Not worth 1.99. Content too limited. Disappointing.

The detail and photos of the 10 paintings in the collection is fine. But I was expecting much more content considering the size and quality of the Mauritshuis collection. This is more of an advertisement for the developer of the software. If more art works are added later it might be worth it but for now don’t waste your money like I did.

Thank you

I am so grateful to those who developed this app. I live in a place with no great museums, and the gift of being able to see these artworks is great indeed. Thank you.

Not like web/PC ,

Great as far as it goes

But it needs to go farther, much farther into the collection
