The Artkick app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone as a way to connect to and view incredibly pieces of artwork but here's the cool part: you'll be able to vie them on your laptop, desktop, or SmartTV. That’s right you can turn each of those devices into a stunning digital gallery.

Artkick makes it possible for you to display all your most favorite pictures, artwork, photographs from artists, and really create a gallery tailor made to you. The app makes it possible to view all kinds of photographs from public sources and you can import your photos from Picasa, Facebook, SmugMug, Flickr, Dropbox, and Instagram. For instance you can take a walk through a number of world-famous museums and even read details about the photograph or piece of art right on your screen. If you happen to be an art student this is a great way to learn about and appreciate art from around the world.
