App Reviews

  • Very Disappointed

    By vascasa
    I am giving this app a one star until Google stops being a whiny child and fixes the app so people in Texas and Illinois can actually use the “Is your portrait in a museum?” I find it ridiculous that they are playing this game because they do not like the laws Texas has passed that require companies to let users know about biometric scanning and to agree to it before use. I’m very disappointed in Google today and I’m not sure they will ever get my approval back. I’ve been an avid fan of all Google products for years now and have told everyone I know that using Chrome is your best choice. After this though annoyance and snub from Google, they have lost my support. And I really hope they can realize how childish they are being and stop throwing their temper tantrum and act like adults. Admitting their fault and sending out a formal apology is the only way they will get back into my good graces.
  • A wonderful app that is not just another way to take selfies

    By THEDEAK7474
    Every artist needs to learn the techniques of masters if they truly want to excel in their work, and being able to zoom into the minute details of a painting with ease is the most helpful and fascinating thing in the world. As for the selfie function, one being angry because they cannot access it and become flattered by a painting that looks sort of similar to their facial features is just another example of narcissism and 1st world problems. Download the app if you want to be truly amazed by the skill work of a human being hundreds of years ago, or stick with Snapchat.
  • Needs a lot of work

    By Kerrynet32
    Excellent app in theory however the programming needs a lot of work. Very poor in app functionality such as moving smoothly between images and back to previous menu pages, landscape view is off, when zooming into images you are then unable to continue scrolling to next image without first returning to previous page. Also, many artist pieces are missing. I scrolled through all of the Surrealism pieces looking for Salvador Dali and did not find a single piece by him. Then when I go to Dali’s page on your app, there are barely any of most famous pieces. That is the case for many artists offered on this app. Another example would be Hieronymous Bosch. If these things were all corrected, you would have an excellent app and I will happily change my rating.
  • Limited content access

    By Mel-Nonnie
    This app has been blowing up on social media over the last few days. However, to have a popular feature like the selfie comparison only available in certain geographical locations is ridiculous. I live less than an hour from downtown Chicago, not a remote area by any means. This was very frustrating and disappointing. It seems like an unnecessary restriction, and poor planning on the part of the app developers. If you download an app, you should be able to access the same content, regardless of where you live. The art the app accesses isn’t limited by location, so why only allow the function in certain spots. It’s irritating that I wasted fifteen minutes of my life looking through the app trying to find the feature, only to finally realize it just isn’t there. Incredibly irritating.
  • Location Restriction

    By mlchicago1871
    Echoing what many have said about the location restriction on the selfie feature. I can understand Google didn’t expect the selfie feature to go viral and were thus unprepared. However, the limited access was not clearly communicated and the fact that it seems the coastal cities got access and middle America did not seems misguided. Overall, like the way the app allows you to interact with art and exposes you to art you’re not familiar with. The UI and overall experience seems on par with Google’s other great products. One last point of feedback would be to incorporate even smaller art institutions. I live in Chicago and the many diverse art institutions of the city are not well represented.
  • Selfie option DOES work!

    By jolinskyparadise
    I'm not sure why people are writing reviews, saying that the selfie option doesn't work, because it worked perfectly fine for me. It took me two seconds to scroll down the home page, find the selfie option, read about how it is new and experimental, take a selfie, and find pieces that resembled me. Maybe it only works on certain devices, but as the owner of an iPhone 6, I assure you, the selfie option works phenomenally. Also, there are countless informational texts and articles regarding art(ists). This app is amazing and I 10/10 recommend!
  • Limiting Art Education

    By Clockwerk
    The app should have come with a notification that the “Is Your Portrait In A Museum” feature is only available in some states. I can’t believe it’s not available in Texas, and apparently not in Illinois either! Think of all the kids who are missing out on this great chance to get connected with Art History through a trending tech app. And for what? Because Google doesn’t want to be the boogeyman about scanning people’s face biometrics? Sad. Look, people are only scared of that when info gets kept secretly, or when things aren’t disclosed. Ironically, by not letting users in Texas and Illinois know that that feature isn’t available upfront, they’re promoting a technological paranoia. This works against everything they’re trying to do, and wastes everyone’s time (like mine, writing this review.)
  • Legal Fail. Is Google becoming big brother?

    By thechris623
    Google needs to own up to what they’re doing with biometric face scans, and either address the issue with Texas residents or remove the feature altogether. Banning an entire state from using the features on their app is exclusionist, and I doubt if Google’s intentions were pure that they would refrain from simply including a legal notice for Texas residents (based on state laws, TX residents have the right to know what biometric face scans are used for; Google refuses to comply with this, and instead they just opted out entire LARGE state out of this app’s premier feature.) I’ve never been disappointed in a Google product—until now (okay, Google+ sucked too). I’m considering trading in my Google Home for an Apple Speaker, if Google doesn’t improve transparency with its users. This is absurd.
  • This makes you art so hard

    By Miah.s
    I’ve never arted so hard in my life. after getting this app I literally arted everywhere !! I couldn’t even contain the art that was coming out of me! i’ve arted my pants, I’ve arted at work, and I art everywhere now. One time I arted sooo hard that I had to pull over ! My girlfriend (well ex now) would get so jealous watching me art all over the place, so she left me. She called me ‘disgusting’ because I’d art so much around her. Arting in public has become one of my new found hobbies. So thanks google, I never new I could art so much in my life.
  • Fine for art, not for the face match feature

    By N_to_the_PO
    Like most, I downloaded this app to use the portrait face match feature. I was able to use it once, but then when I got back into the app later in the day the feature was no longer available. I understand that it is only available in certain locations but I don’t understand why it worked in my location (OKC) in the morning and then it disappeared in the afternoon. My husband’s phone still has the feature so that makes it even more confusing. Despite that major screw up with the face match capability, it is a cool app if you have any interest in art.
