Editors’ Notes

Scan, identify and save the world's artworks to your device.

meh

Rumithepurr

They made comments to themselves on September 20th. 5 starts and all saying ‘great app’ when you go down you will find real feedbacks from real people about the app. I saw news on Twitter and I loved the idea even though app Name was kinda ridiculous and lame. I tried to use app but it definitely has problems like not instant scanning. I hope someone else gonna make this idea better with a better system and name.

Developer Response

Hi Rumithepurr, Thanks for your interest in Smartify and sorry to hear you were frustrated with the experience. The app will not scan 'any' artwork, but only art at venues where we are live. This is due to copyright and to get quality information. ;) You can see the full list in the app. We're working on including more.

This app is a data mining scam

Mug620

This app ADVERTISES that it is to identify art- when you download it it will not even start without granting location access- reason being that it is only for museums and needs to know which museum you're at- get the F out of here with that, like the museum is going to fail to identify its display pieces. They just want access to your data.
