Software for Beacons and The Physical Web

Currently, mobile apps on iOS (Apple) and Android support the technology required to scan and read Bluetooth Beacons.

Google Chrome for Android and Google Chrome on Chromebooks now also support the technology and it is hoped that very soon all popular mobile browsers will roll out support for the technology too.

With the above in mind, we recommend that if you wish to use Bluetooth Beacons for the general public, you do so via a custom built mobile application, we will update this site with news of support in mobile web browsers.

If you are a programmer or web developer:-

  • You can use Google Chrome for Android on mobile devices and Chrome OS on Chromebooks right now and we encourage you to do so and start testing as we believe that when available to the general public, this will change the world forever!
  • We have beacons for sale on this site for you to start experimenting with too, check out the Hardware section on this site for more information or to get hold of beacons now.
  • If you are already developing apps and software for The Physical Web we’d love to hear from you and we’ll happily help promote your software/service on this website – just get in touch with us using any method you like on our Contact page.

If you’re not a programmer or web developer but would like to be an early adopter of this technology:-

  • Get in touch with us to discuss options for early adopters
  • Speak to your web developer or application developer
  • Put your web developer or application developer in touch with us so we can discuss the technical requirements and help them plan a system for you.
  • Get in touch with one of the Solution Providers that we already work with on our Solutions page.
