Add Friends On Facebook With Bluetooth On iOS Devices
Remember the times when people utilized to meet new people at a bar and exchange phone numbers of email addresses? Well, in case the release of AddFriend for iOS is anything to go by, that exchange of numbers/email is currently being replaced by adding each other over on your world’s biggestsocial network Facebook. Test it out after the jump.
AddFriend is known as a port of the original Android app that makes use of NFC together with the same basic functionality: having the ability to quickly add new people on Facebookby enabling you to keep your devices in close proximity.
From App Store:
You make a new friend, at a party, a diner, a bar, a conference …
Add him/her to Facebook via mobile … instantaneously … even offline
We’ve tested the app on an iPhone 4S and may make certain that it works as advertised.AddFriends is very very easy to set up: you login for your Facebook account, authorize the app to post to profile, discover a individual who has AddFriends on their device and, once you’re close enough the fact that devices discover each other on Bluetooth, you are able to tap their name and instantaneously become friends within the online-world. If you’re already added, a post is published on your news feed telling me the two of you “high-fived” one another in physical lifewith AddFriend for iPhone. Lastly,you will be able to still use the app if you don’t have internet connectivity. You are able to later access offline-events from History.
We mentioned two limitations/pre-requisites that AddFriend had within its Android version: firstly, you’ve had to have Facebook’s native app installed and secondly, have a very NFC-enabled smartphone (which is certainly still a rarity). The very first pre-requisite is still there on the iOS version, however the second one, thankfully, isn’t. AddFriend for iOS uses Bluetooth rather then NFC, certainly the reason why the app works numerous iOS devices: iPhone 3GS/4/4S, iPod touch 4G and iPad 2 on iOS 4.0 and then upwards.
