Connect two phones

The app I wish to make needs to allows the user to see other users of the same app in a tiny distance. Almost like a navigation app but it’s more like you can see if you’re friends are nearby. Is this possible?.

To get the conversation started: I know Codeless Academy’s Native App plugin allows you to get the geolocation of the device and send it to bubble.

From there, I’m not sure how the geolocation data is formatted in bubble or how it would need to be processed to determine if they are nearby each other. Maybe someone else with experience can jump in on that one.

A limitation of that plugin is it can’t access the location while the app is not open (The user has to be using it).

I hope others share some good solutions!
