Nokia Releases PhotoBeamer App for Lumia Phones
Nokia today announced a new application for the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 called PhotoBeamer. PhotoBeamer lets people more easily send photos from their device to a large screen for sharing. Lumia device owners interested in sharing their photos must install the app on their phone and use the app to scroll through their photo gallery. Then they need to open PhotoBeamer.com on a PC or other device. The web site reveals a large QR code. The phone-based app can scan the QR code and then automatically uploads the selected images from the phone to the web site, where they can be viewed on the PC or display. PhotoBeamer works over 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi. The technology that makes the app work was acquired by Nokia when it purchased Scalado.
