Ratings and Reviews
Smooth User Experience and Packed with Info
I hope Four stars is as good as getting five. The only reason I did not give this app Five Stars is because my experience with Art apps is strong, but I am not an Industry Expert- yet!
I do believe this application offers more information than any of the others on the iOS market and the user experience has been the best I have yet to come by when seeking information about exhibits artists and galleries throughout New York City and surrounding region. Furthermore it is not limited to a specific Event like many others I've used, e.g., Art Basel (although grateful for event specific tools as well).
I look forward to getting more use of the info provided - the content heads deserve a pat on the back (developers of course, as well). Okay the entire team gets a high five! Thanks for all of your hard work and providing Artists and Fans with useful info. I hope users are enjoying across the globe.
Is there a way to get updates on app and sources? I will look into answering this question and I do apologize in advance should it already be readily available. My best!
Good Info but Missed Opportunities
The actual information they have within the app is par excellance. But it’s presented in a very dumb way. For example: if I select “Nearby,” it’d because I want to see what’s, well, nearby. It shows the hours of galleries, but why doesn’t it filter out the ones that are closed if it has access to the phone clock? Why won’t it notify me that a show I have bookmarked is closing tomorrow? Like I said: good information if I dedicate time to reading everything, but it could be so much cleverer and helpful if it tried.
I gave this app 5 stars but is anything ever really perfect? Well in this case I would say it's about as good as it gets when it comes to having your very own Gallery/Museum concierge in you pocket to help you navigate the NYC art scene. NYC always has a lot of everything and sometime you have an idea of what you want to do but have no idea where to start. This app is very useful tool when you decide to do an artsy farsty activity. The features, user friendly interface get you going in a few minutes. The Galleries are organized by area or borough. If you're not familiar with the city, you can pull up a map to help you locate galleries close to you. There are details of the artists being shown and one of my favorite details in the app is how long an exhibit will be at a particular gallery. This honestly is one of my favorite apps when it comes to a guide in the city.
