Ratings and Reviews
The best art gallery app, in my opinion
The best art gallery app and one of my favorite apps. I used to have it for iPad, but had to give my iPad away and couldn't use it anymore. It was the only thing I really missed. Turns out it just has a separate listing from the iPad version so you don't get them both for one price, but I'll happily pay again for this awesome app.
There are two major periods I'm interested in artistically: the Romantic era and the Baroque era. What I can do with this app is shuffle the art and get about 20 (I forget exactly how many) paintings and rarely other art displayed. The key is to somehow display them on a TV or other large screen, like with Apple TV, and suddenly your paintings are filling up a wall space.
Some periods have more representation than others, and I don't know much about that besides Romantic and Baroque, but between those, I'll be having a good time with this app. Strong recommendation from me.
Outstanding Art application!!!
I just downloaded it in my iPhone 📲, and went through all its options. Fine work! No problems whatsoever. In fact, I recommended this app to my family, friends, and Twitter. Thanks! From Manhattan, NYC
Great app- I use it every day.
Especially on the iPad but this together with Daily Art are my go to’s. It should be an Editors choice.
