Today marks five years since the iPad first went on sale and, to celebrate, the superb app Art Authority (which also celebrates its fifth anniversary) is slashing its price from $9.99 to zero for one day only.

For those unfamiliar with it, Art Authority is a fantastic resource for any art-lover, with 75,000 high-resolution classic artworks stored in one place. These include paintings and sculptures by more than 1,000 major western artists, with an easy-to-use interface that divides the works up into different periods — so you’ll have no problem sorting your Byzantine paintings from your Baroque, or your Romantics from your Renaissance.
