FireChat- a new anonymous messaging app which has received more than 100,000 downloads, uses one of the best features we have seen so far for people to talk to each other.
The app holds a feature in Apple’s mobile software, iOS 7, called a Multipeer Connectivity Framework. This is found on all Apple devices and enables a direct connection to other devices over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi without the need of an Internet connection to act as an intermediary.
FireChat is a combination of Snapchat and Whisper: the app lets you send anonymous messages to a chat room filled with random people, but the messages are not stored anywhere and are quickly deleted when you close the app.
But more than just an anonymous chatting app, FireChat is a new wy to explore and chat, where people can connect to the Internet or cell service. The app could be really useful if you’re at a crowded concert where lines of communication are blocked. FireChat also lets the users to quickly share photos and comments with the people around you without interference.
