Google Arts and Culture

☀☀☀☀ The Google Arts and Culture app helps you explore everything from museums to historical landmarks. With audio-guided tours, journalists (or anyone) can get a sense of a place without going. Learn about the Statue of Liberty’s construction. See the Taj Mahal. Get access to places that are restricted to the public. Still, the tours have a flaw. They use photographs rather than video, the images blurring as a user turns to see the whole 360-degree scene. Environmental sound is absent as well. Overall, however, the potential for this app is immense. — Kyle Dowd
