beamME – Buy An App, Save Some Cash, Plant A Tree

On April 21, 2009

App developer rmbrme is celebrating Earth Day in an unusual and creative way. Not only have the discounted their apps but, in partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, a tree will be planted for every copy of their app that is sold.

Not only is it an interesting and innovative promotion, but it is a fitting one since, according to their press release, beamME users

"have saved over 100,000 wasteful paper exchanges… reducing carbon just by networking with their iPhones".


As someone who has moved largely to a paperless approach (except when using my PulsePen), I appreciate innovative apps that make paper less important in day to day work. beamME’s apps do just that by allowing iPhone and touch users to exchange business cards and resumes wirelessly. Most recently

beamME CV enables job seekers to send their resume, cover letter and vCard directly from their mobile phone, empowering real-time, green job search that ensures maximum visibility for the candidate.

The apps look good, the tie-in to Earth Day… brilliant! For more information visit the rmbrme website HERE.
