Art House apps

A social community for all sides of the art business

Most of the art portals that are to be seen as apps have tended to be rather staid looking affairs that cater purely for the collector. So, it's probably about time that somebody thought about adding a more social element to things and making a place for artists, dealers, potential buyers and agents to all feel at home in. MyArtPlot is such a thing! An art and craft app for creatives of all  types. No flashy gimmicks or groovy graphics. This is an app that exists to be the portal between all aspects of the art industry and makes it easier for the artist to keep in touch with their ...  More

A million dollar view of Van Gogh

I'll never forget watching the excellent Jodie Foster directed film Little Man Tate and hearing the boy's analysis of Vincent Van Gogh's painting 'Irises.' When asked why the Dutch impressionist master had painted just one white iris in a sea of blue ones, he said simply "because he was lonely" and that changed my whole perception of the painting and I fell in love with his art forever. Van Gogh Art Essentials for iOS brings art to the app store with this virtual museum of Vincent's work that contains hundreds of his masterpieces in high definition as well as detailed artwork and biography ...  More

Localize your London entertainment guide

London is a very big city and on any given week there is something like 600 concerts to choose from featuring everything from Irish folk to top 40 to the very best classical orchestras in the world. There's also around 30 different theatrical performances playing not to mention the 11000 bars and restaurants at your disposal. So if you are a visitor to the 'Big Smoke,' as it used to be known, it's almost a full time job to research where to go. You could pick up a copy of Timeout and a bunch of other mags or log on to any number of websites but even then, it's not easy to keep up to ...  More

Follow the Winters' as they renovate a house

They've been telling us over the last few months that the US economy is well on the way to recovery and that recovery is being led by home construction. That certainly isn't the case in Europe as yet but it's the American economy that tends to pull the rest of the world out of the doldrums. I tend to look at the US economy as being like an ocean liner. It takes a while to get up to speed but, when it does get going, it's hard to stop. By my reckoning, the US has just found second gear. So, getting back to the construction industry, we have here a very useful and informative app put ...  More
