Nokia Launches Magical Slideshow App PhotoBeamer for Lumia Phones

Earlier this year, we shared an amazing iPhone app by imaging company Scalado called PhotoBeamer. The app allows you to quickly run a slideshow of your Camera Roll photos on any device that can load the PhotoBeamer website, simply by pointing your phone at that display. One month later, Nokia acquired Scalado and began folding the small company’s projects into its own software. Now, Nokia has launched a repackaged version of PhotoBeamer exclusively for its Lumia phones.

In case you didn’t see our previous coverage, here’s a short teaser video that gives you an idea of how the original app worked (and how magical it is):

Basically, all you need to do is load up PhotoBeamer.com on any other smartphone or computer. This brings up a special QR code just for you:

All you need to do then is load up the app and point your phone’s camera at the QR code. The website will establish a link with your phone, and begin running a slideshow through the browser window. Flicking your photos back and forth on your phone will change the images on the slideshow.

This can be used for everything from sharing a snapshot with your friend’s phone to running a large slideshow using a projector.

If you own a Lumia 920 or Lumia 820 phone, you can pick up the app for free over in the Windows Phone App Store (it has fantastic customer reviews). As is expected, the app is no longer available for iOS devices.
