    Art Alert is simply the most amazing art app available. The breath and depth of reach into the world of art museums and their offings worldwide is stunning. This app allows one to visit hundreds of the worlds art museums and places where art of all types is available from the comfort of your iPad. Plus more museum locations and art is available with every update, (which is frequent). This is truly a first shot in an art revolution. Keep up the great work. And, oh I need to mention that a sister app called "Art Authority" an app which explores art and the people that create it Is available to deepen ones art experience.
  • Needs much more content

    I like art authority but this app would be far more useful if all the museums that have pins also had content instead of a web address. It also does not have many museums that have works that would be worthy of a visit in some major cities. This app could be great but the developers have lot of work to update the app to make it worthwhile enough to charge money for it.
  • Crazy: So Few and Some Location So Wrong

    I downloaded an updated version, which was advertized as correcting location errors and also adding more museums ... I'm sorry, but I disagree ... I do not see the correction for the 30-mile error as indicated below .... The only indicated museum in San Antonio, Texas is about 30 miles or so away from it's red pin. Maybe Microsoft can come to your aid??? There is much more than one museum in SA; same goes for Austin and Houston too. I using an iPad with Art Authority on it. At the moment, this app is not very helpful.
  • Dismal museum listings

    I bought the Art Alert app yesterday, expecting it would be a comprehensive guide to art museums and galleries in the cities I visit. I was appalled to find that for Houston, Texas, which some consider the most art-filled city between Chicago and LA, was represented by only one listing. Mind you, the Menil is a world-class collection, but it is secondary to the astounding, encyclopedic collections of the numerous galleries and house museums of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston! What were the developers thinking? What other cities are so poorly represented?

    Very limited in number of sites (3 for Rome?) and one has a serious mistake, locating a work at Santa MariaMaggiore that is not there!
