  • I love this app, but…

    By mKosturakis
    Since the moment I downloaded this app, I loved it. I love the easy access to a variety of artworks and their history, also that if you want to explore about any art content, it takes you to the correct websites. The only thing I have to complain is that the recent apps version does not support the screen rotation. I have it on my phone and on my iPad, and I can’t enjoy the app like I used too. On my phone I liked to rotate it to see the images better, and on my iPad because of its case. It was convenient for me. I hope they fix it.
  • App doesn’t open

    By CinM78
    The app has been showing an error message for months… I was hoping it was fix but still every time I try to open it I receive the message that says “Something went wrong. An error occurred check your connection and try again”
  • Get rid of widget borders

    By myke.
    Always loved the app primarily used with the widget. Now you’ve added this awful wide white border to the widgets. It’s very distracting from the art photo being displayed. I’m putting my review at 1 star until you get this fixed. No need for any borders on a widget especially on a phone. Please put it back to being frameless. You made the widgets worse!
  • Connection issues??

    The website is fun and interesting, but I cannot access the app, as every time I try to open the app, it tells me I have connection issues, and I cannot access any of the app past the loading screen. Would not recommend based off of my own experiences.

  • App

    Great app
  • Please fix search engine

    By Lovelysvalentine
    I love this app and use it fairly often I also love the widget so you can see new work everyday. I would ask that you please fix the search engine often when looking for watercolor works the medium is gouache and although they are similar it is not the same. I would also like to be able to search different mediums for an artist most artists don’t just work with one medium.
  • crashes

  • this app would be fabulous, if it could actually open

    By jenjeppy
    I have tried repeatedly to even open the app, but every time I try it crashes before I can get past the first loading screen. Not only have I deleted and redownloaded the app, but I have shut down my device. I have an iphone 13, so it should be compatible I do not believe that it is anything on my end, but rather a bug in you system.
