Cooliris, an app that aims to enhance how users view and share photos on mobile devices, has hit a new milestone: 250M photos viewed, up from 80M in April this year. It has also reached 1.5M installs.
The app, available on iPhone and iPad, has also introduced the ability to sync with Google Drive, Google+, and Flickr. Users can now share photos to and from these services, something which they have been able to do with Facebook, Instagram and Google Images.
Cooliris’ integration with Google Drive is particularly interesting, due to the cloud storage service’s “genie” image recognition technology. It gives the app’s users the ability to search photos without needing to manually tag them.
The company, based in Palo Alto, Berlin, Singapore and Taipei, also announced that it has logged 50M sessions and 1M photos shared. Cooliris previously got off to a fast start, becoming the number one app in 63 countries.
Two weeks ago, we featured Cooliris, an iPad app that aims to improve the way users view and share photos on the tablet. Now, the team has shared a major milestone with us: Cooliris is now number 1 for iPad apps in 63 countries for the lifestyle category. Read more
The iPad and iPhone’s default photo app works just fine, but it’s plain and boring, like going on date with a pleasant but forgettable partner: Good qualifications, secure desk-bound job, but rigid and humorless.
A new mobile app might shake things up a little. It’s called Cooliris, and it promises to make photo viewing and sharing not just pleasant — but pleasurable. You might have heard of the name before — Cooliris currently exists as a popular browser plugin that converts plain vanilla image pages on sites like Google Image Search, Flickr, and Facebook into flowy 3d slideshows. There’s also an old Cooliris mobile app that’s quite similar to the web plugin.
While the old mobile app is centered about viewing search images, the new version focuses on viewing and sharing personal photos. And yes, the new and free app, available on iPhone and iPad, still retains the same slideshow effect, though it really blossoms on the tablet.
Silicon Valley-based Cooliris, a company that turns digital content into interactive visual experiences, has announced today in a press release that it has received an investment from DOCOMO Capital, the venture arm of NTT DOCOMO, Japan’s largest mobile communications operator.

This purchase enables Amobee to leverage on AdJitsu’s technology to create greater innovation in 3D mobile ads. Amobee will also collaborate with ad networks, premium publishers, brands and agencies to create 3D ad units. Read more
There’s a very good reason why Whatsapp is sitting on my homescreen right now, next to the phone function and my Gmail app.
That’s because most of my peers are using it, and being a rather late adopter of the iPhone, I had no choice but to purchase the app.
No doubt, Whatsapp is the dominant cross-platform instant messaging app out in the market right now. Its ubiquity is disrupting the telecoms industry by replacing SMS as the primary text messaging platform.
But that does not make it the best app of its type out there. The revamped LiveShare, developed by Cooliris and available on the iPhone, wants to lay claim to that title. Read more
