PicBrowser 2.0

Hi! I'm the dev of PicBrowser.

PicBrowser is an utility to search for pictures in Google, Flickr and NASA JSC in Coverflow. Since version 2.0 I've added some features that I hope will please anyone who enjoys this layout.

AppStore search, which can be done by screenshot or artwork
Contacts in coverflow.
Music - Your music (like the iPod app) but you can search by artist, genre or album within this layout.
Photos in coverflow (ios version >= 4.0)

Every "engine" has a contextual menu for its data. To bring it up you just have to hold your finger on the center thumb (or cover).

Also, for bringing up the engine menu and the keyboard there're gestures explained in the app.

I think its a very clean looking app.

Is there a way to see more images at once when you perform a search? I'm finding it a little cumbersome to swipe through the cover flow view one at a time.

I like your idea of swiping to access the menus.

Thank you sir!

Nop, not currently... the idea behind this app (since its origin back in 2008) was to manage everything in coverflow... but now that you mention I should layout the images in a different way (like the photos app for instance)...

I'm going to think about that and propose different layout options...

Thank you again for your feedback...

Guess is the app...

Well, I've detected that only 3 promocodes have been used... so there're 7 promos available in case anyone wants the app for free...
