After updating, all of my scans disappeared, but they were quickly restored (within 24 hours) after emailing the developer. My scans are now easier to find than before. I give four stars rather than 5 because I preferred the black app with white writing (the white background gets lost on my screen). But overall, it's a nice improvement!

Hi Kellie. Thanks so much for your review. We're sorry for those missing scans but glad we were able to restore them for you nice and quickly! Dark mode is coming soon, and you'll be able to change this under Profile > Settings.

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.

How is that even a released app? Scans aren't saved, nor objects scanned unless saved manually as favorites. Map and nearby places need to be located manually, because there's no correspondence to current location, not even a country. No confirmation/verification email after signing up for account. And you even need a separate account for the shop, which is just a webpage inside the app. Notifications and Appearance settings aren't working (no reaction on tap).
