How we came up with this idea?

Me and my friend both were thinking of building a product from a long time. Making something which can be used in daily life, One day, while travelling in DTC bus, I got too bored talking with Sujeet. So I asked him what if could connect with these people without revealing my identity and without the internet.

Then we came up with this idea of making a chat app which lets you connect with strangers and friends both which are near you but with a twist that user didn't need to have any internet connection.

So Near-peer allows you to chat with known and unknown persons without any internet requirement. It is completely independent of your phone network. Also, it does not need any manual connection, you just have to open Near Peer App and you are ready to chat with friends and strangers near you.

Here is the Screenshots of the application.
