Art Authority has always been very popular in Japan. The new Art Authority for the new iPad has certainly been no exception. Not only has it been the top-selling reference app for the past week, but it recently moved to the number 35 best-selling app overall. #35 may not sound like much, but out of 200,000 iPad apps, it’s pretty meaningful. For instance, as you can see below, that’s 10 better than Angry Birds Seasons (and at nearly three times the price).

They just love Art Authority in Japan! Not to toot our own horn too much, but here’s a recent review:

このアプリは素晴らしいです – ★★★★★

この金額でこれだけの作品をみれるなんて素晴らしすぎます。 もっと値段が高くても良いのではないでしょうか? 唯一欠点としては、一人の画家の作品が多すぎて、見たい作品を探すのが大変なぐらいです。

For those of us who don’t read Japanese, the operative word is

素晴らしい which means “amazing” or “awesome:) The review’s only complaint: too many works of art!
