Should I integrate the Bridgefy SDK into my mobile app?

The Bridgefy SDK is a highly-versatile tool, that can solve problems for all kinds of companies. Some kinds of apps that can benefit from working without Internet are:

· Games
· Social media
· Natural disaster
· Large events (musical, sports)
· Education

And much more!
Not all apps are compatible with the Bridgefy SDK. For example, an app that is made for people to communicate across very large distances, might not benefit from the Bridgefy SDK. Another example is an app that focuses on hosting things on the cloud, such as YouTube or Dropbox. Please fill out this 4-question form to find out!

What's the difference between the Bridgefy SDK and the Bridgefy Messaging App?

How many devices need to have access to the Intenet for a Mesh Network to work?

None! Mesh networks can be 100% offline. Literally, all devices can be on airplane mode with Bluetooth on, and they can keep sharing content uninterruptedly. Optionally, developers can choose to implement offline networks or hybrid networks, which do use some devices’ Internet.

What kind of file sizes can you share using Bridgefy SDK?

Bridgefy currently works using Bluetooth Low-Energy and Wi-Fi Direct, which means there is a large range of options regarding packet types. Text, small files, small images, prompts, triggers, locations, and some types of payments are supported. You can also transfer larger files, but the reliability of the network is decreased because they take longer to send. Read more specific information about package sizes on the developer console FAQ after you log in.
