ADHD synopsis: Elles at Seattle Art Museum was my favorite. What’s yours?
These were all actually pretty good as I’d downloaded them based on favorable reviews in the electronic store. Note also, that I’ve had apps from MoMA, LACMA, Guggenheim, etc. on my phone for a while. This is just a roundup of what I found that I hadn’t seen or tried before.
I found that some of my favorite apps were no more than an illustrated audio tour, but the content was well-written and compelling. In short, you don’t need to wow me with your newfangled app technologies, just give me information presented in a compelling way and show me what you’re talking about and I’m happy.
High marks for High Museum of Art “Girl with a Pearl Earring,” Rodin Museum, Museum of London (Google maps-based; cool esp. if you’re in London), Istanbul Modern, and all of the Korean museum apps (these and several others produced by the Korea Tourism Organization), which have some of the highest production values and are definitely worth checking out.
The “Smart Museum” is only a smart choice if you want museums in Russia. It’s a pretty solid seeming listing of hundreds if not thousands of Russian museums and has nothing to do with the Smart Museum of Art in Chicago, as I had thought it would. It definitely made me long for an exploratory spelunk in the museums of the former CCCP.
