Fine Art Social Network of Independent Collectors Launches Mobile Version

Share Article

Savvy enthusiasts access personal collections, art friends, cool events, and breaking news all from the palm of their hand.

How many art collectors does it take to screw in a Dan Flavin lightbulb? Summon as many as you need with the new mobile version of the ARTKABINETT collector network website.

When visiting the fair at Art Basel, Christie's auctions, New York galleries, or a Miami vernissage, this new feature will enable user members to immediately share with each other their love of art like never before.

The raison d'etre of the ARTKABINETT fine art social network is to offer independent collectors a comprehensive platform to catalogue and share their private artworks with new acquantances and colleagues, all online. Highly customized design, layout, and software capability enable the website's collector members to contact, interact, and transact with other savvy collectors 24/7 anywhere in the world.

Over time, this specific social network has cultivated a savvy on-line community of collector enthusiasts who blog daily and submit ever-changing content, articles, videos, gallery notices, etc. As would be expected in our give-away world of social media, everything is totally free on the main site as well as on the mobile version. The mobile version is geared to the collector-on-the-go.

"The mobile version was necessary," states one of the advisory board members, "to enable me to interact with my art friends in New York, while accessing my collection in Paris, as I take the bullet train to London."

Younger members appreciate the platform's unique "facebook" factor which allows them to quickly locate and connect with other members at a happening gallery event or fun party -- as well as e-vite their new art friends to this cool collectors club.

One of the engineering challenges of the mobile phone site was to support as many of the main site features as possible, while simultaneously supporting quick uploads and correspondences. This was not an easy task given that this on-line community has tens of thousands of uploaded artworks, numerous private collectors, hundreds of videos, daily art article content, and instantaneous member updates.

And if that is not enough... the mobile site had to display all this information across multiple device platforms such as the iPhone, Blackberry, and Droid. Moreover, everything had to upload quickly over a 3G or other similar cellular phone network. This required revolutionary program design and implementation.

As with all the other aspects of one of the freshest and most compelling social networks to arrive on the interactive media scene, this mobile site is expected to morph over time -- utlyzing GPS-based "bump and grind" technology to enable instant transfer of artworks and information amongst user members.

Do not be surprised if at the next Art Basel, FIAC, Art Hong Kong, or Armory Show -- by merely following a flashing pin in the palm of your hand -- you will locate another savvy collector in The Main Hall, Aisle B, Row 10, Cubicle Q, beneath a giant red Jeff Koons puppy dog.

ARTKABINETT is the social network for fine art collectors where one can upload face picture and personal art collection -- large or small -- and browse other independent collectors. This free fun online experience allows independent savvy collectors to link up and share their passion for art.
