    ______________________________________________________________________________________________-
    We live in an increasingly connected world, where the connectivity of our our devices has evolved independently, and without an over-arching structure. Smartphones, tablets and personal computers, all connect, and manage those connections in different ways. Controlling those connections, sharing data between your devices, and managing your security is extremely challenging,and time consuming.
    PocketMesh makes it quick and simple.
    All your personal devices log into the PocketMesh which functions as a smart router and protection layer for all your devices. It allows you to seamlesslyshare data across all your personal devices, and can be used to store and share files instantly and directly.
    But how does that make networks personal and simple?
    We’ve talked about how PocketMesh connects your devices, but how does it connect you?
    On the outward facing side of PocketMesh, It starts by looking for a legitimate path to the internet. Once it finds those routes, it remembers them. It looks for other units in the area, and shares route path data with them. If one unit has network access, it can share that access with other pmesh units. For collaboration, you can connect to other pmesh users by entering their pmesh name and clicking a button, creating a local network with them.
    aggressively scans for legitimate routes to the internet.
    Shares routes with other pocket mesh devices.
    Automatically meshes with other pmesh units to create mesh network to create paths to the internet
    Creates personal networks with other pmesh users simply by entering their pmesh name and clicking a button
    questions :

    How will said file sharing be handled?
