Light Beam let's you share photos between iOS devices using Bluetooth or upload to Facebook, Dropbox, Flickr or Email.

Photos transferred in full resolution and shared using device Bluetooth or WiFi so sharing can be done from anywhere. Can also send to Facebook, Dropbox, Flickr or using Email. ZIP supported for Email.

Photo quality settings available are good, better and best. Best provides the original image resolution.

Just select the photos that you want to share then click Send Photos to start the process. To receive the photos on the other device install and run Light Beam on that device and click Receive Photos.

Select New Photos to automatically find and select new photos added or taken with your camera. Use Settings to indicate how old the new photo can be: 1 day, 2 days, 3 days, 4 days, 5 days, 6 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 4 weeks.

Use the setting for checking for new photos when you start the app to add new photos to your selections.

Clicking the up arrow on any photo to display the full-screen original image (touch again hides). Clicking the X icon removes the photo thumbnail from your selections. A camera icon indicates that the photo was taken by the camera. Click the print icon to print using AirPrint.

When receiving photos, this setting is reflected via AUTOSAVE ON or AUTOSAVE OFF.

The zip file can also contain an HTML index for the ZIP contents. If an index is included, simply unzip the files into the same directory then click on the index.html file to view the zip file contents.
