Founded in 1925, Apollo is one of the world’s oldest and most highly respected magazines on the visual arts.
Published monthly (but with a summer double issue for July-August), it offers the greatest editorial diversity of any art magazine – covering everything from antiquities to contemporary work. Recent editions have included exclusive new photographic portraits of Grayson Perry by Derry Moore and reviews of the new Greek & Roman Galleries at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in a special collaborative edition with the museum.
International in scope, every edition of Apollo contains up-to-the-minute news from the art world with expert information on the market, authoritative guidance on collecting, and reviews and previews of exhibitions worldwide. Apollo is also the place to find searching interviews with major collectors and important personalities from the arts: recent highlights include Lord Rothschild on his major additions to the collection at Waddesdon Manor and the artist Richard Long talking about the inspiration for his projects.
Consistently regarded as the most prestigious and authoritative of all art magazines, Apollo is the media partner of choice for an impressive list of museums and institutions. Recent collaborative editions have included special issues in partnership with The J. Paul Getty Museum and The Yale Center for British Art.
The iPad/iPhone edition brings you selected pages from the latest issue as soon as it is published. Within the application you can upgrade to full access, which brings you every page of the issue and a searchable archive of back issues to July/August 2010. Issues are not sold individually - for the duration of your subscription you have access to every issue in this archive.
During your subscription you can sync back issues to your device. These will remain in place if your subscription expires, unless your device removes them (for example when running low on disk space). Re-downloading issues requires a current subscription.
• Swipe or tap the page edges to flip to next/previous page.
• Use the animated thumbnail view to flick through the pages.
• Pinch or double-tap pages to zoom.
• Switch between single or double-page view.
• Search the current issue or the archive.
• Tap any page links to web sites, email addresses, phone numbers or maps.

• Sync the latest issue to your device for offline reading (requires wi-fi).

Ratings and Reviews
Even The Ads Are Cool
The free app gives a preview of the current issue and allows you to scroll the first couple of pages: cover, editorial, contents pages. Contents pages have clickable links to current events in Arts world e.g. Exhibitions, Auctions etc. If you click to read an article you get prompted to subscribe: £40 is a bit steep for me but tempting. Would make a great gift for an art-lover. There are adverts but from major galleries so adverts display paintings, fine furniture, suits of armour etc - I love lingering over the ads! Note to self: find some way to screen capture so you can keep the images. Anyway, the app may be limited but its free content is still worthwhile having as source of sophisticated eye candy images and links to other free content on the web.
Works well on iPad
Works well for me as a subscriber, reading and navigating the issues with ease on my iPad.
Not really suited for iPhone and poor functionality
This is a cumbersome app. It is illegible on an iPhone owing to the type size and formatting. Perhaps it is fine legibility-wise for iPad. However, even on a desktop it is slow to load and there is no obvious way to print a multi-page article (more than two pages) in one go using the 'printable pdf' click. If there is, it's well hidden. It clearly uses a magazine software template that really is really not up to the job.
