Beam is a simple, private, free app that lets two people share their current locations. You see me and I see you in realtime for one hour.
***How Beam works***
Beam works the same way as a phone call or text message - but it puts you both on the same map. See the location, even as it changes, of the person you are Beaming. The only person who sees you is the person you’ve Beamed. And, you must both agree to Beam before you can see each other. A Beam is time limited and set to one hour.
+ Realtime: you see me and I see you on a map in realtime
+ Time limited: a Beam is one hour
+ Easy: the Beam Bar makes it clear who can see you and for how long
+ Convenient: the Beam ends automatically when you meet up
+ Simple: two taps to start a Beam. One tap to accept a Beam
***Beam just makes meeting up easier***
Take the stress out of not knowing when and where your friends and family are when trying to meetup. Find your friends easily with Beam. Try it when you're:
+ waiting for a ride home
+ wondering when your guests will arrive
+ organizing a place to meet
+ letting your partner know you’re on the way home from work
+ looking for your friends in an unfamiliar city
+ meeting friends or family on a whim
+ or having fun, simply sharing with your friends where you are!
**Beam is Private**
With Beam, there are no surprises. It is simple to use and the Beam Bar makes it very clear who can see you and for how long. You can stop a Beam at any time and your Beaming history is never saved. Also, because it’s for a short time, you just share when you need to and on your own terms.
