What's New in Version 5.1.22
Bugfixes and minor improvements
A nearly wonderful app
What a great way to decompress: by perusing some of the world's best art and culture. The work that has gone into this app is tremendous.
However, it has a glaring flaw: the “Google” logo is ubiquitous, and you can’t hide it when you’re zooming in on a masterpiece. This adds an Orwellian tinge to the whole thing, which is a shame.
Google needs to make it easier to save and share high resolution images of the art work otherwise the app is a 1 star as far as I’m concerned.
