Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles.

    I didn’t get the 8th day christmas gift from itunes. I tried during four hours without any success. Once, I found the right page, but there were no gift to download.
    This is very disappointing.How can I receive this gift now ?
    Each day, I need to make a search to find the link. Itunes doesn’t send any mail to my address this time as it was the previous years. Sometimes it even says that I haven’t any account, that I need to install Itunes. Yesterday, I also found that a song from Benabar was offered. But as I leave in Switzerland, I could not have it. I do not even know what was the gift for Swiss people.
    Very bad service this year !!!!!

    I have been charged £0.99 for this song when it was supposed to be free through the 12 days of christmas app. I followed the link on the app as normal. However, the funds debited my account today.

    I would like this refunded. Please advise me of the steps I need to take to receive a refund. Thanks.
