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

Developer Response ,

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

Developer Response ,

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!

Absolute life changing App!

I work in the art field and just found this app! I had a few paintings that I didn’t know who painted them. The app not only brought up the name, date and artist, but also a complete description of the artist life!
