BitTorrent Inc. is expanding the trial of its server-less peer-to-peer messaging app Bleep to pretty much anyone who wants to try it. Bleep entered an open alpha period late Wednesday with apps for Android (Google Play), Windows, and Mac. BitTorrent says an iOS version is coming at a later date.
Now Bleep will only work over Wi-Fi connections.
Another drawback on Android is that you can't yet transfer your identity from a mobile device to a PC. But you can transfer from a PC to an Android smartphone or tablet via your private key stored in Settings > Add New Device.
In other words, if you're planning on using this app on both Android and Windows or Mac, make sure you sign-up with your identity on a PC first.
