iPhone Browsing Gets Cooler with Cooliris

Cooliris was one of those web browser add-ons I discovered last year.  It was one of those “OMG this is cool”moments.  The makers of Cooliris, which used to be known as PicLens, released an application for the iPhone recently.  Like the add-on their app enables users to browse such sites as Google, Flickr, Yahoo, DeviantArt and SmugMug.

This has quickly become my favorite way to view photos on my iPhone.  The viewing has turned into a completely immersive experience.  Similiar to their add-on (plugin), this new iPhone app from Cooliris allows users to search relevant news and different articles from the web through their “discover” feature.  This content is further broken down in to specific categories such as New, Sports, Tech and Business.

As Cooliris says on their blog “The Cooliris iPhone app overcomes the traditional limitations of mobile internet browsing by coupling the breezy, open-ended feel of the 3D Wall with the streamlined hands-on interface of the iPhone touchscreen.”

Cooliris made implementing it on one of my websites a breeze.  The feedback we received from adding it to our site was enormous and nothing negative was ever mentioned.  Now with the flick of a finger you can get the same 3D media surfing experience as you get with a mouse.

Hopefully, in the very near future Cooliris will enable us to view dozens of other sites in their wall of content, which interactively zooms in and out, in this virtual world type of feeling.  Great job Cooliris, and keep up the innovative work.
