How does it work? It creates a peer to peer network with nearby devices using Bluetooth, peer to peer WiFi and infrastructure WiFi. No up required! I m interested to including in my services but I need your sdk to accounplish that. What is the cost? Can I purchase your software to do my own or will you develop it for my company exclusive use?
This kind of apps very helpful for local messaging. You all bullshit!!! It is based on bluetooth and wifi within distance of each other. Hi Ngan Tengyuen, you seem to be good at apps like these. Let me know pls if there are any antennas to extend range for both android and iOS. Does Firechat provide call or chat only? Thx in advance. Could you verify for me? However, with internet connection, these apps still works regardless of the distance. FireChat works even when one phone have no sim card and out of range any wi-fi but with wi-fi on set on both phones.
That means FireChat creates real independent mesh and is able to be used for communication out of grid. Do you know any app that provide both text and call out of grid for both iOS and Android? Thanks again. It used to. The company stopped doing this probably because Islamic State was using it for messaging with Internet. The company stopped this support in Since this is the case, you might as well keep using WhatsApp or al.
I think you are wrong about necesity of internet connection to communicate nearby. Of course you are right your recipient need to have the same app installed. Probably for personal message we both need to be identified before. May be thats why we need register first having internet access. By the way: anyone knows how to get Firechat manual? I have try to use some of this your apps but it seems they all need internet connection.
Please stop lying to people and came out with something that can do the job. You need bluetooth and within distance for the 2 smartphone. Some of these apps need internet connection for registration purpose. I suggest just to try. Cut off wi-fi, mobile data transfer and then try to connect with your friend who is not farer than 50 meters and have the same app installwd. Then share your with all of us. Then you can chat nearby. We are going to soon be hit by hurricane Irma. We are all leaving but my husband has to come back as soon as the storm passes due to him being apart of the clean up crew.
I would like to be able to stay in contact with him to know he is safe. Without internet? No such app exist due to hardware limitation. It has to have some way of sending out the data, right? If it is not bluetooth, not wifi, not cellular network, how does the app send out data? If you can transmit data without it being connected to something, then why bother building network towers? Wait for 3GPP to come up with their ProSe, which will give proximity services in the range of m as compared to the WiFi range of m.
A mesh network of a few phones can give you that kind of range. Mesh networks can be used from phone to phone across great distances, but, there has to be a phone in range and your listed range is too far without other mesh users in between.
So, in these cases, with great distances between, and no internet, and no land based phone network, you will need to go with a Satellite phone option. Bridgify… Somerhing like that…. Every cellphone becomes like an Antena and expand the al… We used it here in mexico a couples of months ago just after a big earthwake, i dont kmow how to spell it, buy its works great. The Serval Mesh can do this with a long range relay device they are specifically working on for the purpose of relay communications in the outback.
The relay devices are WiFi only the app supports Bluetooth relay but in testing relays between Bluetooth WiFi incur heavy delays, so they are focusing on the longer range option of WiFi. From what I have read, firechat looks like the first and most popular and thus best connected of these apps. Even if my mobile data is down and I do not have an Internet connection myself? And if that is the case, will the entire mesh be using up that one guys mobile data for the month just because he is the only connection to the net?
Firechat is actually pretty difficult to use. This is false advertising. Wish me luck! The only two I have tested is Serval and FireChat. I have discovered that they do not coexist well, so you really have to pick one that works best for you. FireChat only requires internet to set up, then it will work offline. It can even somehow bypass background data restrictions to some degree.
It is a text only app, but very resilient at its mesh ability and it is cross platform which may be very important in many situations. The Serval Mesh is kind of buggy. The advantage of FireChat is it can take advantage of an internet connection whenever available on top of WiFi and Bluetooth relay ability. Serval Mesh is very much a point to point communication platform, FireChat is deed as a public communication platform, kind of like a Twitter lite. Messages move from phone to phone to spread across the network. It can stretch as far as there are phones running the app. If you include a contact e-mail or phonethese folks can share your status with your loved ones.
Molly, One person said it was integral to the Cajun Navy in Houston for them to communicate rescuing people. I just downloaded it, it took about 30 seconds and it is really cool, works just like a real walkie-talkie. After it is downloaded it will ask you if you want to test the app, click yes. At that point the walkie-talkie part will show up and you will have a red circle in the middle of the screen, press down on that Circle and hold it until it turns green and start talking, when you are done talking stop pressing, kind of like a real walkie talkies with buttons on the side.
Zello can get groups together to accomplish great things but as soon as the tower goes it is useless. These mesh type apps will work even when the towers go down. The only downside to them is range. Of course range can be extended every time someone installs the app. Sounds like there should be a movement for all Smartphone users to install Firechat, on their phones.
