Arthive Apps is a platform with which you can create iOS and Android mobile apps for any gallery, museum or artist in just a few days.
The editors of Arthive have released a series of platform-based applications dedicated to famous artists. We have collected a lot of materials, populated the collection with works and recorded several audio guides. Arthive Apps support multiple language interfaces, include an up-to-date feed, a collection of high quality images, a section with current exhibitions, a convenient search engine and detailed artist biographies. Many of the works are accompanied by descriptions and audio guides. Some applications support work recognition.
The applications are designed by well-known illustrators and professional interface designers. All information in the apps is updated in real time as it is added by the editors to the Arthive website. To date, five apps dedicated to famous artists and several guide apps to museum collections are already available. Apps devoted to Isaac Levitan, Valentin Serov, Leonardo da Vinci, Henri Matisse, and Ivan Shishkin will be released soon.
The Arthive Apps platform mission is to make mobile apps available to a wide range of art institutions, because having such apps in the smartphones of art lovers makes them closer to their favorite artists, museums, and works of art. The main barrier to «mobilizing» art has always been the complexity and high cost of mobile apps development. We solved these problems by creating the Arthive Apps platform and, having released a number of editorial apps, used them as an example of how convenient and easy it can be.
