Artfinder is a magazine jam-packed with feature stories, exclusive interviews and beautiful collections; a wish list where you can save your favorite works of art and make purchases with just a few taps; and the art of the day, which will hopefully inspire you and teach you a little something about the creativity in the world around you.
Artfinder will prompt you to connect to the app using an email address and/or your Facebook account. If you think there’s a chance you’ll want to receive alerts as to when new Art of the Day or special offers have been added, then signing up for an account with your email address is a must.
Artfinder is a magazine all about art — but you can buy the pieces you like! Check out features like Art of the Day, Abstract Art, Photography, Features and others.
Artfinder displays all its content in well-labeled squares that are easy to scroll through. Categories include Abstract Art, Editor’s Picks, Artists to Watch, 60-Second Interviews, Photography, Guides, Gallery of the Week, Style and Trends, Learn, specific artist features, and so many others.
Swipe to the right at any time in order to reveal the menu, where you can access the Magazine, your Profile and Feedback (where you can contact Artfinder directly).
While you’re browsing, click on any individual square of content for more information. Or, to view the menu, swipe anywhere on the screen to the right. A gray menu will be revealed, featuring the following tabs:
Home: What’s new on Artfinder
Magazine: Stories, interviews and collections
Profile: Browse your wish list and manage your settings
Feedback: Let Artfinder know your thoughts
Tap on any work of art for background on the artist and details about the individual piece.
In the Magazine, click on any item for more information, including any of the Art of the Day. You’ll be able to see the entire work of art, plus read about the artist and view other works by the same artist. See something you like? Click the star icon at the top of the page to save it to your favorites. Also, you can share the art via email and social media using the Share button at top right.
You can also view details on the partner (gallery), view price, edition number, and other must-know information for art enthusiasts.
When you’re viewing an individual work of art, you can scroll downward for all the details on it, including the artist, gallery, price and availability. Details shown also include the country in which the work of art was created, the edition number, whether or not the work is signed and numbered, and its dimensions. Very brief descriptions of both the artist and the partner (gallery) are also shown, as well as any related stories.
And if you come across a piece you decide you just can’t live without, I have good news: It can be yours. Go ahead and click that Buy button to view the full damage — I mean, grand total — including the cost of shipping.
Artfinder’s extends a promise to its customers: It offers every customer a 30-day, no-risk, money-back guarantee, and will arrange the collection of any purchase at no cost to the customer.
While the Feedback tab provides you with a way to easily contact the Artfinder team, the Profile tab enables you to easily adjust your settings, including whether you want to receive notifications from Artfinder for a new Art of the Day or special offers.

From the Profile tab you can also view your wish list items, meaning all the works of art you’ve starred while browsing the app’s content. Click on any artwork for more information or to make a purchase.
If you have any appreciation whatsoever for art — or even if you don’t — you may be surprised at how much time you end up spending scrolling through all the works of art and lusting after certain pieces.
At the most, you may discover an artist or piece that resonates with you so deeply that you just have to have it. And at the least, you will garner some creative inspiration or a few minutes to relax and tap into the more artistic side of your mind. The app’s simplicity, as well as its well-organized and easy-to-navigate format, make it that much easier to get lost in.
