In these years chatting and messaging apps gaining popularity. You are all familiar with popular chatting apps like WhatsApp, Kik, Snapchat, Skype,etc.. The biggest drawback of these apps is it requires a cellular service network connection or an active internet. Here is a new app that doesn’t require a cellular service network connection or an active internet to communicate with others, the app is FireChat. The FireChat app lets you communicate with others in close proximity without any service provider or Internet. The secret behind the app is, the FireChat works based on a technology called ‘wireless mesh networking’. The app is working as “off-the-grid”. This new technology will help to tie together thousands of devices with built-in radios and make it possible to be online without having to charge for the network access. Here is the screenshot of the app in action.
The new app will change the way people communicate with others. As it requires no internet or cellular connection the app will be cost-effective, secure, and affordable to your pocket. The present problem with FireChat is its range is limited. The current iPhone app users have only been able to send text and photos to other FireChat users within a range of 30 to 100 feet. If you are using Snapchat and other apps, the texts and photos sent on Snapchat will be saved, but on FireChat, nothing saved that transmitted through FireChat. All content vanishes once the app is closed. More secure! Isn’t it? Another advantage of FireChat is it allows all its users to remain anonymous.
