No internet at your favourite music gig? No worries, there’s a mesh messaging app for that | Latest News & Updates at Daily News & Analysis

No internet at your favourite music gig? No worries, there’s a mesh messaging app for that | Latest News & Updates at Daily News & Analysis | Open Garden Press Coverage | Scoop.it
No internet at your favourite music gig? No worries, there’s a mesh messaging app for that - Now that messaging apps (Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and the rest of the pack) have firmly entrenched themselves in our minute-to-minute lives, what happens when there’s no network? Frustration, exasperation, and that feeling of sadness, right? Be it your cellular 2G/3G data or WiFi, without a working signal--which is often the case in lifts, stairwells, and at places you need it the most--you’re left stranded. And no matter how high end your phone or how fast a cellular data plan you have, there’s not a thing you can do about it.
 
Until now.
