Cooliris is something of a unique app, and it provides an intriguing way to view online news, videos, photos and more with your iPhone or iPad. The app works in a visual form, presenting all of the content you can view on a never-ending wall of thumbnails - just tilt your mobile device to one side or the other to scroll through it.

The app can be used to search a huge number of different web sites including YouTube, Flickr, Picasa, deviantART, Twitter and many more. This means that you are able to keep up to date with the latest tweets, view your friends' photostreams and check out the latest videos, all from one convenient location.

If you stumble across images you are particularly keen on, a couple of taps is all it takes to save then to your photo library. To get the most from the app - including the ability to add and remove media on the go - you will need to sign up for a free Cooliris account at the program web site.

Cooliris can be used in so many different ways. It can be used merely as a curiosity, but it can also be used as a tool to keep abreast of the latest news. While it may seem like a slightly outlandish means of consuming media, it is also intriguing and wonderfully useful.
