Customer Reviews

Fun! I've enjoyed it...but it's slow..

There was a lot of work put into this app-a ton of stuff to explore. Well worth a dollar to have so much in one place, however the app is slow to respond at times. I'm sure the developer will roll out updates in the future that will resolve that though.

I do wish it was a little more gesture friendly, like the slideshow feature for example..the only options available are 'back' and the menu icon. I wish there was a zoom capability, and I wasn't able to get the slideshow to move to the next pic for some reason...I kept trying to flick it to the next one, but only those two icons were popping up.

Don't be fooled by the naysayers, this app is wonderful. Accept it for what it is not for what you want it to be. So if your favorite artist isn't here anymore, move on for Pete's sake. The developers are working around difficult copyright laws it's not their fault they can't show some artists. Love this for what it is showing youand unbelievably right in the palm of your hand. Don't pass this incredible app up. Just be happy they are not charging more because this is most definitely worth much more This is one of my all time favorite apps ever. Please keep up the good work. 

Mixed review, but worth $1

This app has its flaws but is honestly worth the money. The collection of works is vast, though focused primarily on pre-modern artists. There are some inaccuracies and gaps in information, the app could use some updating to correct this. But worth the money, if only because it exposes the user to artists they may have never seen. In the world of useless, mind-numbing apps out there, this is a breath of fresh air, even with its issues.
One huge complaint- if you take the quiz on here, prepare for the most horrifying, ear-spitting sound effects of children cheering/screaming at you.
Overall, recommended.
