I didn't even get to use it! Upon opening it let me type in my email and a password to create account, but the next page asks for your first name and last name. I typed it in, hit continue and both first and last name boxes highlighted red and said these fields are required. Ummm. My name is typed in there. So I deleted and retried 2 more times, and got the same error. There is no help or anything on that page, so I uninstalled the app! Thank you for nothing!

Absolutely useless. Downloaded it to try and identify a painting. Not only is the scan box set unchangeably as a square the pinch and zoom seems to have two preset distances only. And when I finally gave up getting it sized right and just hit scan after framing as best as I could, it just sat there for minutes. I tried multiple times. Then promptly uninstalled. Also requires you to give an email to access. Glad I gave my junk one.

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: info@smartify.org.uk
