Hey,

I want to develop an app that allows users to identify and communicate with each other in a closed environment like a bar or a nightclub.

How would I configure iBeacon to facilitate this? Would I have to utilise physical beacons like Estimote's, or could user data just be passed directly between phones using Bluetooth? What are the benefits of using hardware beacons?

Also, what is iBeacons maximum range? (both from phone to phone and when using hardware beacons in the equation)

many thanks
