Virtual Art Collection: Art Authority for iPad

It allows you to view over 1000 artists and over 50,000 art pieces. This is the only art app that contains a collection this big.

The setup of this app is an impressive virtual experience allowing you to browse are rooms such Early, Renaissance, Romantic, Impressionist, Modern, and Contemporary to name a few. Each room is different and is themed towards the type of art era you are looking at. Art Authority for the iPad creates a great realistic experience.

Searching artwork has several options that allow you to search specific rooms or search by artist, title, subject, and location.

Paintings that you enjoy can be saved to your pictures folder on your iPad. The application usually needs internet connection to view this app, but the art you previously viewed can be viewed offline.

Art Authority is in high definition so you can zoom in to the art like paintings and see the details it has. This app uses the large multi-touch display which is once again an app that fully uses the iPad’s full HD capabilities.
