The Push to Include an “Art” Category on Apple’s App Store
+ArtApp wants to make art a prominent category in the application market as finding art-related apps currently takes much digging
Shopping. Lifestyle. Education. These are some of the categories that you can browse when searching for something new on Apple’s App Store. But two artists and a gallerist want to add one more category to the mix: Art. +ArtApp—created by Paulina Bebecka, Seth Indigo Carnes and Serkan Ozkaya—is a petition and website that hopes to add the Art category to the App Store.
As the creators explain, most of the apps related to art or museums usually get classified into the Education and Lifestyle categories. Without an official Art category, finding art-related apps takes a little digging.
