch when the app is running in the background - setup a separate "room" to have a private chat with someone. . . and performance, stability and bug fixes.
