Apple is offering a new in-house app for its iPhone platform with the launch of the new MobileMe Gallery application on the App Store.

"The new MobileMe Gallery app is a great way to view the photos in your MobileMe gallery on your iPhone or iPod touch", says Apple. "You can browse with simple pinch, swipe, and flick gestures and even view your friends' albums, no matter where you are".

As this quote might suggest, the app lets you view your entire MobileMe gallery - both photos and movies - on your iPhone or iPod touch while the photos you view are stored for future access - even if you are offline.

There's the option to email links to individual photos, albums, or your entire Gallery for friends to view and you can add friends from your contacts to view their public galleries. The app is available now, free to MobileMe subscribers.
