Apple today launched a new application called MobileMe Gallery. The app lets anyone with a MobileMe subscription view their images and videos stored in the cloud directly on their iPhone. It also lets subscribers view content that friends share publicly.
The software acts much like the iPhone’s photo gallery in that you can view different albums and pinch and pull to view photos. Once you’ve viewed a photo, you can access it when your iPhone is offline as well.
MobileMe Gallery is available in the iTunes App Store for free.
A feature that’s very promising is the ability to configure Safari to open MobileMe Gallery links directly in the app, sort of the way the new Facebook uses “fb://” links to open its own application.
The MobileMe Gallery app lets you enjoy friends’ photos, too. Just add other MobileMe members to your Friends list and view their galleries as easily as you view your own.
