Editors' Note: The "Download Now" link directs you to the iTunes App Store, where you must continue the download process. You must have iTunes installed in order to open the link, and you must have an active iTunes account to download the application.
The gorgeous-looking Cooliris lets you quickly search for images on Google, Flickr, Yahoo, SmugMug, and DeviantArt by swiping through the results with your finger. Taking a tip from the built-in accelerometer, you can also usefully tip your phone to navigate through the photos as they continue to load. You'll be able to zoom into photos and view links without bumping back to Safari, an excellent gesture on Cooliris' part.
If you tire of searching, you can also browse images in news, sports, tech, and business that are selected depending on where you are in the world. Support for videos would make Cooliris for iPhone much more useful, as would being able to save high-quality copies to the iPhone's camera roll. While we hope to see our wish list fulfilled in future versions, this first attempt is off to a good start.
Cooliris for iPhone instantly transforms your browser into a full-screen, 3D experience for viewing photos and videos on the Web. Photos and videos will come to life via a cinematic presentation that goes well beyond the confines of the traditional browser window. With Cooliris, browsing and viewing media on the Web will never be the same again. Search sites like YouTube, Flickr, Google Images, or deviantART. You can visually shop at Amazon.com and you can discover content from sites like ESPN, MSNBC and BBC, as well as movie trailers and the latest pop culture. Version 1.5 includes faster searches (up to five-times faster), full Twitter support, and the ability to search using Microsoft's Bing search engine.
