We are getting major momentum in Asia: Cooliris gets the media buzzing

The press has spoken; they absolutely love Cooliris and its gang. And this is how we show our appreciation for all the support they have given us; by honoring them all with a post on our website. And of course, for our readers, to find the news about Cooliris all in one place.
As the world prepares for the ominous ides of March, we here quite enjoyed the popularity this month brought for us. At the outset was an epic article written by Robin Wauters titled:

Here are 600 million reasons to replace the Photos app on your iPad with Cooliris

Writing for TheNextWeb, Wauters summarizes the Cooliris journey and the milestones it has achieved on the way. In fact it was a great compliment to read that he has replaced  the Photo’ app on his iPad. In his own words, “ I’ve replaced the Photos app on my iPad 2 to see if it’s an adequate alternative, and was pleasantly surprised” . The best part is the article was shared 4784 times so far.  You can read the rest of what Wauters said about us here:

But it wasn’t all play at the Cooliris HQ, as our team headed by CEO Soujanya Bhumkar left for a tour to Asia. First on their itinerary was the bustling Japanese city of Tokyo. Cooliris being super popular in Japan, with our second highest downloads coming from there, it was no surprise how responsive the tech media was to us. One of the most popular tech writers in Japan, Techdoll, tweeted about us to her thousands of followers and Techwave Japan organized an interview with our CEO and other editors. Rick Martin of the ever popular Start-up Dating Japan had this to write after a sit-down with Soujanya;

Next stop was the effervescent South Korea. The media was buzzing with the idea of interviewing the Cooliris team. Each media outlet contacted was eager to send their reporters for a meeting with the Cooliris team. Language was not a barrier, it was their enthusiasm that made for excellent press. The first morning our team was met by the popular ZDNet, whose article can be found here:
