Nokia launches a photo-sharing app for WP8, calls it PhotoBeamer
Nokia has added yet another app to its portfolio of WP8 exclusives. Actually, this time the app is exclusive to the Lumia 920 and 820, which is a shame, because it seems kind of cool.

Courtesy of its acquisition of imaging company Scalado, Nokia is bringing you PhotoBeamer - an innovative photo-sharing app. Here's how it works: you start PhotoBeamer on your phone, then open the PhotoBeamer.com website on whichever device you want to stream the photos to. Let's say you want to view the images on your desktop computer. So you navigate to the PhotoBeamer.com site, which will show a large QR code. You use the PhotoBeamer app on your phone to scan that QR code, and the next moment, you'll see your photos seamlessly streamed to your big desktop screen. Cool, isn't it? It seems like a really fast way to display photos on a web-connected device with a large screen.

If you own a Lumia 920 or 820, you can download PhotoBeamer here.

I hope WM and Nokia will gain the glory.

On personal note, I like Nokia build quality but WM market is too boring. Last week, I put the Lumia up for sale after a week play with it. Microsoft have a huge gap to fill in apps department, a lot game on IOS and Android free but not on WP.

To those 8X users, I hate to break it it you, but you're missing out big time! Apparently, Signature doesn't quite compare to THE Flagship Windows Phone! You had been warned :D

Photobeamer allow you to control the presentation, so the other side would see you scolling through your photos, just like a remote airplay!
