Didn’t scan my tattoo nor give story behind why I got it

Imagine if this app could be used to scan everything you happen to see on any given day? Check the list of locations the app is currently available in so as to avoid making yourself look like a moron lol.. great app I was impressing my gf until she caught me using it lol

Thanks for your great feedback! Scanning tattoos is a good idea too 😉

Lacking many artists

Lacking many artists and struggling to detect art. I have a Francis bacon art work book and it can’t recognize any of the photos. There’s a painting at my local library I’ve always liked but the librarians don’t know where it’s from, and the app doesn’t even detect it as a painting. The system linking artists to art and recommending others is excellent though so the functionality of recognizing art gets a 0 and the rest gets a 4

Sorry to hear the app didn't quite live up to your expectations. Smartify scanning works best in museums which have added their works to our platform. You can search through the locations already using Smartify on the app or enable your location on the accounts page so we can suggest nearby venues!

Bad design Florida ,


Obviously not all artwork is in the public domain nor is all art even catalogued. Try scanning a picture of the Mona Lisa or something in the public realm and it works beautifully. Well-designed and a great platform for art museums everywhere. The more the museums that make use of this the better it gets! One app for all museums!

So glad you enjoyed using it, we definitely agree about having one app for all museums - hopefully one day!
