Ratings and reviews

To rate and review this product go to client store on the device it’s installed on.

It clearly states that the app is initially only available in US and Canada, and then everyone globally downloads it and tries to use it and then rates it one star because their phone number doesn't work for login. What an unfair rating system. This app now has a lower rating than it should because people don't read the details before installing. 99% of the bad reviews are from the users' failure to read the details and requirements about the app before installing and trying to use. Lets go download iTunes and try to install iOS 8 on our Windows Phone and then give it 1 star and rate how bad Macintosh as a company, iTunes as a program and the iOS as an app is because it wouldn't install and wouldn't work on our Windows Phone.

Really cool. Works for recipients whether you have the app or not. People should read the product description before they rate it low for not supporting non-US phones.

No Lumia Beamer

It is dog slow, cumbersome, pairing often does not work. Lumia Beamer was fast, easy to work with, and gave Windows phone the wow-factor.

Works great. Very similar to OneDrive sharing but alot simpler. Definitely like the UI, and like that the photos delete themselves over time when shared with someone

Very cool! Shared pics using it with another WP and 2 iPhones today and it worked flawlessly. Love it!

Amazing idea! I don't see the reason why international numbers are non supported.

Rotates all pictures the wrong way.

For all of those trying to register with a non US number just remember to put a + before your country code (long tap 0). Worked for me with a Swedish number. As for the app itself I guess it works as advertised.
