    NOW WITH A FREE VERSION

That's right, IPADS, ANDROID TABLETS, WINDOWS TABLETS/DESKTOPS/NOTEBOOKS, SmartTvs, PS3, XBOX360, Mobile Phone and just about any device with a browser.

    Description from the Store:

    THE COOLEST AND QUICKEST WAY TO BEAM LINKS TO YOUR OTHER DEVICES

    Are you always watching videos and reading webpages/blogs etc. on your Windows Mobile?
    Do you often wish that you could read/watch your links on devices with bigger screens like tablets/desktops/laptops or smart TVs?
    But, you don't want to go through the effort of finding that specific webpage/video again?
    Well, BeamLink to the rescue!!
    All you have to do is open 'BEAMLINK.IN' on a browser and you can 'send' all kinds of links including videos from youtube etc. to it.
    NO SETUP REQUIRED! NO ADDITIONAL SOFTWARE REQUIRED!
    All you have to do is download the app to your Windows Phone.
    Steps:
    1) Copy the link you want to beam from your Windows Phone.
    2) Open the BeamLink app and use the paste option.
    3) Open beamlink.in on the target device's browser and scan the code.
    4) Voila!
    Note: You can even type a URL to beam. A history of shared URL's is maintained for easy resharing.

    lets say you are watching a video on YouTube...or maybe reading a nice article.. If you have to view it on another device.. You can either send an email to yourself , then sign in to your email and then view it. This can be a problem if you want to view it on your tv or a public pc or a friends pc .
    The next option is to share it on like fb or somethin.. Again these will involve logging in and stuff.. Note typing in an Xbox browser or a ps3 browser is not a pleasant experience.
    With this app you just have to goto beamlink.in from any device.. No log in .. No set up nothin.. Copy and paste the link in the app, the scanner pops up, scan the code on beamlink.in and the link is shared instantly.. If you share a YouTube video then the format is automatically converted.. As in from the mobile link to a desktop link. So if you share it to an iPad or an android device.. The default YouTube app instantly opens up. Try using it.

    Thank you. And update will be available in 24hrs, youtube changed a few of their mobile links format, fixed it for both the paid and the free version. Sorry the update took so long.. Microsoft takes around 5 days to approve the updates!

    YUP! but I don't know how photobeamer works.. as in the technical aspect.. I just found QR codes to be really cool and the whole concept of 'sending it with your camera' is awesome lol

    Try using the app and see if it is indeed easier. cause I think it will be easier than onenote... u can send it to your smart tv or to an xbox360 browser or to any other gaming console browser. What about if you want to beam it to a pc/mobile device which does not belong to you.. which does not have one note set up... or mayb u don't want to log in with your password.. try using it once

    Thank you and I'm sorry to hear that. Can you tell me what you couldn't understand. Was it the description in the store or the help tab in the app. And what is buggy? Is it the YouTube links? Cause I have issued that update should be live in a few hours. You can email me directly from the app for any suggestions, bugs, etc

    Ok.

    First. When you run app and read how to use it, sometimes its hard to understand what exactly you should do. At this moment I am talking as user not developer (I am developing software for WP too). Users of smartphones hate to think a lot about how to use app. They need clear and simply instruction. So you should better consider about it.

    And two times it crashed when I pasted link from IE to it. Cant remember what is was.

    Overall idea is good and you even can add webbrowser into it and beam links directly from it.

    Yeah mayb ill update the help section. crashed as in as soon as you pasted the link? I mean any other info will be really helpful. for the links already beamed it lets you look at a preview of the page in the app itself before re sending it. About a full fledged webbrowser in the app I think its a great idea but I don't wanna bite more than I can chew

    That seems to be mayb a one time thing. Anyways I'll look into it. No one else who has used it has had this issue. Please tell me if it occurs again via email from the app or something.

    I have migrated to a better server to handle the increased users. QR CODE ERROR will occur for a few hours. I'm working on getting it up and running. Sorry for the delay.


    ****** NOW WORKING ******
