The ORIGINAL mesh network communication, chat app that works off the grid by bouncing data (msgs) by peers' phones! GREAT at rallies, fests, or anytime you're in a crowd and doomsday hits! -Godzilla tears your cell towers down, -aliens raygun blast our satellites, -an earthquake swallows your cable internet, -terrorists fly planes into a building, you get the idea...

I Installed it and kept copies of the APK installer for Android (and the one for iOS) _to share the app with others _in case they can't get online!
