Ratings and Reviews
A visual treat that continues to surprise me
I got this app on a whim, expecting to ditch it after a couple of days. But I keep coming back because it shows me such a wide range of creative items. Visuals are intelligently laid out, and you can go deeper and see more info and photos on any given topic with simply a click or swipe.
Smooth to use and well designed. I’m hooked!
Interesting but malfunctioning
Like other people I downloaded looking for the find your portrait feature which doesn't seem to be available in the UK... but to be fair it's not advertised on the official app description. Plus the rest of the app still looks interesting so I don't mind having installed it. the bigger problem is that it is very very buggy. Things fail or take a long time to load, the search bar malfunctions so I can't see what I'm typing etc - surprised at this from a google product. Hopefully an update will arrive soon?
Excellent fine art app
A gift for any lover of the arts. Very easy to navigate, intuitively. The links from artwork to gallery are clever and the information about each piece concise. To be able to zoom in and look at brushwork and detail is useful. My favourite arts based app so far. Well done.
