Once downloaded, UbiMessenger does not require network or server access. It is suitable for close proximity communications for mobile social or work groups requiring communication services independent of network availability - for example: at a crowded sports venue, within group leisure activities or on a worksite. Use of the application is not access or time limited by any network and incurs no network costs or use of airtime. During UbiMessenger operation the use of all cellular and other device services are maintained and can be accessed by the user.
Download and install UbiMessenger on each Smartphone within the user group. Once the user downloads the application, a message pops up on the notification bar confirming that the application has been successfully installed. In order to name his/her device, the user has to click on Settings>More>About device>device name and then type the name.
UbiMessenger offers the convenience and cost saving of using smart devices for both local on-site and global cellular communications. UbiMessenger uses technology developed by UbiTech (www.ubitechit.com) to enable mobile/cellular devices to communicate directly with each other through the creation of a cooperative wireless network using voice, video and data while requiring no network infrastructure.
