Very Disappointed

I am giving this app a one star until Google stops being a whiny child and fixes the app so people in Texas and Illinois can actually use the “Is your portrait in a museum?” I find it ridiculous that they are playing this game because they do not like the laws Texas has passed that require companies to let users know about biometric scanning and to agree to it before use. I’m very disappointed in Google today and I’m not sure they will ever get my approval back. I’ve been an avid fan of all Google products for years now and have told everyone I know that using Chrome is your best choice. After this though annoyance and snub from Google, they have lost my support. And I really hope they can realize how childish they are being and stop throwing their temper tantrum and act like adults. Admitting their fault and sending out a formal apology is the only way they will get back into my good graces.


A wonderful app that is not just another way to take selfies

Every artist needs to learn the techniques of masters if they truly want to excel in their work, and being able to zoom into the minute details of a painting with ease is the most helpful and fascinating thing in the world.

As for the selfie function, one being angry because they cannot access it and become flattered by a painting that looks sort of similar to their facial features is just another example of narcissism and 1st world problems. Download the app if you want to be truly amazed by the skill work of a human being hundreds of years ago, or stick with Snapchat.
