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 ;-)

Super Idee und Funktion

Eine Chat-App ohne Internet ist eine super Idee, um z. B. auf Veranstaltungen in Kontakt zu treten oder auch zu bleiben.

An die Negativ-Rezensenten: Ihr habt absolut nicht verstanden, um was es bei der App geht! Bleibt bei WhatsApp, verschenkt eure Daten, aber verzichtet bitte darauf, aus eurem Unverständnis heraus eine App schlecht zu bewerten!

endlich unabhängig :)

Simsen :) wobei Grundvoraussetzung ist, dass die eigene Freundestruppe es auch installiert hat, sonst kann man selbstverständlich nichts finden :)
Man sollte es dort nutzen, wo die Netze überlastet sind :)
Und läuft leider nicht im Hintergrund. Bluetooth geht, aber WLAN irgendwie nicht :(

Richtig Klasse!!

Leute in der Umgebung werden direkt angezeigt und man kann direkt darauf losschreiben! Alles ganz ohne Rufnummer Eingabe und Kontakterstellung! Daumen hoch!!
