The aim of the project is to build a simple client on a mobile phone that allows a user to list other users in a defined proximity who meet certain criteria or preferences previously specified by the user. The user will then have the ability to retrieve profiles and message these users. The overall goal of the project is that the client runs on low cost smart phones and is not expensive to run. Usage costs are kept low by minimising the size of protocol data that is continually sent as location updates and responses. In addition, all communication takes place over IRC which is a fairly light weight protocol.

Current status of the project

A basic working client exists which has been built as a plugin to XChat. The intention is to replace this dependancy with a platform specific interface, for example GTK+ on an OpenMoko phone.
