[prMac.com] Ashland, Oregon - Art Authority, developers of the award-winning line of classic art apps, announced that, today only, Art Authority for iPad is free from the App Store, celebrating the 5-year anniversary of the app and the groundbreaking device that made the app and so much else possible, Apple's iPad. Both shipped on April 3, 2010, and both quickly caught users' fancy.
Art Authority for iPad, normally $9.99, is the only iPad Reference app named to both of Apple's Rewind "best of" lists. It brings 75,000 high-resolution classic works of art to users' fingertips. Hailed as "an experience unlike any other," the app professionally displays paintings and sculptures by over 1000 major artists. In addition to being a favorite of art lovers worldwide, Art Authority for iPad and its age-approrpiate K12 edition have dramatically improved the quality of art education, with one educator commenting that "Art Authority has really changed art history."
Art Authority for Macintosh and iPhone bring similar functionality to these devices. All the details of the Art Authority line of apps are available on the Art Authority web site, and today's post on the Art Authority blog provides an overview of how the app has evolved in parallel with the iPad over the past five years.
Art Authority is the product of an innovative collaboration between two separate software companies, Open Door Networks and Project A. Art Authority's mission is the design, development and deployment of the best ways for users to experience art on their modern-day devices.
