I am a new to Estimote, however, I have a question about ios app development. Is it possible to have an app that detect other users nearby, who also have the app? Note that this should include the cases when the other users have the app terminated on their phone. But all users will always keep their bluetooth on. Would this involve having each iPhone work as an iBeacon and each iPhone would have its own beacon region that can detect when others are inside?
I am confused to how I implement something where I could detect nearby users, even those who do not have the same app open on their phone, but they are constantly keeping their bluetooth on.
I don’t want to use constant GPS location monitoring because that drains too much battery.
Please let me know if there are any solutions you guys can think of.
