What it does
HatChat allows you to message or call nearby HatChatters using your phone's built in SMS and calling. When you want to chat, you simply type your message or press the call button and you will be matched up with a random nearby HatChatter. This is made possible through the TRNQL Smart People feature. Also, by using the TRNQL SDK, you can chat with people with your activity status and find HatChatters in nearby points of interest.
