CONNECT WITH FRIENDS
Message your friends in group chats — no wifi or cell signal needed.
Our frictionless Bluetooth Low Energy technology transmits your message using an encrypted mesh network so only those invited can see it — that means if you’re at WaterFire with friends, you can message one another securely even without a cell or WiFi signal.
All this is possible with our FREE iOS app (sign up for our mailing list to be notified when it’s available). Thanks to our unique technology, it works on iPhone, iPod Touch, Apple Watch, and even iPads — no cell or Internet connection necessary!
During setup, you pick the channels you want to subscribe to — meaning you’ll only get information on the topics and organizations you care about. (If you change your mind later, you can always pick new categories.)
Then, get on your feet! As you explore, you’ll get notifications on your device directly from the organizations you’ve selected whenever there’s something new to explore. It’s that easy.
