Great notes about the art, but horizontal pictures display too small. No problem with vertical

A fantastic app for fans of The Art Institute of Chicago's Impressionist galleries. Seurat's "La Grande Jatte" was in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Disappointed. Expected more from an AI app. Doesn't fit screen, thus too small. Would keep if free, but not for $. Epic 4G Sprint

Hangs up. Worthless fire use in the museum.
