Nintendo's Pictochat and other mesh features for the DS series are pretty great. I'd love to see more apps for Android and iOS that prioritize local interaction. You don't have to be on the same device, but you have to be in proximity.

And it would be even better if they actually used mesh networking, not just geolocating. Airdrop, but for games and communication.

Perhaps iMessage could have a peer-to-peer mode?

@jackivan88 It jused to have local network discovery with mDNS iirc, so somewhat 'peer2peer'
