Team Cooliris has been working tirelessly for the last few months to bring you yet another super cool update. For those of you who have been following our journey, this update brings a sublime photo discovery experience with it. Your beautiful 3D wall now not only showcases your own photographs but those of your friends and followers as well. Version 2.6 delivers a host of new features that promise endless discovery.
So WHAT’S NEW:
Endless Discovery of friends’ photos - Deeper integration with friends for enriched and meaningful social discovery.
Facebook friends’ photos, Instagram followers and following photos, Flickr contacts’ photos, and Renren friends’ photos are all now surfaced in the app for a beautiful experience. Now you can truly see all of your photos in one place - whether it is your own photos or photos from your friends, followers, and so on.
And that is not all we have in store for you in this release. We have added yet another useful source to store and share your beautiful treasures: Dropbox.
Furthermore, we have added folder navigation into the menu, so you can select any folder in Google Drive and Dropbox and explore them with delight. You can also save photos from any other source, whether it’s your mobile library, Facebook, Instagram, Renren, Picasa, Flickr, directly into a specific Google Drive or Dropbox Folder. This gives you an easy way to organize and save photo collections from your mobile device.
In short, there’s no other app that does it like we do. It’s a fast and fluid experience with selective sharing. With the launch of this new version, Cooliris is the “one-stop app” for all of your photos. We’re creating a better experience for you to connect, discover and selectively share your photos the way you want, from any source of your choice.
So what are you waiting for? Download version 2.6 from the iTunes App Store for free. Time to begin your endless discovery.

We’re excited to introduce the all-new Cooliris, available now for iPad and iPhone in the App Store. Before going into the details, let’s backtrack so you get the whole picture.
When we first released the Cooliris 3D Wall as a browser extension in 2008, it enabled a stunning new way to browse media on the desktop, allowing you to consume images, photos and videos from the web like never before. The product was well received by millions and we received tangible feedback from hundreds of thousands of users from around the world. You said the Cooliris Wall was a great way to browse search results for images, to see large sets of photos and videos, and experience galleries embedded by webmasters on their own websites. Bringing the Wall to market was an extraordinary experience for us.
Simultaneously, an interesting shift was taking place in the landscape. With the introduction and hyperscaling of iOS and Android mobile devices, the world began going mobile, opening up opportunities to experience digital media in a new ways. Handbags and pockets held powerful cameras and phones, and new services enabled everyone to become a photographer. You started posting and publishing beautiful photos to Facebook and Instagram, or just taking them to remember and share, and we were getting started on how we could make the process even better.
We embraced mobile by being part of something big. We worked closely with Andy Rubin at Google to create the Android Gallery, which became the default native app for Android 2.1 and above.
Fast forward to present day, and we’re leveraging all our learnings from our past successes and mistakes, and are proud to present to the world today a brand new app for iPad and iPhone. You kept telling us the Cooliris Wall was meant for tablets and mobile phones, and we heard loud and clear.
The all new Cooliris app is the fast, fluid, and stunning new way to explore, discover, and share photos. We’ve chosen your favorite sources - Facebook, Instagram, Google Images, and of course your personal photo library on your device - and seamlessly combined them into an easy-to-use iPad and iPhone app. You can swipe, zoom, and efficiently navigate through thousands of photos on the Cooliris 3D Wall, then selectively share them with people you care about in private 1-on-1 or group conversations, or publish it to a broader audience by sharing it to your Facebook Timeline.
Try Cooliris for showcasing your photography collection, sharing personal moments with your family, or simply as a better way to enjoy your favorite photos.
We’ve had a lot of fun building the all-new Cooliris, and we hope you enjoy discovering, experiencing, and sharing photos as much as we do. We strive to be the best in immersive and visual rich media experiences, and today we are starting the next chapter.
