Media Browser Cooliris Hits App Store

Apple has made it pretty clear that they have no intention of allowing apps into the App Store that compete with things like the iPod app, but apparently they aren’t so protective with Mobile Safari. Cooliris, the futuristic graphic-based 3D web browser extension for the Mac and PC, was recently released as an app in the iPhone’s App Store.

While Mobile Safari offers one of the best traditional web browsing experiences on a Mobile Device to date, Cooliris takes a new approach that focuses on helping you find media (images, videos and other content) related to a subject that interests you.

It does seem odd that Apple would allow a competing web browser into the App Store, we’re guessing they allowed it in because it wasn’t a traditional web browser like Safari.

Cooliris is available for free download here: [App Store].
