Want to communicate without connectivity, Wi-Fi or otherwise Simple, just use
TextMe powered by Open Garden!
As you may have seen, Open Garden has just teamed up with TextMe. Is that just a case of the coolest cross-platform free communication app teaming up with the coolest mesh networking app you may ask? Well, that is that indeed and much more.
Let us start with TextMe, if we may. Our mission is clear, turn any connected device into a smart phone for free. Simple, you may say; alas, many a time are we blocked in our noble endeavor for lack of bandwidth, or even worse, lack of access. Yes, dear user, we know how painful it is not to be able to phone, video chat, chat, text, send IM, with TextMe when Wi-Fi is down or 3G or 4G networks are found wanting.
So we thought of something.
The dumbest smart phone (there is one, it may be from Finland) packs more bandwidth than the entire Nasa needed to send people to the Moon and back. That is what I call “too much” bandwidth, and - that is the beauty of it - most of the time, it is not being used, IT IS IDLE.
Seeing this, one company, our partner Open Garden, developed some fiendishly clever software so that idle capacity could be shared especially with Open Garden users lacking connectivity.
See? at the same time, TextMe users with (triumphant trumpets) a constitutional right to communicate for free but (boo) no connectivity and (chimes) in the other corner, (start the violins) lots of people with idle bandwidth offering it to others; (the biggest drums available) : problem solved !
So go on, download TextMe - together with Open Garden - and turn your preferred device into a free phone everywhere there is an Open Garden user near you.
