Not fully functional without root Nice idea, maybe, but you can't get an ad hoc WiFi mesh network unless you have root access, and this app requires extensive permissions to work.
Great app for simple communication services The app has changed a lot and really impressed me with how well it functions in offline mode as a private phone network. I'mo sure that more improvements will happen.
Brilliant! As a ham radio operator running a mesh node on the ham band plan I really appreciate this app. The potential is boundless. No license required for this particular mesh network. Donate please and Dev's please keep up the outstanding work!
Excellent idea This is a great idea, and my phone is rooted so it works. Problem is finding others that are willing or able to root their phones. Wish creating an adhoc network didn't require this. Using a wifi router works, but using hotspot network sorta does although sometimes one caller can't hear the other.
Brilliant Concept If this app did not require the device to be rooted the number of nodes could increase greatly.
Great app, better the Firechat This is the best app to get for emergencies or for use anytime when you need it. 1. It does not require you to create an account to use which does require an internet connection so it is useless if installed after the net goes down and there is no reason to make an account for something that supposed to be used when there is no service as Firechat does. 2. You can share the app directly with another person you chat with and do not require to be on the internet or have cell service allowing others to install and use the app should the need arise. It is all and all the best app I have used so far.
