The thumbnails are not automatically downloaded (orange arrow by default); the choice is for the user :); there are more than 1600 paintings and you can download part of them or whole with different possibilities:

*in main activity (1st Tab): menu/data management/download thumbnails/ then choose the painters or the paintings you want to download (you can choose All also :)
*in gallery: if a thumbnail is not downloaded (orange arrow), you can long press on it (with newest version of QuintessArt 2.2.0 ); it will ask you to download this particular thumbnail or all the thumbnails of this gallery; this menu is also available in /menu/gallery/download thumbnails of this gallery; the menu is also available when you click on a thumbnail/informations or download the associated painting/ report button (most left) then download thumbnail

*in Quiz: long press the thumbnail; it will ask you to download the missing thumbnail or all the thumbnails of this Quiz; the menu is also available in /menu/data








With the new version, you can share several pictures with your contacts (bookmarks/notes/paintings) or upload them to picasa/flickr and post pictures via twitter-like apps or facebook.

QuintessArt is available in French and English; if you have problems with default language on your device, you can go to: "main activity/menu/settings/application/language =>modify" and choose your language; the descriptions/ titles/Questions/answers/biographies for paintings/quiz (in gallery/search/slideshow/quiz) will be forced to the language you've chosen (the UI will remain in your default language.

video Demo on youtube for QuintessArt are made with version 1.1.0: http://youtu.be/A5tB9Kpe5vM and http://youtu.be/GXk9_HX14hI

You can see changelogs to see the improvements since :)

If for some reasons QuintessArt crashes while viewing a painting,you can go back to this painting with "recents" button in main activity.
You can also retrieve recently visited galleries in gallery tab, menu/gallery/previous galleries.





If a custom message invites you to "download/reload/quit" due to initialization problem,you can ignore/escape this message:mostly QuintessArt will complete the unfinished tasks itself :)

Main error that occurs in QuintessArt is "out of memory error".it is due to an optimization difficulty when managing heavy images in Android.we're working on it :)

Complete Tips are available in "1st Tab/menu/help/Tips" or http://quintessart.blogspot.com or http://quintessart.blogspot.com/p/ti...intessart.html


Enjoy with QuintessArt :)
