Upon start the the time will be synchronized with an NTP server and the status of the beacons will be checked from the NCDXF website.

Beacons is a mobile app which allows mobile users to track each other on a map, designed with two goals in mind: privacy and simplicity.
* How does it work?
Suppose Bob and Helen want to meet somewhere and they also want to know where the other one is, at any moment. Bob will create a Beacons session and pass the session key to Helen by phone, SMS or e-mail. After Helen joins Bob's session, they will be able to track each other's position as they move.
A session can be joined by any number of participants, as long as they know the session key.
No signup, no email, just a 6 characters session key.
* Is it safe?
Beacons is not exchanging any personal data with the server. The session key is randomly generated for each new session and each participant uses either the default nickname or whatever he chooses. If someone deliberately decides to use his real name as nickname that's a personal choice. Only the session key, the nicknames and the geo coordinates are exchanged with the server.
Once a session's participants count reaches zero on the server, the session is automatically deleted. Sessions inactive for more than an hour are also deleted.
Only the current session's state is stored on the server, there is no history.

Ever wanted a Behance client for Android that's worthy of being on Behance? Well me too! I was unhappy with the offerings on the Play Store, so I decided to make my own. Here it is; welcome to Beacon. Beacon is a quick and powerful Behance client that reinterprets the Behance experience and allows you to interact with your favorite content.
It's simple, it's beautiful, and it's awesome. And not to mention, it's tablet optimized!
So why is it called Beacon? Well, I like to think of Behance as a beacon of creativity. It brings designers and creators from all different fields into one experience that we can all appreciate.
