  • A few tweaks needed for mobile users

    I use this app on my iphone and ipad. A couple things keep me from giving it five stars. One, the galleries of artists don't often include their full oeuvre but rather a few of their selected works. On the same note, some artists with relevant and incredible works don’t exist in this app. Two, why is the mobile UI so oddly conposed? I spent a few moments trying to find my bookmarked favorite paintings before i realized that i have to click on my own profile and scroll through the drop-down menu to find it. Why not include it as a bottom tab? Finally, PLEASE add the option automatically rotate the screen when going back and forth from landscape to portrait mode. This is my biggest gripe with this app. I want to be able to see the paintings at the widest aspect ratio relevant to the corresponding size of the painting and I thought it was rather strange that this app doesn't have that yet. These are a few of the reasons why i keep defaulting to Pinterest. This app has potential, but it does need work.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
