Bleep now support offline messages (not really)

BitTorrent Inc. announced today that their p2p based group messaging app Bleep now support offline messaging.

There is a problem here though. The messages are not exactly sent when the other party is offline. The app basically stores it.

It is sent when both the parties are online next.

The company said:

Today, we’re proud to bring basic Offline Messaging support to Bleep. Now, a user can send messages to an offline user, and the message will be sent once both users are online again. Bleep doesn’t rely on servers to send communications, so these messages live on the device of the sender until a connection is made. This ensures that offline messaging remains secure and away from unauthorized viewers.

In addition, this new release includes stability improvements, and will enable users to see more of their friends online. We have also made improvements to reduce data usage, but Bleep is still not ideal for mobile environments on cellular data. We also listened to your feedback about our UI: Bleep is now easier to use than ever.
