New York's MET unveils new iPhone app

A handful of knowledge


This week, as thousands flock to New York City for fashion week, the Metropolitan Museum of Art announced the launch of its latest online application The Met, which is already available for free download at the App Store

Different to the MET's iPad app, the museums newest product is simple and easy to use, as The Met app's content is to serve essentially as a mobile information desk that feeds visitors up-to-date information on the museum's exhibits and programmes.

Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, said "With so much to see and do at the Met on a daily basis, we wanted to create a simple yet personalized way for our community to find the art, exhibitions, and events that matter most to them. It will be great for both New Yorkers and everyone in our global community who wants to stay connected with the Met from anywhere in the world."

The Met app will feature must-see highlights of a collection, a way to purchase an admission, activities for families and children and much more.

"The Metropolitan Museum is one of the world's most important cultural institutions-and the museum's new app will help open peoples' eyes to its extraordinary collection and programmes like never before." added Campbell.
