Vienna, Austria – DonkeyCat GmbH today is proud to announce the release of BeamAir 1.0, its new productivity app developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. BeamAir turns the iPhone or iPad into a mobile broadcasting station. It sends newly taken vacation photos directly to relatives, which might be sitting in front of the computer. Or, it streams the content of an opened PDF presentation around the world, straight to the colleagues back in the office. Additionally, annoying reconnecting of cables at the company can be avoided – instead, important content is being forwarded immediately from the iOS to a projector.
In a nutshell:
* New app: BeamAir
* Universal app for the iPhone and iPad
* A mobile presentation that is easy to operate
* Turns any iPhone or iPad into a transmission device
* Streams photos or PDF presentations
* Reception on any device with a web browser
* Does not require registration or inconvenient login
* Price: Free app plus 500 free credits
The only thing a “receiver” requires for the iOS controlled streaming is a device that features a web browser – which could include a PC, a Mac, a Linux computer, a smartphone, a tablet, an Internet-capable television or projector system.
BeamAir: Generate a code, pass it on, and enter it – done:
This universal app for the iPhone or iPad is more than simple to operate. As soon as the app is being started, it generates an individual code for the current session. The code is easily transmitted from within the app via Facebook, Twitter, e-mail or SMS to any friends or colleagues, who are participating in the current streaming. Naturally, the code may also be shared verbally. The established code needs to be entered on the Beamair website – and that’s it. No registration, login or opening of an account on Beamair is necessary.
Right after entering the code a connection is being established – between the sending iPhone/iPad and the receiving web browser. Several people may at any time join or leave the session. When the sender uses the iPhone or iPad to scroll through the photo library, the images are transferred immediately to the web browser of the recipient – live! It does not get much easier when it comes to displaying images an audience – and it also works with PDF presentations that are for example being opened from an e-mail attachment.
Gerald Novak of the responsible DonkeyCat Gmbh: “BeamAir is perfect when it comes to sharing images and presentations in a simple and easy way. Without having to copy files, or reconnect cables, photos and PDF documents may be opened and scrolled through on the iPhone or iPad, and can be displayed live on any device.”
After a session has been completed, receivers no longer have access to the data that was displayed; and no traces remain on the Internet.

DonkeyCat GmbH is based in Vienna, Austria. CEO is Gerald Noviak. DonkeyCat is an Austrian software company specialized on mobile software for various app stores. Most of their applications are designed and planned for interaction between its users, often using cloud based backends. One of their main focus areas is on mobile games – here they are very active and pretty successful in the niche of card games, especially local games from Austria and Germany. However, they are also experimenting with various other gaming ideas, for example they are trying to re-activate some great gaming concepts from the 80s and 90s, for example Ballerburg, and bring them into the mobile, preferrably multiplayer world. Besides that, they are also working on several concepts for mobile apps which will hit the market soon. Here they try to build apps with emphasis on interaction between users and use mobile and cloud technologies to offer solutions for common everyday problems. The first apps are about to be released in first half of 2013. All Material and Software (C) Copyright 2013 DonkeyCat GmbH. All Rights Reserved.
