Smartify is a social enterprise whose mission is to help people connect with art. We believe nothing beats the physical experience of visiting a museum and want to make it easy to discover, remember and share art. If you are inspired by our story and work, get in touch: email@example.com.
For this release we focused on improving your experience when visiting a physical museum or gallery; while also displaying more personalised artworks to stimulate and inspire.
- When visiting an art venue, we will now offer a 'Venue Takeover'. This filtering feature means that tours, maps and artworks will be specific to venue you are in (or near!)
- On the Smartify Explore page, we have tweaked our algorithms to showcase more personalised and thematic artworks based on your own location and preferences.
If you have any cool ideas or feedback, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a review.
We take all input into account and try to reply to everyone. Thank you!
In 4.0.1 we have fixed a bug for iOS 10, 11 and 12 users.

I don't have anything to complain about this application. Everything works well. I can see clear the information of pictures.

Thanks for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed using Smartify!
Put your phone away
Just saw someone using this in a gallery. They were literally in front of amazing artwork -- staring at their phone screen. Everyone around was rolling their eyes as this person proceeded to strafe around the artwork, standing on people's feet, to rotate the virtual view. Don't be that person.
By all means look up more information about art but do it before/after taking in the art first-hand. And definitely don't look up information with your phone up in the air whilst stood infront a crowd of people trying to crane around you. I've never seen anything so pathetic.
Now to Devs: list which museums are covered in the app in the App Store description to save wasting people's time.
Limited to certain museums
The app only recognizes works from certain museums which have a partnership with the app developers. So for the time being it’s only useful if you want to find out more about a painting from one of these museums. Hopefully the list of supported galleries will grow in due course. If like me you downloaded the app expecting it to recognise a wide variety of art work from around the world you will probably be disappointed. In fairness to the app this is not what the app was designed for.

Hi LiquidMonkey, Thanks very much for your interest in Smartify. Sorry to hear you are frustrated with the limited number of works. We partner with each museum individually to ensure quality information and copyrights permission. We are working as fast as possible to launch at many more venues!
