New social distancing app needs to be given away by creators in hopes of release

After two months of tirelessly building an app to help people maintain social distance, the team at Regulr is giving away the iOS app they created to any organization that can take it and release it to the public. Why? Because if they don't, it will only help a fraction of the people that it could.

Regulr is a tech startup founded in Richmond, VA by Stephen Dodge with the mission of creating the next generation of customer experiences at brick and mortar businesses. They built a mobile app and business platform, ran a successful pilot program, and we're gearing up to launch when the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

Like so many others, the team wanted to do whatever they could to help. They couldn't make PPE, but they did have proprietary technology that could detect when another device was nearby that they've used to empower customers to notify businesses of their preferences and needs when they walk through the door.

In just 5 weeks, they quickly repurposed and reworked their underlying Bluetooth technology. They partnered with several local agencies who wanted to be a part of the new project and designed a proximity alert called Distance to tell a user when another device was less than 6 feet away without passing information between devices or tracking locations, and successfully launched the app for Android devices.

In hopes of helping the most people and businesses possible, Regulr has decided to give away the hard work they put into the iOS app to the right healthcare-related or government organization so that Apple will approve and release the completed iOS version of Distance. Regulr still plans to add new COVID features to their existing platform, like contactless payments, real-time streaming data, capacity tracking, contact tracing, and virtual lines, but they hope that with an innovative and far-reaching partner, Distance will soon be widely accessible to help everyone through this incredibly difficult crisis.

People can download the Distance app onto their mobile devices and utilize it in any area or space of concern as the app allows for flexibility and real-time proximity insights. It uses Bluetooth signals that the team engineered to alert users by vibrating whenever their device gets within 6 feet of another device that also has the app installed.

To make the app available on iOS devices, Apple Inc. wants the company to find a large, institutional partner to introduce it, such as a government agency, health care provider or a university.
