Art on your iPhone!!

Love Art, Art in your pocket
A very interesting app for your iPhone is Love Art. I observed the app in the App store today and downloaded it immediately. Love art enables the iPhone user to see artworks in The National Gallery in London. A nice feature for art lovers: Van Gogh, da Vinci and Rembrandt all in your pocket instead of on your wall!

How does it work?
By installing love art on your phone you can watch artworks that are shown in the famous National Gallery in London. The National Gallery has one of the biggest art collections in Europe. The National Gallery has now developed the iPhone application that shows pictures of the artworks, that are described with audio tours. The app has information about art from different artists among who: Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent van Gogh, Sandro Boticelli, Rembrandt van Rijn, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Johannes Vermeer.

How to install?
The Love Art app is available for free in the iTunes app store. Be aware: the app is approximately 200 MB's so you might want to download Love Art with your PC instead of on your phone to save you some data on your carrier's dataplan.

1. Launch iTunes
2. Connect your iPhone
3. Click on Store -> Withdraw Authorization and click OK
4. Choose on Store -> Authorize this computer

The problem should be resolved now. If this is not the case you should restore your iPhone to factory defaults and restart the process.
