Senario: in case of a major fallout of the internet/phone service for whatever reason.
I have a public node in a central location, and posted a physical QR sign for logging in to that node. (could do that for each node in the mesh) How can people connect if there is no internet to download the app?, can multiple people connect to a single node via bluetooth?
Ideally the app should be downloadable from the device via bluetooth is this possible with current hardware?(I use TTgo).
Also, an in-app bridge function to the internet would be useful, so in a spotty internet coverage area, messages could be routed through the first phone that has connection to the net.(I am thinking external apps as well, FB,twitter etc. low bandwidth chat apps, but this may be a can of privacy worms)
Alternatively, A PC client that can act as a bridge to the internet, that can send/recieve from its connected accounts, maybe via IFTTT, to make it simple to implement. I’d love to be able to send automated info from RSS or such services to the network. weather reports, Public service announcements, emergency information etc.
