Description

Bridgefy is a messaging app that works when you don't have access to the Internet. Simply turn on Bluetooth and start sending messages. Ideal for traveling, natural disasters, rural communities, music festivals, sports stadiums, and more.
Use the Broadcast tab of the app so you can chat with other Bridgefy users within your Bluetooth's antenna range (about 330 ft or 100 m) during tough times in which Internet connectivity is complicated. Please keep in mind Broadcast messages can be seen by anybody nearby.

How to start using Bridgefy:

1.- Turn on Bluetooth
2.- Open Bridgefy, making sure you have an Internet connection (only needed the very first time you open it)
3.- Go to the Broadcast tab
4.- Start sharing messages with people that are within 330 ft. (100 mts) from you

Please refer to the FAQ tab for instructions on how to start a private chat!

You don't need to add contacts to Bridgefy. The app automatically detects other Bridgefy users around you and lets you chat using the Broadcast section.

Please keep in mind Broadcast messages can be seen by anybody nearby.

Great Idea

There are plenty of times where people may not have service and need to contact someone. This is a wonderful idea, but people who do have service will be annoyed with the ads. Can we please pay a small price to get rid of the ads? Also I get logged out a lot. Would be great if it would remember us and our contacts better. Even if it saved the info in our files somewhere would be good. Messages don’t always send right away and if you can’t get it to send at all, log out and back in.

Please check out my review developer. 🥹

Great app!

Very useful app for densely populated areas.

Please add the ability for users that have internet to act as bridges to link users without internet and allow them to communicate with other users online.

If you have trouble getting this app to work. Logout, delete the app, and re-download. Then be sure you have internet the first time it launches and make sure Bluetooth is on first. Make sure you choose a new nickname if your first setup attempt didn’t work.

Developer Response ,

Hi there, no app can communicate with another app, at least on iOS devices. We would appreciate it if you could give us a good rating! Thanks.

Gross embedded ads

For a supposedly privacy-friendly app, I was surprised to find ads embedded in this thing. I didn’t even get a chance to test the app’s functionality before I got too irritated by the ads and their inconsistent placement to consider this a viable piece of software.

Even if you could ignore the privacy-invading nature of ads like this, their design treatment in the app isn’t even good.

Very disappointed, and immediately uninstalling this app.
