How does it work?

DROID Zap uses your GPS, WiFi, and your network location to determine where you are when you send the picture or video.  It then uses a matchmaking algorithm to match your location to people the people who want to receive the content.  The content is available to people around up to 1000 feet.  The accuracy improves based on your GPS, WiFi, and network location accuracy. 


Can I restrict who can receive my Zaps?

If you want to restrict who can receive your photos, you can set a PIN lock on your Zaps. This will apply a random four-digit PIN to your Zaps.  When you then send a Zap, you will see a 4-digit PIN pop-up, tell your friends that PIN so when they attempt to receive the content they will have to enter the PIN to start the download.  Remember, only people who get the PIN from you will be able to download your photos and videos.
