    Hello everybody!

    I am new in Apple and maybe I am making a stupid question.

    The Google Art Project requires Flash to be able to view it. The iPad Safari web browser does not support Flash but there are several third party browsers that indirectly support Flash by hosting on their company web server. These have varying degrees of success - none of them are perfect in every respect so you might need to wait to see if other Forum members have viewed the Google project with one of these third-party browsers before purchasing one.

    Oh - oh - oh - I nearly forgot....


    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Apple - Support - Manuals

    It’s free too.

    There is a free app in the store called ArtProject. It offers access to the Google Art Project. Mixed but mostly positive reviews. I have not tried it yet myself, but I thing I'll go download it now.

    Thanks - twerppoet - I've been wanting to get access to the Google Art Project from my iPad, but thought it wasn't really possible - OK, could try to use one of those 'flash compatible' browsers but they have mixed reviews....

    Is there *anything* about the iPad you don't know? You should (seriously) consider writing all this great advice down - I'd be the first-in-line to buy your book.

    Ok, kind of annoying using the free version. You can zoom in, but it pops back after you take your fingers back off the screen. That's not so bad, but then it pops a notification in your face about upgrading to stay zoomed, every time. There are other annoyingly ugly reminders scattered around.

    Esentialy the intrusive remiders to upgrade make this more of a demo than a lite version of the app. It lookes very usable, even well done otherwise. Take a look and decide if is worth the $2.99 price for the in app primium upgrade. You won't want to use the free version for long.

    I look most of it up when I see a question here. Like I said, just a lot of time on my hands. If I ever write a book it will be the forum's fault, not mine. ;)

    google art project

    I could not find the art project app. Do you have any updates on this? I really have difficulty understanding how there can be a google art project app for ipad2 nd then, you cannot use it.

    It does not appear to be available in the store anymore. I have no idea how long it has been gone or why it was pulled. It was called ArtProject when it was available.
