Subject: Yes, We Need an AW APP!

Subject: Yes, We Need an AW APP! When it was first mentioned if I would use an AW app, I said "no" I would probably not use it. The more I have thought about it, the more I like the idea. I can see myself voting in the Doctor’s office while waiting! If members could participate in this new app to vote on each photo it would be perfect. We love that part besides viewing and commenting because it makes people feel good that their friends thought so much about their work to be entered in Pic of the Day. I just want to vote for the photo with the choices given: thumbs-up (like the photo), love the photo by adding to my favorites, add to Pic of the Day, View Pic of the Day, follow the artist, view daily uploads, view featured artists, comment a photo and check my rank of the month on the Dashboard, read the Idea Board & Member Discussions, vote in the contests and check the featured artist list. These voting items should be on the bottom of each picture NOT on the side like in the main website, because it does not show on a phone currently. This is hurting AW because people cannot vote from their phones and some do not have a computer! That takes away all the fun! Can we have an app? Please!

Thanks for the feedback Ginger. We are glad you shared your opinion with us about this. Most of the survey feedback for the app was very positive and in favor of a dedicated app. It now comes down to cost, features and timeline, which is to be determined at this point.

ArtWanted is truly an amazing site for artists and art lovers to not only see and share art, but it's also an amazing community to meet other artists. The ArtWanted community is more than just that - the ArtWanted community is like a family. Having an app would allow us to really bring ArtWanted anywhere on the go. It would be easier and quicker to comment on amazing art, or enter a contest, upload new artwork, or to just see some amazing art. Please please please could we have an app. I want to thank the ArtWanted team for creating an amazing site and looking forward to new innovative ideas and features that you create in the future. Kudos to you all.

Yes,surely a great idea.. Thank you Ginger for your input and thank you ArtWanted for being there for us. I do art when I have to wait in the Doctor's or Dentist's room,that is thumbnail drawings/sketches of my planned paintings.
