Tate brings Joan Miro exhibition to the iPhone

Tate Joan Miro iPhone appYour phone may well already serve as an mp3 player, camera, address book and have any number of other app-fueled uses, so it’s little surprise to see art gallery guidebook added to the list.

This week the Tate launched an iPhone/iPad app for its retrospective of the Spanish surrealist painter Joan Miro.

An interesting use of the technology, it’s the Tate’s third exhibition app – following themed apps for its Gauguin and Muybridge shows last year – and is intended as part visitor guide, part memento.

Curiously, it appears to have been released some six weeks after the exhibition opened. But, at £1.79 to download, it will at least be substantially cheaper than the accompanying souvenir book – if somewhat less impressive on your coffee table.
