Verso is a free digital publication about art, culture, and life behind-the-scenes at one of America's premiere museums. A hands-on, interactive magazine, Verso takes you behind the velvet rope, inside the vaults, and even inside the art using cutting edge technologies. How is technology changing the way you see art? With videos, interviews, games, and interactive storytelling, it's the art world as you've never seen it before—the museum uncrated.

I really like the 360 degree view of the new African gallery while listening to the curator explain how the objects could be seen from multiple dimensions now. It was also interesting to read about how the architects struggled with the four columns in the gallery and chose to make those columns a place to view art. In addition, I liked learning how the curator and architects listened to the community and decided NOT to paint the walls white. I have visited once and plan to return again. Other interactive feature were also great, including the ability see a Balthus painting close-up and look at the backs of several other paintings.
Interesting content from a fun perspective. I found the app easy to use -- well suited to the iPad Air. Beautiful.
But, please support retina images, then it would be perfect.
