Louvre HD (US$ 1.99) is a magnificently done application that takes you on an online tour of one of the best collections of paints on the planet.

The application gives access to 2,300 paintings from the Louvre in Paris that can be seen in very higher resolution. Louvre HD itself isn’t really that large (only 76 MB), however requires a web link to access the high-resolution photos of the paints.

The jobs are arranged by century and cover 800 different artists. There is a fast search function, and paintings could be conserved to your iDevice or forwarded to good friends. The high-resolution images invite expedition, because you can two-finger zoom and actually explore these paint in great detail.

Louvre HD likewise has a slideshow mode with adjustable rate, and you could even choose some symphonic music to pay attention to in the background.

I assume the only point Louvre HD does not have is any type of in-depth info on the paintings or the artists. Links to Wikipedia or various other sources would be most welcome. Still, it’s challenging to suggest with the high quality of photos of the paintings. I spent a great deal of time analyzing and taking pleasure in the paintings I explored.

There is a free model of the app with only 400 paintings, and it will give you a preference of exactly how the application works. The free version has an in-app purchase attribute that permits you to upgrade to the comprehensive app. If you are actually visiting the Musée de Louvre, there is a wonderful free visitors lead app that will certainly aid you navigate the huge museum.

Louvre HD is a global app. I believed it would certainly have the most influence on my iPad, so that is where I evaluated it. iOS 5.0 or later is the minimum need, and the application is maximized for the iPhone 5 screen.
