Ratings and Reviews
Not usable at the museum.
Lovely, informative & fun
The image quality is amazing. The IR and x-ray versions are fascinating. I have not yet put them on the big screen but will soon. Tons of information about each piece, the artist, the history and the collection related to each piece. Plenty to intrigue before you hit the in-app purchase level - well worth the price even if you never made a purchase. App clearly seems to be set up for future additional in-app offerings, which will be a welcome update down the road. I keep pulling it up on my phone to share with friends - always sparks conversation. Love it!
A little piece of the Prado in my pocket :)
And some things I hadn't picked up when I visited. A great way to show and tell when you recommend a stop to one of the great European fine art collections.
