About this app

BEAM Authentic is a self-expression platform that stimulates values based conversation in the real world and online at the same time, connecting people around shared interests, positive intentions, and social impact to make the world a better place. The BEAM Authentic App allows you to create and express yourself by creating round visual content called Beams. The BEAM Create process is easy to use and robust, giving you a powerful set of tools to design and create just about anything you want from photos to graphics. You can share these Beams by sending them to your wearable BEAM device (connected dynamic smart button) and/or share your Beams online in our newsfeed, on social media or direct to friends via text. Find or create content from the BEAM library, other users, your phone pictures, your phone camera, or from the web. Edit them, describe and tag them, add a URL, and BEAM them to your device wirelessly using Bluetooth, or to your social media. You can also donate to charities, organizations, and causes right from the app, and then Beam their image or logo, expressing their values, and share them with others who might want to donate and support these causes. BEAM what you care most about – your favorite sports team, your school, charities, causes, current events, bands, pop culture, politics, and of course friends and family and more. BEAM stimulates conversations in the real world.

* Beams can be a single image, a slideshow, or animated GIF.

* Create your Own - Use photos, take a pic or pull from the web and design single Beams or slideshows instantly.
* Find & Discover - Browse Beams in the newsfeed and other Beamers' libraries, or search specific areas of interest.
* Support & Donate - Raise awareness, stimulate conversation, learn about causes, donate and take action.
* Follow & Subscribe - Enjoy receiving Beams from the bands, celebrities, schools, causes, teams, and friends you follow.
* BEAM STREAM - Receive content directly on your BEAM from your favorite teams, orgs and friends.
* Start a Conversation - Beam to your device, share to social media and to friends by text. Share what you care about and engage others.

I'm so glad I was given this as swag instead of having purchased it myself because it would have been a huge waste of money. Firmware upgrades only work on Mac. The app bugs out frequently, claiming server error, requiring reinstall because even logging out and in, clearing app data, and restating phone doesn't help. You have to frequently make new attempts to pair the device until it finally works. Adding media to the device takes hours per attempt and several attempts. Worst UX design too.

it works, but the app has a clumsy design. it is very difficult to resize and align images properly. the two-finger resize and rotate makes it very difficult without any system to realign an image vertically or fit to frame. the slideshow only allows up to 10 images. the worst limitation is that it only allows GIF images up to 24 frames.

The app really isn't user friendly. It's overly focused on trying to get you to participate in its social media side and very difficult to navigate to the actual functions. Additionally, despite claims on the website, I cannot upload my own gifs. The app crashes or stops responding when I try. Gifs from gify work, and you can edit those gifs to somewhat personalize them, but non in-app gifs don't work.
