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.

Today, we have an update (v.2.1) for the new Cooliris that incorporates some of the user feedback and feature requests. Download it now, and check it out.
Photos now include more detailed information like name, caption, time, place, and the number of likes and comments on them! It makes photo discovery from your mobile library, Facebook and Instagram even more engaging. It’s now also super easy to jump out to the original Facebook or Instagram page containing the photo, where you can comment or like the photo.
In Google Image search, you now have the flexibility to customize your search settings. You can filter images by size and jump to the original web page containing the image. Google Images SafeSearch settings are also now available.
In creating the new Cooliris, one of our goals was to take the numerous amounts of media shared on all your different networks and create an easy way to discover and share those photos. That way you can avoid the headache from data overload and instead view all your beautiful photos in one place. Cooliris brings together photos from your favorite sources, including Facebook, Instagram, and your own Camera Roll, all in one fast, fluid, and visually stunning app.
Let’s check out four of the new features incorporated with Facebook on Cooliris.
Open up Facebook on Cooliris and you’ll immediately see all the photos from your News Feed, which you can swipe, zoom, and flip through on the 3D Wall. You can also toggle between your personal Albums, Cover Photos, and Photos Tagged of You through the drop down navigation menu at the top of the screen.
Cooliris allows you to share any of your Facebook photos in private 1-on-1 or group conversations, whether it be from your News Feed or own albums. Now you can have a conversation around any topic or set of photos from multiple networks including Facebook. Select photos by pressing the share button in the upper right and selecting, or by holding down on a photo. Then press the share button again and the Conversations Menu Panel will slide out.
Share photos by selecting from any existing conversation, or create a new one. When creating a new conversation, Cooliris will autofill will contacts from your Facebook Friends and local Address Book. You can even send to anyone, even if they don’t currently have a Cooliris account.
When you want to save any photo in Facebook, press the Share button in the upper right. Then select all the photos you want to download to your camera roll and click Save. You can also select photos by holding down on an image.
Have several photos from your mobile library or Instagram that you want to upload to Facebook? It’s easy. Just press share, select, and “Share to Facebook” in the Conversations Menu Panel. All the photos will be added to your Facebook Timeline for all your friends to see.
