I was in Chelsea this weekend and came across Ellen who with her brother Patrick started the See Saw Map app for iOS. It's a gallery guide app for NYC galleries and their openings.
Until now I've been using Artforum's Artguide app, but that costs $2.99 and is still under the Skeuomorphic design of iOS6. See Saw Map is much cleaner and straightforward to use. At the moment it covers Manhattan and Brooklyn, but they are looking to expand to LA and beyond in the future. The app is free, so check it out; I think you'll like it. [iTunes]
Below are the features of the App:
• Search for artists and galleries, or browse by neighborhood.
• View and submit exhibition images.
• Always have the latest exhibition information and press releases handy. Even off-line in the subway.
• Track openings and shows that are closing soon so you’ll never miss an important exhibition. Plus: hours, website, and contact information for each gallery.
• Share exhibitions with friends via email, text, and social media.
• Check out the Editor’s Picks for popular exhibitions, under-the-radar recommendations, and critically acclaimed shows.
