Has 2 or 3 different features to get a superficial knowledge of paintings. Probably good if you are about to visit a museum somewhere and want to impress your company/date. Understood, that to have access to these paintings images, it would probably take up a lot of memory, but having to be online is definitely a drawback for me. Probably not a problem for someone who has their wifi turned on all the time or has access to lots of wifi spots. Probably good on a smart phone. Paintings are rendered well. Nice to have if you are doing some traveling.

This is a beautiful and well done app for any one who wants to learn more about famous paintings. Quiz mode or explore on your own mode. Can pinch zoom to see more detail of a painting.

I was excited seeing this an an app, but it is quite limited and one can only play the game with an internet connection. I had hope for something a little more engaging. Still, the image quality is good if you just want the app to look at some famous paintings.

This is a nice app. Especially for my boys who are homeschooled. You can tap on the image and it enlarges. I also like the quiz feature. I wish there were more artists especially American ones like O'keeffe, Moses or Rockwell... Maybe they will update one day. Love the app icon....looks nice on my carousel :0)

to fill me and my home with joy!

The apt Famous Paintings far exceeded my expectations. The number and variety of paintings, the clarity, the ability to focus in close make it a valuable resource for art teachers, art students, artists and anyone who enjoys the pleasure of looking at great works of art. This is the most you can get for the least amount of money.

I bought this app thinking I could use it during my trips on the bus, but found out that you can only see the pictures if your connected to wifi. Also, there is no information given about the paintings besides the titles and painter. If you click the title, it will bring you to Wikipedia, to that painters bio, or that paintings title.

It was pretty useless to me, since when I am near a wifi connection I also have use to a regular pc, which means I have more things to do than play this.

This application doesn't work without an Internet connection. The images load very slowly and the quality is poor. The default size of the images is less than 1/4 of the screen; and the resolution is too low when expanded to full screen.
