This app is quite limited in its ability to recognize artwork. Seems to only recognize famous museum pieces, and not much else. Those it does, happens in just seconds so no need to hold your phone for any length of time, it won't help. Very disappointed in this app. Don't bother if you're trying to identify a painting.

Nice app if you're interested in art and artists. I was really disappointed however because it will only try to identify artworks that you take a picture of thru the app and not of any you have saved. Tried it on a painting of ours but all it did was say "scanning" but nothing else. There are NO instructions about how to use the scanning feature. Tried scanning our Renoir and Van Gogh prints without success.

Hi Dana, Smartify can identify pictures of artworks saved in your phone if you go on Explore and tap on the search icon! We partner with museums individually, you can for instance use Smartify at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in DC, at the Frank Lloyd Foundation in Arizona or at the Nelson-Atkins museum of art in Missouri.

I recently changed my Echo Show wallpaper to fine art. The Echo's range is extraordinary - it's an almost 5-star experience - with one glaring exception: it doesn't tell you who painted what you're looking at. So the loveliest paintings flicking through my wallpaper rotation went undocumented until this wonderful thing happened: SMARTIFY! It doesn't recognize everything, even some pieces that are quite old, but they're building their database. In the meantime, when it works, it works a dream!

Hi Mada! Thank youk, we are indeed working hard to add new art collections and audioguides. The map allows you to find each museum, gallery and castle around you that partnered with Smartify to make art and culture accessible. We are conducting research to understand more about your experience and would love to have a chat:
