"I knew we had the app right when a consultant didn’t get back to me all afternoon because he had started a uJigsawArt competition with his office mate.”
Paris, FRANCE (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
Paris is abuzz: the International Salon du Dessin is coming in April. Amidst the French capital's fervor over the art fair, Parisian art company Atelier Mends is pleased to announce release of the uJigsawArt jigsaw puzzle games and gaming app on the iTunes App Store. The app lets players choose from dozens of art masterpieces to create their own virtual puzzles for unusually real play. Works include art by famous artists such as da Vinci, Van Gogh and Monet. A click of the button and players can post completed puzzles to Facebook and Twitter, or they can go to the Apple Game Center to compete with friends.
Why this app? “I love art,” says Deborah Mends, President of Atelier Mends. “And I want to share it. uJigsawArt grew out of that wish. I knew we had the app right when a consultant didn’t get back to me all afternoon because he had started a uJigsawArt competition with his office mate.”
For many years Atelier Mends has been where Parisians go to learn how to draw, deepen their understanding of famous art and artists or expand their artistic creativity. Expansion of its activity on the internet is a natural progression, with the website Famous Artists Fan Club.com for learning about famous art and artists, and How To Draw Journey.com for learning how to draw. Now, in line with its goal of combining art and enjoyment, Atelier Mends has just released its iPhone/iPad app, uJigsawArt, for art jigsaw puzzle games and gaming fun.
uJigsawArt, the updated and expanded version of the popular uJigsawArt Lite, now offers three image collections for a total of 52 art masterpieces, including Famous Paintings, Famous Artists and Famous Drawings, just in time for art-lovers and professionals come to Paris for the International Salon du Dessin art fair (10-15 April) to have a little entertainment on breaks between stand visits.
Users have unusually realistic control over the pieces that can be rotated, swept into heaps or fitted into place. After creating puzzles of 4 to 300 pieces, players can move around the table virtually, personalize their game, time themselves and track top scores, in addition to competing with friends on the Apple Games Center.
uJigsawArt is now available for .99 cents in the United States and priced accordingly in other countries. The app is available worldwide in English on the iTunes App Store. The Impressionism paintings collection is in preparation and others will follow.
Atelier Mends is a Parisian art studio and company offering workshops in artistic creativity, drawing and appreciation of famous art and artists. Known for “turning art into passion”, Atelier Mends seeks innovative ways to combine art and fun, guiding people to discover or recover their artistic selves.
