Every Art Person Will Love These iPhone Apps
This is us- typing when crossing the street, instagramming when lunching with friends.

This is us- typing when crossing the street, instagramming when lunching with friends.
iPhone is our right hand and if it is not on the gram it didn’t happen, you know the drill.
Funny, the previous generation used paper calendars and maps and had to dial a taxi company from a landline, now we spend days in art fairs or art metropoles just with the flat rectangle box. Yes, we all have whatsapp, Uber, the gram, you name it, but we are not like the others right? We are art people and we need different applications to survive in the art world. Here is a bunch of apps that can make your art life much easier. Some of them your might have never heard of, others you will wonder why they are not in your phone already.

SeeSaw
