Looking for the kind of iPad-based intellectual stimulation that hours of Angry Birds just can't provide? Then the new app from the Gagosian Gallery—the world-renowned institution that has played host to contemporary art from Pollack to Basquiat—may do the trick. A vivid, innovatively interactive look at the pieces currently hanging on the walls of the Gagosian's 11 international galleries, the app offers an incredible zoom feature for studying minute details and 360-degree panning for taking in installations. It also provides interviews with artists, curators, and historians, as well as catalogs of past and future displays. But the best part of this quarterly updated app? It's free. To download it now, go to www.gagosian.com.
