    Beamberry

    Advertisement



    I just downloaded the free program, beamberry. It looks to me that it only enables you to store files for printing. I do not see any feature where one can take the file from the file manager and use in another e-mail which I see as a drawback.

    Any thoughts?

    Is this a new program? I'm not familiar with it at all.

    i've been trying it, but it wont open any of my PDF attachments. i open the email, hover over the [1 Attachment] and click the BB Menu button (on my 8100) and goto Open with BeamBerry, it asks if i want to view, save or print i goto View and it says cannot connect to server or something. No idea whats wrong, i can attempt to view it with the normal BB attachment viewr and it shows a black square. Strange.

    Ok I played around with it a lil bit!! Um that would be great if you could do that with this program! But it seems like this program was designed for more so just granting the access to your Docs. I like the printing feature on it. But its actually a good program I like it

    They said they are goingto be adding new features shortly. I inferred that it included the ability to use the files to insert attachments.

    I took a look at it concerned it might be a trojan or phishing application.
    The website was created December 26, 2006 and there was no identifying information about it.
    After looking a bit further I think this is just a bad app. It uses your device as a relay to send an attachment to his server that creates a screenshot.
    So you download the whole attachment from your BES/BIS, resend the whole attachment to his server, then download the image back to your device.
    If you have a 6k document, that’s fine. If you have a 600k PDF, you’re going to use ~1.2 meg to view the attachment.
    If you make a mistake and download a 10 Mb Powerpoint file, better dip into your kid’s education fund to pay for your wireless charges.
    Interesting idea, but I don’t think it’s scaled, secure or feasible.

    Does anyone know anything about this company - is it legitimate? Their web site offers NO information about a real business location/address, NO telephone numbers, and NO names of real people. And after searching for “beamberry” on Google, you see their web site was under construction as of 1/27/07.

    Wow!! Glad I didn't start uploading Docs! That's what I get for just browsing instead of researching, thanks for the eye opener
