These users have some things in common, namely that they are really close to each other, and also that they are taking part in the same event. Of course, AirTalk is not restricted to big events. The app can be used at any time. For instance, if you are walking through Central Park in New York, you could login to the app, and send a shout out to anybody within a 100m radius.

It has been integrated with Twitter, which means that you are able to share AirTalk posts with those that follow you on Twitter. Social media plays such a major part in many of our lives, and so integrating various platforms is becoming more and more important. The app has been designed in such a way that the user interface is really clean and simple, and as such is quick to learn and to operate.

There are distinct advantages of this app to certain business owners or sales people. Users can send details about a specific product to other users within the 100m radius. This does have its benefits, but might also become an irritation to some users if this system to abused or utilized too often.
As mentioned, one of the definite key features of this app is that you do not need a data connection in order to use it. This means that users will not use any data while making use of AirTalk.
