Meet our new Stanford interns!

Here at Cooliris, we love our college interns for the energy and fresh ideas they bring to the team. As we kick off the fall season and the new school year, we would like to introduce the new interns joining us from Stanford. Welcome to the team!

Ashley

"Hi everybody! My name is Ashley Shelley Grossman and I am a new intern at Cooliris/BeamIt! I added my middle name because most of my friends call me Shelley since it’s close to Ashley, but still something different. I am from Santa Monica, California and I am a senior at Stanford University. I am majoring in Science, Technology & Society with a focus in information technology, media, and society and I am minoring in Psychology. I play water polo at school and am a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. In my free time I love to tie dye clothing and hang out with my friends since I’m an only child.

I am most interested in the marketing and product management here at Cooliris and BeamIt. I have really enjoyed testing out the product and examining the effects it has on its users. I am also very excited to keep meeting other employees and working with them to make the product the best it can be!”

"I’m a sophomore at Stanford and have grown up in the Bay Area for most of my life. Although still undeclared, I’m currently pursuing a joint major in CS+English, and outside classes, I’m a news editor for The Stanford Daily and a section leader for the University’s introductory CS 106 courses. In fact, I first learned about Cooliris through an article I was writing for The Daily. During my time as an intern, I hope to learn more about the design and development process of an app/product as well as gain technical new skills and HCI experience. In general, I’m really excited to be a part of the welcoming, close-knit Cooliris community and can’t wait to get started!"

Olivia

"Hi, I’m Olivia Johnson and very excited to start working at Cooliris! Having spent most of my childhood in Germany, I am always looking to find new and better ways to communicate and stay close with people across any distance. Being passionate about art and design, Cooliris is the perfect place for me to explore my interests, help improve messaging capabilities, and gain a better understanding of start-up businesses. I am looking forward to working with fun and intelligent people and learning a little bit about everything from marketing, analytics, design to business development. I am majoring in Economics and German Literature and Culture at Stanford and enjoy being outdoors, playing beach volleyball and tennis, and spending time with family and friends."

"I am a senior at Stanford University studying Computer Science. Growing up in Sacramento, California, I’ve been a longtime basketball fan and hope to work on bridging the gap between technology and sports. I’m especially interested in learning web development at Cooliris and helping develop the web interface for the BeamIt App."

  • #BeamItTips: Admin Controls!

    Lots of users have been asking us for the ability to manage the members in their groups. With the latest version of BeamIt, now you can!

    The creator of a group is automatically the group admin, and has the power to remove members from the group or give admin control to other members. To manage your group, go to your Group Details page, which you can access from the top right of your group conversation. From here, you can tap on any member name to promote them to admin or remove them from your group. It’s that easy!

    These extra management controls for your groups make it easy to keep groups current, whether someone is no longer on your sports or work team and you want to remove them from the group, or if you just accidentally added the wrong person to a group.

    We’re always excited to hear feedback from our users about how we can make the BeamIt visual messaging experience even better! Drop us a line at team@beamitapp.com.

  • Celebrating 150 Stanford Interns in 8 Years!

    At Cooliris, we strive to provide opportunities for students to gain work experience in a startup environment. Ever since we founded Cooliris in Silicon Valley in 2006, our close proximity to Stanford and our hands-on environment has allowed us to work alongside many talented Stanford interns. And this summer, we hit 150! Incredibly, over the past eight years, we have already worked with a total 150 different Stanford interns. This summer, we had four Stanford interns who not only allowed us reach this new threshold but who also helped us out tremendously in a variety of ways. Before they leave Cooliris and return to school, we decided to ask them six questions so you can get to know each of them. In the following interviews, they’ll share why they chose to work at Cooliris, which projects have been the most memorable, and what they will take away from their summer internship experience!

    1. What year are you at Stanford? What is your major?

    Senior, B.S. Science, Technology, and Society (STS) planning to concentrate in Human Development and Design

    2. How long have you been at Cooliris? Do you plan on continuing to work here throughout the school year?

    I’ve been here since the beginning of this past summer, and hopefully I can continue interning with the design team at Cooliris, depending on how much time my class schedule allows me (I have quite a heavy class load to look forward to!).

    3. What have you mostly been working on here? (Engineering, Marketing, Design, etc.)

    Design

    4. Any specific or memorable features/projects/tasks you have worked on?

    I’ve worked on understanding a user’s experience with the layout of current and potential features of the BeamIt app. I worked directly with Michael, Head of Design and a great mentor.

    5. Why did you choose to work at Cooliris?

    Looking for internships this past academic year, I knew that I wanted to work for a startup in San Francisco. As there are handfuls of startups in this area, it was actually difficult to find an idea I truly believed in. I am fortunate to have found Cooliris—from my first interview and first peek at the BeamIt app (at that time unreleased), I was drawn to the company’s environment as well as the purpose of the app, especially since I’m a big fan of photography and simple, yet delightful designs.

    6. Anything specific that you’ve learned this summer that you plan on utilizing in the future?

    The past many weeks have taught me even more about the Adobe Suite, wireframing and prototyping, and more broadly what it’s like to work at a startup. My advice: if you’re in the process of switching majors (like me), a startup is a great place to learn quickly and really dive into your new interest!

    Shayne

    Two months during the summer. And yes, I will be returning!

    3. What have you mostly been working on here? (Engineering, Marketing, Design, etc.)

    Back End Engineering (programming in Scala) and Product Management

    4. Any specific features/projects/tasks you have worked on that we could mention?

    I have worked on a lot of email notifications and reminders, server restart performance optimization, management and utilization of server monitoring data (varZ’s), looking into new feature possibilities and prioritizations (such as for iOS8), researching product development strategies (ie phone number integration).

    5. Why did you choose to work at Cooliris?

    Great team. Lots to learn from mentors.

    6. Anything specific that you’ve learned this summer that you plan on utilizing in the future?

    I learned a whole new programming language, how to more efficiently manage and organize tasks, and how to make great coffee!

    Jenna

    1. What year are you at Stanford? What is your major?

    Sophomore. Still undeclared, but interested in one of Stanford’s many interdisciplinary majors involving human behavior.

    2. How long have you been at Cooliris? Do you plan on continuing to work here throughout the school year?

    Two months, started at the beginning of the summer. Yes, I hopefully will continue working part time in the fall - it all depends on my schedule and how much time I have on my hands!

    3. What have you mostly been working on here?

    I have primarily worked in Marketing, Community Outreach, and the management of BeamIt and Cooliris’ social media sites.

    4. Any specific features/projects/tasks you have worked on? (Engineering, Marketing, Design, etc.)

    I’ve created and written new sequences of Cooliris blog posts, helped develop BeamIt’s marketing strategies, and reached out to new user groups.

    5. Why did you choose to work at Cooliris?

    The welcoming, intern-friendly environment definitely made me feel like Cooliris was the place for me! Plus, they are very open to giving people with little experience a chance to learn and take on responsibility.

    6. Anything specific that you’ve learned this summer that you plan on utilizing in the future?

    Among many new skills, I’ve learned the basics of Photoshop, how to market to a wide variety of audiences, and I also greatly improved my writing ability - not to mention I’ve mastered all the ins and outs of Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and Instagram! Having no prior business experience, I’ve also learned valuable lessons about what it takes to run a company and the vitality of working with a diverse team to produce an end product.

    Erin

    1. What year are you at Stanford? What is your major?

    Junior, Computer Science (concentrating in Human Computer Interaction)

    2. How long have you been at Cooliris? Do you plan on continuing to work here throughout the school year?

    I started at Cooliris in April through the Stanford Women in Business (SWIB) “springternship” program. I’m not a SWIB member, but the springternship program was open to all Stanford students. I decided to continue working for Cooliris over the summer. I might work here during the school year, but it depends on student obligations. But, I love it here. So hopefully it works out!

    3. What have you mostly been working on here? (Engineering, Marketing, Design, etc.)

    While I was part of the springternship program, I mostly did marketing tasks. I helped with many of the bug bashes and helped draft different use cases for the app. I worked a little on blogger outreach and sorority outreach as well. Once the summer began, I started with web tasks. Prior to the app launch, I helped prepare the BeamIt site. After the app launch, I began working on the styling for the BeamIt web application. Basically, I worked on turning the designers’ photoshop drafts into the code necessary to actually produce them. So, in short, I guess you could call it Engineering and Design!

    4. Are there any specific features/projects/tasks you have worked on?

    Specifically, I worked on the “about” page on the BeamIt website as well as some of the features on BeamIt’s new web app. I also made the welcome page of the web app, which is the first thing a new user sees if they don’t own the app - which is pretty cool and exciting!

    5. Why did you choose to work at Cooliris?

    I chose to work at Cooliris because they promised me an experience where I could learn a little bit of everything. A little CS, a little design, a little marketing, and a whole lot of startup life. And they delivered!

    6. Anything you’ve learned this summer that you plan on utilizing in the future?

    I’ve learned a lot about startup life, which is always useful in Silicon Valley. Also, I learned a few new programming languages. The experience as a whole was definitely the best takeaway.

    Stay tuned to get to know more interns and their stories!

  • My Story as an Intern: Behind the Red Door

    At Cooliris, we strive to provide opportunities for students to gain work experience in a startup environment. Each of our interns have their own story about their experience at Cooliris. One of our interns is Trisha, an incoming senior in high school. Here is her story.

    image

                                        Trisha (right) and her younger sister Saisha (left)

    The bright red door that marks the entrance to Cooliris, somewhat obscured by shadows at first sight, stood before me like the daunting threshold into the corporate arena, an unfamiliar world of business professionals in action. It took my sister Saisha, an incoming sophomore two years younger than me, and I twenty minutes to find the location after circling the streets aimlessly, although thankfully, we had arrived much earlier to ensure our punctuality on our first day.

    "Don’t forget to shake her hand," I reminded myself. Although I had spoken to Lucy on the phone before coming, I anticipated a rather formal rendezvous, meeting a woman in black pointed-toe high heels, blazer, and pencil skirt. Instead, when the door opened, I was greeted warmly by a young, blonde-haired woman in a beautiful floral dress. I was instantly struck by the spaciousness of the office, a walkway from the door that led to some rows of large wooden tables that spanned a majority of the space. The red and white painting scheme of the office, glass doors of the two offices in the back, and irregular bricks that lined the rightmost wall lent an avant-garde, contemporary feel to the place — an atmosphere that paralleled the progressive nature of the very conceptualization of BeamIt. It didn’t take me very long to fall in love with the culture of Cooliris, a company founded upon the basic principles of humility and rapport; the jeans, tees, sandals, and flip flops of those around me grew to become symbols of compassion and the cohesion I experienced every moment in the office.

    In retrospect, the business and technology skills that we learned as interns at Cooliris were remarkable — coding, marketing, development, etc. However, more importantly, I experienced a level of personal growth I had never anticipated. The “people skills” that we can take away and apply to our lives on a daily basis, whether it be at school, with friends, or in the professional world — resonate as perhaps the most valuable element we developed over the weeks. Working at Cooliris has been an incredible journey, and I am certain, given the endurance of the inherent values the company cherishes, Cooliris has yet to enjoy its most prosperous days.

    Stay tuned to get to know more interns and their stories!

  • #TechTips: Top 7 Ways to Conserve Your Smartphone’s Battery Life

    image

    We all know the feeling. You’re in the process of sending an important email or you’re mid-way through your set of Google maps directions when *BAM* your phone’s screen turns black signaling the end of its battery life. You think back to how your phone could have possibly used up all of its battery in such a short amount of time and you wonder what you could have done differently to make it last longer. Well, that’s the exact question we will answer for you today! We are going to share with you our top seven ways to conserve your smartphone’s battery life. When used correctly, these quick tips will stop your phone from dying on you right when you need it most!

    1. Dim Your Screen

    image

    Having a screen with a lot of brightness can significantly cut short the life of your smartphone’s battery. To dim your screen, just head over to your phone’s settings and find the category that contains the word “Brightness”. Next, slide the brightness adjuster to the left to lower the brightness. The dimmer your screen is, the longer your battery will last.

    2. Lock It or Turn It Off

    When you are not using your phone, make sure to either lock it or turn it completely off. If you aren’t planning on using your phone for a couple hours, turning it off will preserve significantly more battery than if it were just locked. However, if you will be using your phone regularly, make sure to lock it whenever it is not in use. Keeping it unlocked uses up more battery, and you also risk accidentally opening up an app or dialing someone unintentionally.

    3. Turn Off Notifications

    Whenever you are notified of something on your phone, whether it’s a new text message, a BeamIt notification, or some sort of reminder, it decreases your battery’s life. This is because the notifications often consist of your screen lighting up and your phone vibrating, which takes quite a bit of energy out of your phone.

    image

    To turn off your notifications on an iPhone, go to your phone’s settings and look for “Notification Center”. Scroll down and select the app for which you’d like to stop receiving notifications. To turn off notifications that appear at the top of your screen, disable the “Badge App Icon” option. To turn of notifications that appear on your lock screen, disable “Show on Lock Screen”. If you would just like to make your notifications silent, turn off the “Sounds” option.

    image

    To turn off an Android’s notifications, go to your phone’s settings and then click on “Apps”. Next, click on the app for which you no longer want to receive notifications and then uncheck the box that says “Show Notifications”.

    4. Keep It Cool

    When you leave your phone in the sun for a while or bring it with you to a warm location like the beach, your phone will use up its battery much faster. Thus, keeping your phone in a room temperature or cooler environment will allow it to function smoothly while preserving as much battery as possible.

    5. Turn Off WiFi and Bluetooth

    image

    If you don’t need your phone’s wireless radio features, such as WiFi, Bluetooth, and the GPS tracker, turning them off will result in your phone consuming less battery. This is because your phone will no longer be in constant search of wireless signals. A quick fix for this is turning your phone on airplane mode, but you can also turn each of these features off individually in your phone’s settings.

    6. Adjust Your Auto-Lock

    The faster your phone locks on its own, the better. This means if you forget to lock it, your phone won’t stay on too long before it automatically locks. To adjust this, head over to your phones settings, tap “General” and find the “Auto-Lock” option. This will allow you to lower the amount of time before your screen locks on its own.

    7. Battery Case

    image

    Battery cases usually consist of an extended battery that is stored in the case. These extended batteries can often double the lifespan of your smartphone. Although they are sometimes a bit bulkier than a normal case, if you find yourself constantly running out of battery at inconvenient times or in places with no charging outlets, investing in one might be the way to go.

  • My Story as an Intern: From Highschooler to Hacker

    At Cooliris, we strive to provide opportunities for students to gain work experience in a startup environment. Each of our interns have their own story about their experience at Cooliris. One of our interns is William Wong, a 15 year old aspiring app developer. Here is his story.

     image

    The day was Friday, January 24th.  It was the first day of my internship at the Cooliris office and I was stoked to begin helping out in the production of the then, unreleased Cooliris Android app.  Before I began work, I toured the office and came across many cool items such as a quadcopter and a wall covered with photos resembling the Cooliris 3D wall.  During my tour, I met everyone that worked there and they were all really friendly and excited that I would be interning at Cooliris.  After my tour, I started testing the latest Android test build and began my quest to learn Objective-C and HTML.  I ended up creating a simple app that displayed how many times you pressed a button.  Time flew quickly as I was having fun learning how to code and testing the Cooliris Android app and before I knew it, I had to go home.  This pattern continued every week after that.

    Fast forward eight months later, and I am now developing an iOS app and can create websites. 

    image

    Every few weeks, I am assigned a project related to either marketing or coding.  This allows me to quickly learn how to create apps and how to market products via social networking sites. Past projects include a bank account app, Tetris, and a messaging app.  Each project has incrementally become more advanced, allowing me to apply the skills I have learned from past projects to the current project I am working on.  These projects have given me the confidence to code apps.  In addition, I have learned how important it is to market applications as well as give followers a look into a company’s work environment in order to engage and increase the amount of users.

    Every time I arrive at the Cooliris office, I know that I am going to learn at least three new things and have a good time.  Over the past few months, I have learned about the creation process of an app, how to code, and how to market products.  Before interning at Cooliris, I imagined that creating an app was easy and all you needed to know was how to code.  I did not even know that there was a bug testing process that one had to go through before releasing an app.  Luckily, my internship has taught me that creating an app is a long thought out process that includes creating a great user interface — something Cooliris has done spectacularly with its products including Beamit, their new messaging app.

    image

    Interning at Cooliris has provided me with many fun experiences.  One memorable moment is when I found many reoccurring bugs in the Android app during my first few weeks at Cooliris since the app was still in development. Other examples are the bug bashes that I participated in, talking with employees and other interns, creating posts to market apps, and the Cooliris Android app and the Beamit releases.

    Overall, my internship experience at Cooliris so far has been wonderful and I am excited to continue working with the company in the future.

    Stay tuned to get to know more interns and their stories!

  • #BeamItTips Part 4: Group Photo Wall, Full Screen View, and Offline Mode

    Welcome back to another round of #BeamItTips. Today we are coming at you with a few more awesome features, so get ready!

    Photo Wall

    While BeamIt is a private messaging app, one of our key focuses is creating the optimal photo sharing and viewing experience.  If you love your photos just like us, we’ve got the perfect feature for you! The group photo wall, which you can access from any one of your groups by clicking on the wall icon at the top of the screen, allows you to look through all the hundreds of photos that your group members have shared in the form of our classic 3D viewing wall. In here, you can scroll through all your photos without ever having to sift through lines of text! From the photo wall, you can even select multiple photos at a time and save them to your camera roll.

    image

    Full Screen Photo View

    In addition to scrolling through all your group’s photos at once, BeamIt also allows you to focus on each one of your photos individually, in full screen and full resolution. No matter where you find a photo, whether it’s in group view or the photo wall, all you have to do is tap on that photo and it will appear in full screen mode.

    image

    From there, in the bottom right-hand corner will appear the icons representing options to like, comment, and send the photo you are currently viewing to another person or group. In the top right-hand corner, you also have the option of saving the photo to your camera roll.

    Offline Mode

    We know it isn’t always easy to stay in touch with your friends and family, especially if you are a frequent traveler or find yourself coming across those far too common spotty internet connections. That’s exactly why we created BeamIt’s offline mode! With this feature, even when no WiFi is available, you can still view and share messages and photos.

    image

    When you post something to a group during offline mode, a small orange circle to the right of the group name at the top of your screen will indicate that your post is pending, meaning your fellow group members cannot yet see it. If you return to the homepage, orange text at the bottom of your screen will also indicate that your changes are pending. However, as soon as you are back online, the pending signals will disappear and BeamIt will automatically add your posts for you!


    That’s it for today! Hope you found these tips useful, and as always, stay tuned for more!

  • #TechTips: 4 Simple Ways to Transfer Photos Between Your iPad and Computer

    It’s undeniable that an iPad provides a gorgeous yet simple and fun interface to view and organize your photos, whether you are scrolling through them with your Cooliris account, sharing them via BeamIt, or just enjoying them straight from your camera roll. Having all your favorite pictures stored on one of these portable, handy devices as opposed to your laptop or desktop is ideal  - the only question is, how do you do it?

    image

    Or maybe you are looking to save storage space by moving some of your iPad’s photos to your computer. Either way, the question always comes up - “what exactly is the best way to transfer my photos from one device to the other?” While there are many ways to transfer your pictures, we’ve organized a list of some of the most efficient techniques that’ll allow you to to be moving your photos between your computer and iPad in no time!

    1. From Computer to iPad (Sync with iTunes)

    Syncing your two devices using iTunes is one of the simplest and most preferred methods to transfer your photos, particularly if you are planning on moving them from computer to iPad. To get started, first compile a folder on your computer of all the photos you’d like to upload to your iPad. Using the connector cable that came with your iPad, connect your iPad to your computer.

    image

    On your computer, open your iTunes account. On the left hand side of the iTunes window, click on the name of your iPad. Once you have clicked on this, select the tab in the upper right-hand corner that is labeled “Photos” and upload your photos from the folder on your computer that you stored them in. After the pictures are selected, click “Apply” or “Sync” on the bottom right of the iTunes window. Then simply wait for the photos to transfer to your computer, and you are all done!

    image

    2. From iPad to Computer (Sync with iPhoto)

    For Mac users, iPhoto is often best for importing photos from your iPad to your computer. First, connect your two devices and then open iPhoto on your computer. In the sidebar on the left-hand side of the window, select the name of your iPad. Immediately, the photos from your iPad’s camera roll should appear. Lastly, select all the photos you would like to transfer and click “Import Selected” in the bottom left corner or simply click “Import All” if you would like to transfer all of the photos that appear. Then just save the photos to your computer!


    image

    3. Transfer Between Devices (Download an App)

    Some people find it easier to download an app specifically designed for transferring photos between devices. Some examples of these are Photo Transfer App, WiFi Photo Transfer, and Image Transfer. Feel free to head over to the app store and check them out! Dropbox also works quite well if you have it installed on both your devices.

    image

    4. Email the Files to Yourself

    Although this method tends to be a last resort, emailing the image files to yourself can work quite well if you are only transferring a few photos. All you have to do is compose a new email on the device that the photos are originally on, attach the photos in the email, and then send it to yourself.

    image

    On whichever device you are transferring your photos to, open the email you just sent and download the attached photos. You can then save these photos to your your computer or your iPad’s camera roll and they will be ready to view!

    Hope these transfer tips were helpful! Stay tuned for more #TechTips!

  • #BeamItTips Part 3: Start a group with friends & send to multiple groups simultaneously

    Ever wish that you could send the same message to multiple different groups at once instead of re-writing or copying and pasting the message multiple times? Or that you could invite an unlimited number of your friends to one group conversation?

    Finally, BeamIt offers unique and easy-to-use sharing features that you’ve been waiting for in a private messaging app.

    How to start a group with your friends

    Whether it’s a group of 50 people or a one-on-one conversation, composing a new message is easy and fast with BeamIt. First, tap the “new message” button, then simply type in the email of each person you would like to invite to the group. You can then compose your message by typing in the messaging box, attaching an unlimited number of photos, or both. As a major bonus, you can even type in the emails of people who don’t have BeamIt yet and they will still receive your new message through an email invitation!

    How to send a message to multiple groups

    image

    Now say you want to share some photos of your last vacation with two different BeamIt groups - one to your mom in a one-on-one conversation, and the other to your group of best friends. With other messaging apps, you’d have to compose each message separately, then re-write your message and re-attach all the photos in two different groups. Instead with BeamIt, all you have to do is compose a message and then just select all the groups you want to send to. This way you’ll send your photos to each private group separately yet simultaneously. It’s that easy, and the number of groups you can send to is unlimited, too!

    BeamIt is available for free on iTunes. Web app and Android version are in the works - sign up here to stay updated on the releases!
