Saints have always been an important theme in art. For millennia, they have fascinated artists and viewers alike and are still a popular motif that captures our emotions. These spiritual beings play significant roles in world religions such as Christianity. In the New Testament and scriptures of other faiths, saints carry out God’s will, protect and guide human beings.

Cumbersome / lacking substance
...on a positive note, the images are beautiful and the app was free.
As a Catholic, I stumbled upon this app in looking for information *about* saints (sadly there are none) and this came in an anemic 2nd. The choice of images is "gappy" and there is no information about the "history" or life of the saint.
As an Art Educator (one who seeks and shares graphics on a consistent basis), I found the format of the app cumbersome and awkward. Having the credit line (image info) presented in standard format and directly beneath the image (as opposed to a partial overlay that you have to tap on/off) would be more helpful.
If you're just looking to "shop" random images ( with no need to categorize by style/historical date/region) perhaps this would work for you.
