Online PR News – 18-September-2013 –Talkkr, a new iOS 7 app is coming out today for Apple’s iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch with the release of iOS7. This app lets users connect with others in their immediate area, with only a bluetooth and/or wifi connection, no cellular network required.
Utilizing iOS7's new multipeer connectivity feature, Talkkr is the new chat app that lets users chat with others on a micro local level (within wifi or bluetooth range). Users can chat with others at the same concert, share notes in class, or meet a new friend at a coffee shop. Talkkr can even be used in an emergency situation to stay connected to nearby people when normal cell services are down.
“Chat room content is not transmitted via the internet, so there is no chance of the NSA encroaching on your privacy.”
It's simple, just open the app and users immediately join an existing chat room. If a chat isn't taking place, users automatically start their own. The app does not ask for an email address and there is no signup or login process; users simply open up Talkkr and start chatting. Furthermore, it is totally anonymous, so users in the chat don't know who each other are unless they point themselves out. Chat room content is not transmitted via the internet, so there is no chance of the NSA encroaching on user privacy.
Version 1 of Talkkr allows users to set a custom user name and status message if they choose, otherwise they are assigned a random user name. Talkkr is great to use at crowded locations where getting a signal might be difficult. Just turn on bluetooth and let Talkkr do the rest. Also, look forward to private messaging within chats, coming shortly after the Talkkr release.
Talkkr can be installed on iOS7 devices starting today and is available for download now from the App Store here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/talkkr/id690301749?ls=1&mt=8
