Is your cellular network overloaded? Your data volume exhausted? No reception? Don’t want to spend high roaming costs abroad?
firstep is especially designed for the use case, where the visual contact to your friends is blocked and where you have no possibility to reach them, eventhough they are very close to you.
At overcrowded locations, where the cellular network is overloaded, like in the soccer stadium or at concerts, firstep helps you to maintain communication in your vicinity thanks to Bluetooth and/or WiFi, without requiring an internet connection or any network reception.
The range amounts from 10 up to 50 meters depending on obstacles. But with the help of other users in the vicinity, it can be theoretically enhanced unlimitedly, so that an own temporal and location-dependent network accrues. firstep enables you to chat with individual users in your vicinity without requiring their contact data. Of course, you can block any user to prevent unwanted messages.
Absolutely no data is sent to the internet. Not even for statistics or bug reports.
firstep works immediately after downloading
- no registration
- no login
- no personal data
- no location-based data (GPS)
- no internet connection
- no In-App purchases
- no advertisements
A version for other platforms is already in development, so you can easily make the firstep with users from other operating systems ;-)

What's New in Version 1.01
runs smoother on older devices
note: if you have an iPhone 4S or newer or an iPad 3rd generation or newer, you can leave Bluetooth activated without really having an impact on your batterylife
Amazing and perfect app
Seems like a breakthrough, this app does not require many settings, easy and quick to immediately use in right moment. Great work!
Toll, ein chatprogramm ohne chatpartner sowas hab ich mir schon immer gewünscht.. Chatpartner in der Umgebung gleich Null... Definiere Umgebung? Zwei Häuser weiter? ... Warum stellt man das Programm nicht so ein, das wenigstens ein paar chatpartner angezeigt werden, auch wenn sie nicht gleich nebenan wohnen?
