I'm co-founder of Bubble, a small start-up in SF, we're currently developing an API that enables you to :


- detect if two phones with the same app are nearby, EVEN IF THE APPS ARE IN THE BACKGROUND


- exchange data with people around you


- send push notifications to users nearby.



Simple examples : 


- exchange virtual currency / objects with people around you


- automatically create a leaderboard based on the people you came across


- get a push notification if you come across someone who is playing the same game as you. (with his highscore? )




What do you think ?

We believe a lot can come from this, and we're looking for beta testers !

I would test... if it was on Android :(

This does sound extremely nice though... so good luck! :)
