In these days of uncertain net connectivity (you never know when the Government will clamp down!) this app is a welcome addition to communicate with friends and family. This app allows you to communicate with others (who have the same app installed) even when there is no internet connection. It communicates via Bluetooth (both your Bluetooth should on) upto a distance of 100 metres.it is ideal for music festivals, sports stadiums, rural communities, natural disasters, travelling abroad, and much more.
You can use Bridgefy as one to one communication directly, if you are within 100 metres of each other. If not, you could still communicate, if there are other Bridgefy users in between. In such cases a mesh mode is automatically created and the message can move through the intermediate users to reach the final recipient. The intemediate users cannot read the message but are used as part of the mesh for communication.
In case of natural calamities, you can also use the broadcast mode – i.e. send the message to all within the range at the same time, even if they are not in your contacts list.
It is always wise to be prepared – what do you think?

Did you know that you can send confidential, self-destructive mails with Gmail? In the last line of your Compose window, you will find this icon to Turn Confidential Mode On / Off. Once you switch on the Confidential Mode, the recipients won’t have the option to forward, copy, print, or download this email.
You can now set the expiration date of this email, in days, weeks, months or years. Once you set this, the email will automatically vanish from the inbox of the recipient after the prescribed time.
There’s more. You can even send a password by SMS, so that only the recipient or person who has the password, can open the email.
How’s that for confidential mail?
