App description: Steal from strangers. Steal from friends. Steal in a school, at work, on a plane or deep beneath the earth's surface.

The important thing is to steal *before* you're stolen from.

...Hopefully it's obvious but you aren't stealing real money. Everyone starts with $1000 and then it's up to you to steal the rest.

PKPKT does the hard work of finding other players by detecting them using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) in the background. You do not need a data connection. It's completely off the grid.

The point of the game is to collect the most money (duh), but once the initial theft occurs, you can chat with your opponent by sending messages over bluetooth. These messages are completely private as they are not stored on any server.

"PKPKT is one of the first games to really take advantage of [Bluetooth Low Energy] technology in a natural way." - The Verge

"This game turns Bluetooth into a high-stakes stealing match." - GigaOm

Looks awesome, but it's probably going to be months before I encounter anyone, if ever.

Think it looks pretty dull. Description doesn't really explain how the main 'battle' happens

This is such a cool concept. I hope lots of review sites publicise it so it gets popular enough to work.. I can't see it happening at the moment.. There's probably 3 people in the whole of Australia with the app :/

Waiting on: Tengami, Heroki, Gelato mania 2, Feed me oil 2, Cut the rope 2
