FireChat


FireChat introduces a new way to chat: "off-the-grid".
Now you can chat with people around you – even if there is no Internet connection or mobile phone coverage.



Whether you’re on the beach or in the subway, at a big game or a trade show, camping in the wild or at a concert, or even travelling abroad, simply fire up the app with a friend or two and find out who else is there.


FireChat enables a new type of communication: “firechats”. These live and anonymous discussion groups can gather as many as 10,000 people simultaneously.

You can create your own firechats about anything that interests you - whether it's the NY Yankees, Game of Thrones, League of Legends or Italian food.

Get FireChat and start bringing people together.

We’re Open Garden. Welcome to a new era of open communications.

Seems to work You MUST install "Open Garden: Internet Sharing" in order to use the mesh networking. Otherwise you won't ever see anyone "nearby". That should be made clearer in the description.

Satisfaction This app is better then others but not best it needs some improvements upto the satisfaction of the user. This app doesn't have rooms to chat in private moreover after one or two days this app has to reinstall as the error occurs than its not working and 2 options come report or ok. So this also should be updated. Overall this app is good for making new friends.
