Cooliris Adds Evernote Support, Makes Great Dropbox Image Browser



Those looking for a great alternative way to browse their photos on an iOS device might think about Cooliris, an app which has been around in various forms (I think I first saw it as a browser plugin) for some time. Cooliris’ gimmick is its endless wall of photos which you can almost throw around the screen, but recent versions have added so many sources that it might well become your iOS photobrowser of choice.

This week, the app has gotten support for Evernote images, plus more. And it still works great with Dropbox photos.

Here’s the full list:

  • SkyDrive
  • Tumblr
  • Evernote
  • Tencent Weibo
  • Yandex.Disk

I don’t know what half of those are, but I do know that you can now see any pictures stored in your Evernote, and that the Tumblr integration means that you’ll be able to browse pictures of half-naked pretty girls using just one hand.

But my favorites are Dropbox and iOS camera roll integration. The Cooliris interface, with its weighted, inertia-based scrolling, and the way you can tap an image to instantly see an almost full-sized version right there on the “wall,” is way better than native photo browsing in iOS 6 (and even iOS 7). And until Dropbbox gets around to making its great Albums feature available on iOS, Cooliris now ties with [Unbound][!] as my favorite way to browse Dropbox photos from my iPad.

There’s also a whole bunch of sharing option in the app, but I don’t need yet anoher place to send friends and family to look at my pictures. What I do like though is that you can choose ot save pictures from other services direct to your Dropbox – super handy for research or soft-porn projects.

Cooliris is – as ever – free.
