Phenomenal in every way!

To humanity: I am a photographer working on a “career” in documentary photography, and I have always been a massive fan of art, and how art can speak to the soul more than words to the ears. This app brings that voice of art to the soul. I have spent only a brief moment in the app, and found myself lost in its beauty.

To the developers: The one and only thing I would suggest is to have a “back” button that returns you to the previous page. There is so much to see and read and consume that when you need to go back a page you have to start over.

Thank you for bringing the voices of artists to the world in ways academic text books never can!!

What a Great App!

This is my first app review. I usually don't feel inclined to leave reviews, but this is exactly what I was looking for in an art app. It's free, clean-cut, and provides tons of insight into the art world. I took an art history course in college, and this app covers the material quite nicely. The only change I would make, is the ability to sort art movements by time period. Other than that, great job! Top notch effort, guys!
