I guess it'll be handy, if you are the kind of person who insists on sending txt's and tweets and suchlike to your crowd you hang with who are in spitting distance of you, and could just as easily hear you if you hollered the message.
To say it's got all the elegance and purpose equivalent to two cans and a connected bit of string, is probably insulting the cans-and-stringe telephone, but seriously, this fits into that category of practical purposeful use. If it was any less purposeful or useful, it'd join the solar torch in the list of pointless gadgets and tools.
Not my thing, so no rating (read 1 as 0, since it don't allow a zero or negative number of stars).
As for the 10m limit - it's not a Bluetooth specific limitation of Bluetooth in general, it's because of the bluetooth class most mobile devices comply with and that limits them to 10m range - high power BT class kit can easily exceed 100m range (i.e. bluetooth dongles attached to PC's, some BT adaptors embedded in laptops, some BT audio devices comply with high-power/long range class BT usage).
Remember, most phones and tablets were intended to use BT as a close range/near proximity transfer method, WIFI and Cellular are the 'medium/long range' methods on such devices.
Whoever said in the review that "how are you supposed to do voice chat" is an IDIOT! VOICE CHAT IS COMING IN THE NEXT UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you actually read it
Overall I think that it is a really good app for talking to your mates about 10 meters away without any obstacles. If you are in a ferry or a cruise ship then it DOES NOT WORK because you have a things called obstacles like steel/metal walls all over the place!!!!!
It doesent go more than 10 meters because.....
Bluetooth is only ment to go around 10 meters away from each device
