Major Suggestions

I think we should go with a wi-fi network route, not blue tooth.

Nouman Tahir you agree? Or are there even better ideas here?

Even if they are not connected via Wifi we can still know who is nearby using location service and cellular network, and sharing details is not a problem at all, I would even say it ll be better compared to sharing data over Bluetooth. Another limitation with BT I faced was iOS users wont be able to share anything with Android users and vice versa because weird Apple policies but with cellular network we can take care for that as well.

Yet Bluetooth is still a very good way of know who is nearby precisely, perhaps we can somehow integrate that as well to make things more fun.

agree Nouman Tahir

Stephan Fisher we should start to adapt the user experience around this concept and update your wireframes to reflect this.

Sounds good location seems like the better technology, but will users need to have good cellular service to meet each other if this is the case? I don’t believe my wireframes reflect bluetooth, but I’ll change whatever is necessary. I’m putting a link to them in our group chat, let me know what I should change in order to show that a location service is being used.

If your primary market is gonna be U.S. I am sure we wont have much trouble with the network technology as I believe there is 3G internet services almost at every good location, restaurant etc yet I am not sure how many do use it regularly but even here in my country every other person have their 3G turned on almost all the time so numbers should be good there as well.

but if we are looking at precise numbers, I would say the kind of application we are targetting even a 1Mbps bandwidth will suffice, honestly.
