This App Lets You Chat Even When You Have No Reception

 

 Whoa! This is so cool. Want to chat to your mates in the wilderness even if there’s no reception? There’s an app for that…

It’s not too often these days that an iPhone still surprises you. We’ve more or less seen it all by now. Except, we haven’t. #firechat is a new app that takes advantage of a little-known iOS feature that makes it easy to set up and run a network even when there’s no cellular signal.

In effect, FireChat creates a small mesh network for local users. Instead of transmitting data through a cellular signal or by connecting to the internet, the app actually creates its own mini-internet where each #mobile #device is its own node. This is also known as a mesh network, and it’s possible thanks to a new feature that arrived with iOS 7, called the Multipeer Connectivity Framework. This is great for wannabe spies, because it effectively lets you communicate off the grid.
