Share This:


Art Authority for iPad is a hugely impressive virtual art museum for the iPad. I reviewed it last year and said it was a true flagship app for the iPad. It very much still is, and this weekend it’s on sale for half price – $4.99.

Here’s a list of some of its excellent features:

Access to 10GB worth of art optimized for quality and download speed through our servers (works still under copyright come from authorized servers)
– Early, Renaissance, Baroque, Romantic, Impressionist, Modern, Contemporary and American rooms
– Dozens of artists per room, listed by movement or nationality
– Period overviews, timelines and histories
– A searchable index of all 1000+ artists, as well as for each room
– Searchable indexes of major titles, subjects and locations
– Art Near Me: search for art based on your location
– Continuous shuffle through all art or by period
– Captions with work title, date, location and other details
– Hyperlinks provide access to in-depth information on artists, major works and locations
– Full-screen slideshow display, with user-settable transitions, Ken Burns motion effect, music
– Gallery-like, scrolling thumbnail view shows how works have evolved over time, aids in comparisons and exploration
– Offline access to works previously viewed
– Save works to Favorites or the Photos app; use them in the digital picture frame and home screen wallpaper

And here’s an App Store link for Art Authority for iPad; it’s priced at $4.99 just for this weekend.
