#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.

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

  • #LetsBeamIt: A stunning communication experience for people on the road

    No matter where you are in the world, be it deep in the woods, up in the mountains, or out in the canyons - using our new app BeamIt lets you share your experiences privately with your groups of fellow adventurers, friends, or family. Unlike other messaging apps, where you usually share only a handful of photos at a time, with the unique interface we’ve created in BeamIt you can share an unlimited number of breathtaking high resolution photos without having to worry about “clogging” the conversation.


    Another really cool feature is the Photo Wall, which is a special photo centric interface where you can browse the entire group’s photos separately in one place.


    Lastly, BeamIt also features a full offline experience, so even while offline you can add content that the app will automatically sync once it’s online. This is very useful for all you jetlagged travelers out there getting on and off long flights and going online and offline intermittently.

  • #LetsBeamIt: A new private sharing experience for families!


    Gone are the days when Mom had to worry about photo privacy, constantly wondering who exactly and how many people could see the photos she posted to Facebook. Luckily, BeamIt by Cooliris is finally here with the solution! Our new private messaging app combines a stunning photo sharing experience with fun and easy messaging features. While BeamIt retains many of the classic and favorite social networking features such as the ability to comment & “like”, you never have to actually log in to any social network. The app is designed strictly for private groups that you create yourself. This means you control exactly who sees your photos, so you can share pictures of the family securely and even to multiple different groups at once!


    Whether you want to share hundreds of photos from a family vacation or just a few from another day at the park with your kids, BeamIt is the perfect place to do it. With BeamIt’s Photo Drawers, you can easily share hundreds of photos in one upload, all in full resolution, without interrupting the flow of the conversation.


    Finally, Mom can share and comment those funny bathtub photos of her kids without the whole world having to see them! :)

  • How to privately share photos with Cooliris Groups

    Cooliris already lets you view your photos from 20 sources. But what if you want to share photos you discover more privately, with a select group of people? Well, the Cooliris groups feature is perfect for that. You can create a closed group with a customizable number of participants, all of whom can contribute their unique media and message content.

    It’s easy to start a private group

    Just launch the Cooliris app and you’ll find the “Groups” window right there on the homepage.

    1. Start a new group by tapping the pen and paper icon at the top righthand corner. When the group window appears, you can add members to it by typing their email addresses, selecting them from your Facebook friends list, or a combination of both. Optionally, customize your group with a title.

    2. To capture photos or upload those from your device, just tap the camera icon. Drop in as many photos as you like and even type a comment to describe to your friends what you’re sharing.

    3. Just tap the “done” icon in the top right corner and you will have created a group. It’s as easy as that. Your new group will appear in the list of groups you are a part of.

    Sharing between groups and sources

    With groups you can share photos from any source to anyone you wish. For example, say you want to share multiple photos you found from multiple sources like Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr, all to one small subset of friends.

    1. Go into any source within Cooliris and select your desired photos from the 3D wall by tapping them.

    2. Tap and select the photos you want to share from that source

    3. Select the group you want to add these to, and they will immediately appear there! Add photos from another source to same group, just repeat the steps above.

    Sharing via Cooliris groups is tons a fun and saves you time. Play around with it and you’ll discover the amazing ease with which you can now share from any of your sources with those close to you.

    Download Cooliris to begin sharing your photos privately in groups.
