<p>By default, these messages go to any other Tin Can phone. Each phone with the app acts as a signal redistribution point, but users do not need to see each message, meaning there is the possibility to configure the app so that only selected users view the messages. If a message cannot reach its destination by "jumping" from phone to phone, it will not be able to receive it.</p><div class=

True, at first Tin Can may not sound like a very useful tool, as we are used to sending messages anywhere in the world within seconds with apps like WhatsApp. However, there are situations where networks may be overloaded or simply not functioning, as in major natural disasters. The app could be useful at such times, where only the handsets will be sufficient to ensure communication between people. Anyway, Mark Katakowski, creator of the app, v utility for Tin Can not only in specific cases like these. It sees users from around the world using the app at shows, sporting events, festivals and other places where internet access may be limited.

TinCan is available for Android and will soon win a version for Windows Phone. The iOS version is expected to take a few more months, as the App Store has very strict rules about the security of user data. And you, what did you think of Tin Can?
