Ratings and Reviews
Came for the selfies. Stayed for the info.
I genuinely got the app to see whether my portrait was in a museum. I haven’t found that aspect of the app yet, but I ended up keeping the app for the easily accessible and organized information curated to various artists, cultures, issues etc.
Don’t use in Canada
This app is geolocked and you cannot use the popular find your portrait feature in Canada. What a waste of time.
Invasion of your privacy, as usual
Yeah, I don't think so Google - De-installed.
