"Best iPad Reference App" -- App Store editorial team. Art Authority for iPad transports you to an enthralling, real-world art museum filled with works by over 1500 of the western world's greatest artists, from ancient times to today. 100,000 paintings and sculptures, organized into eight period-specific rooms, each room a gateway to a whole museum's worth of art. Choose an artist by movement or name, and become instantly immersed in an exhibition devoted just to that artist. Search for and compare different artists' works by title, subject or location, or just wander at random and get lost in the art.

"An experience unlike any other" -- The NY Times. Art Authority's works are professionally framed and hung on textured walls, accompanied by title, date and other details. Works are displayed chronologically, with previews of related items providing added context. You can learn about an artist's life and works, or travel beyond the bounds of a traditional museum and view and compare works in a full-screen slideshow or scrolling thumbnail display. You can see and understand the actual size of works through "Art Real Size," and with "Art Like This" you can even view exhibits of similar works.

Does something really catch your eye? Purchase a museum-approved reproduction and take it home with you!

"Visually dazzling" -- MacObserver. There are period overviews, timelines, histories and videos. From the earliest creative pieces to the latest modern and contemporary works, Art Authority provides a stunningly displayed, carefully selected, well organized view of the western art world. It's part world-class art museum, part academic reference library and part digital coffee-table book. It's also part magic. An art musem like no other!

Laughably inadequate

Absurd app. The "contemporary" art isn't. No conceptual art, new media etc.

Ganz im Gegensatz zu meinen Vorrednern bin ich extrem begeistert von dieser App. Die Bildqualität ist hervorragend, die Möglichkeiten der Ansichten ausgesprochen gut.
Der Ladevorgang ist in der Tat recht langsam, aber im Museum renne ich auch nicht von Bild zu Bild. Sehr gut sind auch die Bildbeschreibungen, die selbst im Fullscreen Format kurz erscheinen und dann automatisch verschwinden, damit man sich auf die Gemälde konzentrieren kann. Für mich ist dieses App absolut gelungen.

Attraktive Idee, nach langer Reifezeit jetzt auch gute Realisierung!

Ich fand die Idee toll, mal in Ruhe in Kultur surfen zu können, und habe die App ohne Zögern gekauft.

Umso schlimmer war bei den frühen Versionen die Praxiserfahrung, und zwar wegen grottenschlechter Performance aufgrund von Anfänger-Programmierfehlern

Nach 3 Jahren sind mittlerweile (Version 4.4) aber alle Probleme beseitigt, und ich kann sie jedem rundum empfehlen. Deshalb revidiere ich mein Urteil jetzt von einem Stern auf fünf Sterne. Was drei Jahre Reifezeit doch ausmachen können.
