-Other crash fixes from submitted bug reports.
Zoom, Resolution and Search
Sure, it's worth a dollar, but...
No zoom in the app itself, but after saving to your photo album you can zoom a bit.
All pieces have the same (poor) resolution. After being shrunk to fit the screen (iPodTouch 2g) zoom will take something that was originally 1/3 inch and increase it to a tic over 1 inch.
Not good enough to learn to paint! For instance, Monet's Lady on a Swing... from the top of her hat to the top of her collar is 1/3 inch after zooming. I can't see any brush work at all. Monet's impressionist stuff is rich in obvious brush strokes, but not in this app.
After doing a search and getting a bunch of pinky nails, clicking on one is hit or miss. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Keep trying, maybe third time's a charm. Maybe fifth. Sometimes first. It's like roulette.
Searching for Monet or Pollock turns up nothing, until you add their first name. And then you get 2 Jackson Pollocks and 1 Michael Jackson. (shake head, no no no)
Needs better search
You can search by artist but that is all. Needs, for instance, a category search, a search by period, style, medium etc. It also should conform more closely to app standards for navigation and controls, info, settings. Also cannot magnify images at all.
Update: The bug was fixed and the app works great. Thank you for fixing this app.
