United launches iPhone app - Art Collector

13 July 2010 | United Galleries has launched a new online art community, called Artwatch. Director Robert Buratti says the iPhone app went live in the Apple iTunes Store on 8 July 2010 and he says it has been received ''incredibly well'' so far.

''This is just the first version, with an upgrade (version 1.2) scheduled at the end of July which will expand the stockroom selection, news feeds, artist biographies, artwork information and sale information.''
He adds the gallery is also developing ''individual apps for represented artists at United Galleries to further extend the reach of their work worldwide''.

The launch comes shortly after Sydney's Michael Reid Fine Art announced its plans to launch a gallery app on iTunes, which Reid says is just waiting on the green light from Apple before it goes live.
