Facebook Payments Product Manager Deborah Liu highlighted four applications that are having success with login with Facebook at the Appnation conference in San Francisco Tuesday: ticket discovery app Applauze, women’s fashion commerce app Threadflip, photo app Cooliris, and radio app Swell Radio.
We know that more and more users around the world are accessing Facebook through their phones, but new statistics released Wednesday by comScore show that Facebook’s native application has surpassed Google Maps and is now the most widely used mobile utility in the U.S.
For people who have photos all over the Web — on Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, etc. — Cooliris is a great way to bring all of those images to one place and organize them. Facebook’s developers team thinks highly of the application, as it earned a spotlight on its blog. Cooliris gained a strong following shortly after launch, and the app has taken off on the Facebook platform.
Cooliris is a browser extension that lets you browse photos, videos games and news stories from various websites. A new Facebook application for Cooliris is taking the browser extension to the next level with Facebook-specific media enhancing features, including an interactive 3D wall for speedy browsing.
The Cooliris Facebook app allows you to scan all of your friends’ photos at once, in this 3D wall. The interactive portion comes into play when you note you’re able to skip to more photos of a friend based on their tags. These photos will also be seen in an interactive 3D wall.
