Beam It! app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
Send your contact info wirelessly to another iOS device
Beam It! allows you to wirelessly send (or beam!) your contact information to another iPhone, iPad or iPod touch over Bluetooth.
Think back… think back to the days of the Newton and the Palm Pilot when you could beam your contact information to another device using the IR transmitter. Nothing fancy. No network to setup. No vCard to email. It was fast, easy and just worked. We loved the simplicity of this and really missed it in our iPhone. So ArcTouch developed Beam It! wireless contact sharing for the iPhone, available for free in the App Store.

You can use any portion of the Beam It! source code in your own applications (even commercial apps) but:
- You can’t redistribute the entire Beam It! source code to anyone – you have to link back to us: iOS Game Kit Bluetooth Network Sample Code – Beam It! by ArcTouch App Developers (use this link text: <a href=”http://arctouch.com/beamit/”>iOS Game Kit Bluetooth Network Sample Code – Beam It! by ArcTouch App Developers</a>)
- You can’t compile the entire Beam It! source code and distribute an app like this (with contact beaming functionality) in the App Store under a different name
- If you use any portion of the Beam It! code in your app we’d appreciate a mention somewhere on your site or in the application credits area (not really required, but good karma!) – something like “Includes peer-to-peer Bluetooth networking code from Beam It! by ArcTouch app developers – http://arctouch.com/beamit“
iOS Game Kit Peer To Peer Networking Over Bluetooth or WiFi
Beam It! uses the automatic discovery and spontaneous peer-to-peer Bluetooth or WiFi network connectivity of the Game Kit framework found in iOS to find other iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch devices near you that are also running Beam It! Find the device you want to “beam” to and then choose either your own contact information or any other contact from your Address Book. The card is instantly sent to the recipient and added to their Address Book.
Game Kit peer-to-peer networking can enhance many iOS apps and provide you with a “killer” feature for your customers. Games can be truly multi-player, social networking apps can discover nearby people with similar interests, and GPS geo-location aware applications can harness the wisdom of the crowds.
