The last months have been pretty busy – we added online play functionality to our iOS App of Schnopsn, have a new game called „Rank Master“ almost finished (more about it soon) and – most importantly: We are developing a major update for BeamAir
We want to shift the focus of BeamAir – apart from photo sharing – to turning BeamAir into the ultimate mobile presentation software, redefining the way presentations are done and making ad-hoc presentations possible anywhere, anytime to anyone with only seconds of setup – basically, just telling the viewers to enter the session at http://www.beamair.com and start presenting.
Our mantra / tagline will be „Mobile presenting“ – that should sum up what BeamAir is all about.
We believe it is very useful in a business and also educational environment – it will also be feasible to schedule presentations with a pre-reserved session ID and invite participants to this presenation in advance. Moreover, a telephone conference can be attached to any BeamAir session. We also integrate Dropbox in order to get documents from there and make it possible to save pdf documents and presentations directly in BeamAir. This should make it a lot easier to access your presentation material. We have to admit, the „Open with“ option to get PDFs into BeamAir 1.1. is not very comfortable at the moment.
But the (as we think) coolest feature will be the live whiteboard drawing – to add another level of interaction to your presentation.
We also made it to the final round of an Austrian startup contest, but unfotuately did not win against the – also really great – ideas of the other startups. However, we felt honored to be invited with our app in the first place- it shows that people consider BeamAir a good idea and this encouraged us to further pursue the development and marketing of BeamAir.
And, we also made a video for the contest (as good as we could at least), it is a preview for the next version and here it is:
The final version of BeamAir 1.5. which will be released in November might look a bit different, as apparently we are also optimizing its look and feel for iOS7. And we have quite a lot of ideas for Version 1.6. – and if 1.5. goes well, we will also consider doing an Android Version of BeamAir.
