Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 18, 2014
Splum for iOS® was released on the App Store today. Splum is a micro-social networking app that uses Apple’s new iBeacons ® technology (Bluetooth Low Energy) to discover potential matches nearby. It will run in the background and notify the user as soon as a match is in the same room. The user can request to chat with their match and exchange photos while both receive each other’s micro-location updates. Splum protects privacy as it is completely off the grid and requires no signup or login.
Whether you are at a bar, a concert, or even traveling inside an airplane with no service, Splum lets you find people available to chat and meet who are right there, right now.
*** How Splum Works ***
- Make sure your bluetooth is turned on.
- Launch Splum and quickly fill in your personal info and match preferences. You are set.
