Immersive slideshows

If you spend a lot of time looking at large numbers of photos on the web then take a look at the PicLens browser plugins. It builds a 3D wall of photos from a page and allows you to zoom around them and view each one full screen. In my case, particularly useful for browsing photos on Flickr.

    Hi David,

    We’ve got some exciting news to announce from Cooliris! Now you can experience Cooliris anywhere and anytime by navigating the mobile web with our brand new iPhone App. Cooliris for the iPhone is the fastest way to browse media-rich web content on the go.

    Searching the Web with the Cooliris iPhone app displays your results in the same intuitive, easy-to-navigate manner you’ve come to expect from the Cooliris web client. 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 for the iPhone brings you the news and articles relevant to you from across the Web with our Discover feeds. All of the Discover feeds available on our web client have been optimized for the iPhone, so you’ll always have the latest current events at your fingertips.

    No matter where you are in the world, Cooliris delivers content that is relevant to where you are based. Since the iPhone can detect your location through GPS, you’ll get news customized to your locale (UK users will automatically have a UK News feed available to them, for example). This will be a huge boon to our enthusiastic international user base. Discover also allows you to pull up the related story within its web context by clicking the associated metadata. There’s no need to jump out of Cooliris and visit the parent website in order to get the full story!

    This is only the first release for Cooliris on the iPhone, and as such it’s meant to help you navigate the internet’s news and media as simply and easily as possible. As the application grows, you’ll be seeing more features currently only available on the web client, as well as new ones which take advantage of the iPhone’s unique interface – so stay tuned!
