App Reviews

  • Please Fix!

    By F1shY
    This was a great app but the map feature no longer works with bookmarks. It's most likely the fault of Apple's flawed iOS update but the developers of this app need to stay on top of it. Unfortunate since this was an excellent app.
  • Smooth User Experience and Packed with Info

    By courtv44
    I hope Four stars is as good as getting five. The only reason I did not give this app Five Stars is because my experience with Art apps is strong, but I am not an Industry Expert- yet! I do believe this application offers more information than any of the others on the iOS market and the user experience has been the best I have yet to come by when seeking information about exhibits artists and galleries throughout New York City and surrounding region. Furthermore it is not limited to a specific Event like many others I've used, e.g., Art Basel (although grateful for event specific tools as well). I look forward to getting more use of the info provided - the content heads deserve a pat on the back (developers of course, as well). Okay the entire team gets a high five! Thanks for all of your hard work and providing Artists and Fans with useful info. I hope users are enjoying across the globe. Is there a way to get updates on app and sources? I will look into answering this question and I do apologize in advance should it already be readily available. My best!
  • Released way too soon

    By straphanger
    This app may eventually be okay for what it is. But there are a few no-brainer features missing. You can't find the exhibits at a specific museum without first being at the location which makes it ridiculously difficult to plan ahead. In addition, there is no search function. The "art talk" section is pointless since on any given day there are literally dozens of events like that at the Met alone, but it only shows two items -- one vague listing for the Cloisters and another somewhere else. Overall, seems like a very good idea that could eventually be useable with a LOT more development. Pretty useless right now.
  • a great way to stay up on art events

    never had a problem with the app. fairly easy to use. good times.
  • Indispensable guide

    By David_P_123
    The map function uses an Apple Maps interface, dropping pins for each gallery/museum/location from all of the shows I have bookmarked. An indispensable timesaver.
  • Great App

    By Gallery Hopping NYC
    I gave this app 5 stars but is anything ever really perfect? Well in this case I would say it's about as good as it gets when it comes to having your very own Gallery/Museum concierge in you pocket to help you navigate the NYC art scene. NYC always has a lot of everything and sometime you have an idea of what you want to do but have no idea where to start. This app is very useful tool when you decide to do an artsy farsty activity. The features, user friendly interface get you going in a few minutes. The Galleries are organized by area or borough. If you're not familiar with the city, you can pull up a map to help you locate galleries close to you. There are details of the artists being shown and one of my favorite details in the app is how long an exhibit will be at a particular gallery. This honestly is one of my favorite apps when it comes to a guide in the city.
  • Nice app!

    Like it!
  • Good Info but Missed Opportunities

    By DerwP
    The actual information they have within the app is par excellance. But it’s presented in a very dumb way. For example: if I select “Nearby,” it’d because I want to see what’s, well, nearby. It shows the hours of galleries, but why doesn’t it filter out the ones that are closed if it has access to the phone clock? Why won’t it notify me that a show I have bookmarked is closing tomorrow? Like I said: good information if I dedicate time to reading everything, but it could be so much cleverer and helpful if it tried.
  • Excellent!!

    By David Dowell
    Every time I visit New York, I spend an hour with this app to decide what I want to see on my visit. The app's coverage is comprehensive, descriptions of shows accurate and succinct, and overall organization and search functions very good. The ability to search in your vicinity makes it easy to find shows and galleries when you are on the go. Overall, love this app!! If you are interested in art in Nee York, get the app! No doubt Tokyo is the same. I much wish there was a London Art Beat!
  • Super helpful

    By shaunanthoney
    Great app for an art viewing novice like myself. Unless I'm missing something, the only thing I'd love to see that I don't currently is some sort of search feature.
