App Description

This application is designed for users to broadcast their messages to the public and receive messages from other users nearby . The main design is to allow users to chat in the public anonymously under aliases.


  • You can receive message from people within a range you specify
  • You can set alias without the need to log in
  • You can set GPS; mock GPS is indicated by *
  • When you post a message, unless you turn on “Reveal Distance to Me,” which is set OFF by default, receivers will not see distance or direction to you

p.s. please refrain from ads spamming, we will later provide special channel for posting ads
