Peer to peer (p2p) proximity SDK for iOS and Android
p2pkit allows apps to understand their proximity to nearby devices without the need to install beacons or rely on battery draining GPS. Instead, p2pkit uses several radio technologies like Wi-Fi and BLE, which already exist on every modern smartphone. p2pkit is compatible with iOS and Android, is very lightweight and hardly consumes any battery.
You can configure p2pkit to beacon information (payload) to nearby devices, which will discover each other and receive this information when in physical proximity.
Nearby devices are notified when a proximity event takes place and receive the identifier, payload (optionally) and range estimation (when supported). Your app can then respond to this event in any way it chooses. For example, it can show a notification with a voucher for a coffee, the details of an ongoing delivery or the profile of that person you just met. When nearby devices update their payload or the range estimation changes, you are again notified and able to take action. p2pkit is truly flexible!

SDK for Android
With p2pkit, your app can discover nearby devices, estimate their range and seamlessly broadcast content to them.
p2pkit is cross platform! It's compatible with iOS and Android and supports several radio technologies (BLE, WiFi Direct). It is very lightweight and hardly consumes any battery.
You can configure p2pkit to beacon arbitrary information (discovery info) to nearby devices who will discover each other and receive this information - even in areas with no internet or cell coverage.
