TubeChat is the only short-range messaging app designed to work on the London Underground where there is no cellular or wifi. It uses Bluetooth on your iPhone to make automatic incognito connections to people with the same app up to 200 metres away allowing you chat, flirt and play. With the help of TubeChat now your phones are fun again once your train has left the platform

Reasons to download:

- It’s free.
- No annoying ads.
- No data scraping.
- Safe and secure.

LINK - UP: Make new connections. TubeChat facilitates real-life conversations and meetings in areas where other popular social networking or dating apps just don’t work.

CHAT: Group chat safely completely ad free with up to 10 other users nearby. We don’t reveal your identity unless you want to. Maintain your mystery by not updating your profile picture.

PLAY: With TubeChat you will be able play classic games such as I Spy with new games added as we develop the product. Got a favourite game? Let us know and we’ll see what we can do.

Don’t be shy – use TubeChat to break the ice with fellow commuters. Download it now and help us revolutionise commuting for Londoners.

Of course we’re new and need time for the number of users to grow. To help us please get friends you travel with, members of your family or groups of you going out together to download the app as well. That way you always chat on the Tube even when you can’t sit near to one another.

And, to increase the app experience, we’ve enabled the app to work even when you are above ground like in a café, at a conference or attending a festival – in fact anywhere there’s low or no connectivity and you feel like a chat.
