Photos may be the most shareable items around, and there are tons of ways to share photos with everyone. There are fewer options to share private photo messages, especially when you want to share full resolution images. Enter BeamIt, which comes from the makers of Cooliris, an app that presents photos beautifully with a 3D carousel view. BeamIt focuses on private messaging to send photos to specific people, or groups. You can send full resolution photos, and share tons at the same time with effortless selection, and speedy sending.
Once photos are sent, the people that you share to can comment, and like photos like a social sharing app, but in private form. The basic functionality has obvious value, and then there are simply a ton of smaller features like the ability to send multiple photos to separate groups at the same time. The app also lets you unsend photos in case you share something accidentally, and you can select photos offline to send when you’re back connected. As you would expect from Cooliris Inc., the app has a brilliant photo viewer allowing you to swipe to look through multiple images right in line with the conversation view with the Cooliris 3D effect. That same effect is also used when browsing your own photo library to select photos that you want to share. Another valuable addition is that the app uses e-mail, so others don’t need to use the app to view your shared photos. The entire package has a particular focus that is executed extremely well.
BeamIt (Free, Universal) is a valuable utility in any easy to use form for full resolution private photo sharing.
