Smartify is an app designed to enrich the experience of visiting a museum or gallery. At participating venues, users can photograph a work to access detailed contextual information on the work and the artist who created it. The Smartify website describes the goal of this approach: "to re-frame the use of smartphones as engagement rather than a distraction," and to, "help people make meaningful connections with art." Users can add art to their own personal gallery in the app to revisit and further explore. A list of participating venues can be found on the Smartify website, along with information for venues on how they can participate. Smartify is available for iOS and Android devices.
