    I expected a lot more!
    Wish I had notice I only had 15 minutes to decide. Now I am stuck with this crap app forever!

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

    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.
