Finland-based mobile phone manufacturer Nokia has announced an exclusive application just for smartphones running on Windows Phone 8, called Photobeamer. Photobeamer allows the users of Lumia 920 and 820 (powered by Windows Phone 8) to see the images in their device on a larger screen of the desktop even without connecting the two devices.
The application seems to function in a simple manner on the surface view. According to Nokia conversations, once you install the application, you can use it to view your pictures. When you open an image, you will be requested to visit photobeamer.comvia any web browser (which is not the one installed in your phone).
You now have to aim your phone camera at the QR code that shows up in the website. All you need to do next is to just tap it when it appears on your camera screen. You can now see the magic unfold. All the pictures in the device are automatically sent to photobeamer.com from where users can show the pictures to others on a bigger screen.
Even though it looks simple from the outside, there are complex processes involved. For example, the QR code is different every time you open the site. Photobeamer also facilitates fast sharing of your photos. Immediately after scanning, the images are transmitted to the site from the phone. This gives a faster performance. The pictures from the phone are streamed progressively to the website.
Photobeamer application combines the varied capabilities of Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 providing new experience for the users. The application also supports different connections like Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G.
Photobeamer is now available for download for the users of Lumia 920 and 820 from Windows Phone Store.
