Range for functional messaging through Bluetooth.


WayPoint wanted to develop an app that would allow concert-goers to engage with one another and also have all useful information about the event at the tip of their fingers.

  • They wanted to build an open platform to organize, manage and attend the music festival all the while engaging the users pre, post and during the same.
  • They wanted to offer real time messaging with friends without any internet connectivity.
  • They also wanted to give users the ability to get directions to a friend or any POI using compass with distance to walk, and festival information at fingertips including schedule and artist info.


We started with a comprehensive assessment of the code they already had and made sure it was following the standard architecture patterns along with other software protocols.

  • We built an iOS app using Swift and Android app using Kotlin. We leveraged native features like bluetooth, compass, GPS, etc; to provide a seamless experience to the users.
  • We used the Distance Matrix API by Google Map to design an built-in-compass for the map to enable tracking of friends and point of interests.
  • With the use of ‘Bridgefy’ SDK for offline messaging, we implemented chat feature to deliver messages via intermediary devices connected via Bluetooth.
