Very worthwhile

There are many rip-off art apps in iTunes, using out of copyright work to make a quick profit. This isn't one of them. The developers have made a real effort to produce something satisfying. Many (many!) artists, not just one, zoomable pics, links to websites you can download more images from straight into the app... It's good. There are limitations - the pics aren't all crystal clear (I think better quality would genuinely make file size unmanageable), there's no Japanese art (yet - they take suggestions seriously), you can't organise artists by movement, country or add artists yourself. The lack of more recent art is explained by copyright, but you can download from websites for those who are included. But these things don't take away from the fact that you can have an extensive art database at your finger tips for 59p!!! it's a bargain in every sense of the word. A word again about picture quality - the pics are still inspirational & wonderful - mentioning the limitations is more about managing expectation.

A brilliant & ever-evolving work in progress!

I love this app. I can happily spend ages flicking through the artists and expanding my gallery, and I've discovered a number of wonderful works that way. I like the fact you can remove artists from the main list, but can also reinstate them at any time - handy as it allows you to refine your personal artist list to reflect your own tastes, while still having access to the information on removed artists if needed. The ability to send pictures to your camera reel is also great for setting wallpaper and individual contact images - I love this app!

Of course, new artists seem to be being added all the time, and with that in mind, I'd like to put in requests for Alexandre Cabanel, Arthur Rackham and John Tenniel. :)

Keep up the good work!

No iPad version yet....

This app is quite good as far as an iPhone art reference app goes. But I specifically bought this because they said they were developing an iPad version and they would upgrade for free. That was before the iPad even came out, so I've been waiting for months. The app is not expensive so I'm not kicking up a huge fuss, but that was the only reason I bought it as I don't think the iPhone is the best platform for this sort of thing. I've since bought Art Authority which despite the price I'm happy with as I got what I paid for regardless of price....

Please get your finger out developers! I promise to give a more favourable review if you do.
