It would be nice if you could click a popup like in Bing and see info about the painting and artist

Great if you're into classical art.

As a Windows 10 PC and Phone user, it is nice to have such a great app! If you enable it, a great feature is to have the "lock screen" wallpaper. The app will rotate through beautiful artwork right on your lock screen! That alone is worth this (free) app. However, you can easily see based on your current location, or wherever you are, any artwork and museums in the city you are in. Perfect for pre-planning a trip with your PC, or while you are in that city with your phone.

Love this app. Wish it was also on iOS and Android so that I could use it on all my devices. Wish it also had modern art and would let you choose different styles depending on your mood. But, still 5* nonetheless.

So far everything seems fine except that I don't know how to turn on the lockscreen function.
