Overdamped, makers of hit museum apps, Van Gogh HD and Da Vinci HD just launched three new titles to add to their Artist series: Ingres HD, Titian HD and my new favorite, Caravaggio HD.
Now they are teaming up with AppAdvice to give you a chance to bring an artist you love home to your iPad or iPhone for free.
What a treat for me to have the tempestuous passionate works of one of art’s most notorious bad boys, Caravaggio, on my iPad at last.
But whatever your taste in art, from Renaissance to the Impressionist, from Europe to Asia, if you are an art lover Overdamped probably makes an app you want.
I came to know the company when I reviewed Vermeer HD. I called the GUI and features the gold standard for art viewing apps. These latest offerings are no exception.
To thank all of you for your support in making their apps hits, Overdamped is sponsoring a really exciting giveaway this weekend.
They have donated at least two codes for each of their popular apps (except those rated 17+ by Apple, as that is in violation of App Store policies).
These are the titles up for grabs:
- Van Gogh HD
- Hokusai HD
- Hiroshige HD
- Ingres HD
- Vermeer HD
- Matisse HD
- Turner HD
- Bruegel HD
- Goya HD
- Donatello HD
- Pissarro HD
- Delacroix HD
- Rousseau HD
- Friedrich HD
- Arcimboldo HD
- Bazille HD
- Ingres HD
- Titian HD
- Caravaggio HD
If you don’t see your favorite, be it Michelangelo or Monet, that doesn’t mean they don’t make it, only that Apple has determined the content may not be suitable for all viewers.
Still, look for Cezanne, Gauguin, Raphael, Manet, Renoir, Rembrandt, Rodin, and more in the 55-title collection. They are an extraordinary value at $1.99 for a universal, portable museum.
UPDATE 4/15/11: Wow! The devs at overdamped are seriously nice. They saw your comments and since they can’t bring you the 17+ titles for free, they did the next best thing. The dropped the price! You can grab any of their titles for only .99 this weekend!
