A “Shazam” for the art world
Art lovers, there is now an app which allows you to identify artworks instantly. Just scan the painting, and Smartify will tell you everything you need to know about it. The app was launched at the Royal Academy of Arts in London in October and is already in use in some of the world's major museums, including the National Gallery in London, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, The Met in New York, etc… It’s free, available in seven languages, and there are many interesting features, including one that allows you to save your favourite works and share it with other art fans. shazam (interjection) like abracadabra!
