There is a deluge of iPhone and iPad Apps in the market these days. Sotheby’s also has brought out its latest app and it is pretty good if you are interested in art collection or just art for art’s sake for that matter. To put it simply, with the help of this app, you will be kept abreast of all the updates in the art market, about artists and trends. All you have to do to get this free app, is to go to the nearest iTunes App store and download it.
Once downloaded you will have access to the latest podcasts, catalogues for upcoming sales and auction results. If something catches your eye, then you can even place an absentee bid. But first you will have to login. It currently features Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s installations showcased at the Tate Modern for Frieze Week. This is just a specimen of what you can have access to in the art world. A must have for art aficionados.
Sotheby’s.com also has a new addition worth checking out. It’s mobile site can be accessed through any web-enabled handset, including the Blackberry, Android, iPhone, iPad among others. Through BidNow, you will be able to bid for auctions being held anywhere in the world.
