Awesome App (Helpful Tip)

This app is awesome! Great for chatting with people when you’re trying to have a private conversation in public... good local communicator. I wish you guys would add support for sending and receiving messages while the device is locked, as well as replying. Would also like to send pictures and attachments! Otherwise, awesome app!

Great for traveling abroad

Before we went to Cuba, we downloaded the Bluetooth texting app Air Chat. It is good for talking with your partner at loud concert spaces, from the front to the back of a bus or van, or at a busy dinner table. Like “what are you ordering” or “Can you believe this loudmouth?”

In Cuba wifi is quite tricky to use. The Bluetooth solution was great.

I tested all three Bluetooth chat apps and the free ‘Air Chat’ is far and away the best.

Perfect for Flying

I love this app and use it every time I fly with my family. We don’t always get to sit together on the plane and there’s rarely any WiFi on the flight that lets you send messages. This app is the perfect solution. We just leave our Bluetooth on and we can stay in touch the entire flight.
