Art Authority iPhone app Review


The Art Authority iPhone app is the largest comprehensive collection of classic art masterpieces available.  It contains a portfolio of over 1,000 of the world’s best artists.  You will get to see artwork from all of the major time periods and see photos of over 40,000 paintings and sculptures.


  • This app has all kinds of art from all different periods.  It includes the Romantic, Modern, Impressionist, Baroque, Gothic, Renaissance, Byzantine, Ancient, and Contemporary art periods
  • There is also a really cool section that is dedicated entirely to the artwork of America
  • With each period of art that is displayed on the app you will get to see the different movements and nationalities that are involved with each of them
  • There are over 1000 artists that are featured on the app and you can also get details on each of their time periods and also the history and full portfolios of each of the artists
  • The captions of the artwork will include information such as the date the location the work title and much more
  • There is a multi-touch interface that allows you to control the navigation of the app with ease.  You can either double tap the screen or pinch it in order to zoom in; you can also flick the images and rotate them as well
  • There is a display mode where you can view all of the photos in a full-screen slideshow.  This is nice because you can mess with the user-changeable transitions
  • You can scroll through photos just like you would in your normal gallery.  There are thumbnail views you can look at and you can see up to 60 different pictures at the same time.  All you have to do is shake the phone in order to bring up more photos
  • Once you find images that you like, you can save them to the Photo app and then either use them as a wallpaper or you can email or text them to other friends and family
  • You can also add your own music to any slideshow that you create on the app


This is an all-inclusive art app where you will be able to view the most timeless pieces of artwork that have ever been created.  You can also get history, background, and details on each of the different artists.  This is a great tool to have available when on a trip out to Europe or it can just make for great educational reading in your spare time.  If nothing else the beauty and majesty of the masterpieces will keep you entertained for hours on end.
