It can be hard to appreciate art if you don’t know the story behind it.
That’s seemingly the problem Smartify — the “art” is bolded in their logo — wants to solve.

Technology entrepreneurs in London have devised a smartphone app called Smartify which uses image recognition software to scan, identify and save digital copies of artist creations onto a user’s device.
