How Bluchat works:
When you launch Bluchat, the app immediately begins scanning the area and provides a list of discovered iPhone or iPod 2G devices also running Bluchat.
Selecting a listed name will instantly send a request to the user asking them if they would like to chat.
When the recipient accepts the invitation, both parties are instantly connected and can begin chatting.

I can see this being usefull in a classroom setting... but other then that, why not SMS? However, this looks interesting and I'm going to download it. Good work and if the app runs like the SS say it will, then it sounds pretty cool.
