Really great but...

That little “Google Arts and Culture” banner that always comes down annoys the life out of me. I understand why you would have it there, but its presence stops me from becoming absorbed in a painting. The art should come before your self promo! Like get that moneyyyyyy bish but don’t interfere with the Hopper. Also I would like to see more work from artists such as Bacon, or Freud, or Wyeth, but there’s a lot of other artists on there already and I’m having fun looking at different people’s work, so it’s not a massive issue

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?
