Turn your Android Device Into a Museum with QuintessArt
A brand new application concept for the Android platform. If you are an art major or are simply attracted to the beautiful and solemn art masterpieces that marked periods in humanity, you must definitely try out QuintessArt by XDA member masterdevx. This app will turn your Android device into a virtual art gallery where you will find paintings by the greatest artists in history. The app is currently in the works (currently on version 2.2), but it should allow you to look up pieces by name, artist, period, style, and more. The app currently has over 1600 paintings and counting, so if you want to learn a thing or two about Monet, Da Vinci, and the rest, you should certainly drop by the thread.
Please leave some feedback for the dev to make this app better in case there are any bugs.
