Smartfiy is the app that gives you information about a piece of art by just scanning the art piece with your smartphone. The Smartfiy app was launched last month at the Royal Academy of Arts and has already been dubbed as “a Shazam for the art world”. Smartify is already in use in over 30 of the world’s major galleries and museums, including the National Gallery in London, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, The Met in New York and LACMA in Los Angeles.
