  • As usual, Chicago not included?

    By Ericka S-R
    I have friends in random places all over the US doing the portrait selfie. I live in downtown Chicago and it’s not available here? Absurd.
  • Good things but not all accessible

    By Splent
    I live in Illinois. There are a ton of things that are available on this app, but it’s just not very user friendly. Plus, the facial recognition feature does not work in my state. Why is that?
  • No selfie stuff... is that because... Texas?

    By SeriouslyDave
    I’m traveling and decided to try the selfie stuff. Can’t find it but have been given the impression it’s because I’m in Texas. Is this due to one of the old Blue Laws Texas used to have... or still does? I’m sad 😟🤪
  • Don’t bother

    By crystal_ree
    If you live in the Lone Star State you can use this app to play... so I give you 1 Star
  • Portrait Match Available in NJ

    By Video Ranger
    Some have vague similarities but many do not. If you tap on the pictures, it gives some historical description of the individuals matched. You can make different expressions and get different sets of matches, including ugly bizarre contorted expressions and it gives you a return. I don't think the individuals pictured would have been pleased that they were matched. Amusing app to have fun with. Somewhat disappointed that the search for an artist did not include one of my favorites, Folon. Most of the pictures are of dusty oils that you would find in musty old museums, not the type of place that I would visit.
  • Rabbit hole app--in a good way!

    By Me5678andy
    I am enjoying this app so far. I love the articles. I really enjoy the art history articles. My favorite so far has been the 360 ° roof top view of the Taj Mahal. Incredible!! No problems so far!
  • Fun with my family because it’s cold and I can’t go to the bar

    By Bill_Mo
    Yeah, I liked it. I’m a simple man from Florida these artsy fartsy pictures are fun, I ain’t no women though. I got matched with a lady.
  • Where is the selfie comparison feature?

    By Jd315
    What a bummer!

    By jennykaye415
    The title says it all... I AM OBSESSED. I love seeing the selfie results that pop up, almost like that of a dna test, based upon the picture I take. I really love art and history so dorme it is more for the discovery of these pieces than to see myself in them, but perhaps it appeases my vanity as well, lol. Highly recommended app that I still have yet to fully explore! Endless discoveries await you- enjoy! Xoxo
