"Fire Chat" sounds like a phony location-based sex line. We already have Whatsapp, Facebook messenger, Snapchat etc, what makes Fire Chat different?You can chat "off the grid", even if there is no internet connection or mobile phone coverage. Instead of relying on a central server, it is based on peer-to-peer “mesh networking” and connects to nearby phones using Bluetooth and Wi Fi, with connectivity increasing as more people use it in an area. According to Fire Chat, "on the beach or in the subway, at a big game or a trade show, camping in the wild or at a concert, or even travelling abroad, simply fire up the app with a friend or two and find out who else is there."Seriously though.That’s what happens for users of Tantan, a dating app that’s popular among randy Chinese.
