If you're in a gallery and looking to obtain art information without asking the curator, the 'Magnus' app is designed to help you out. Working almost like the Shazam for artwork, the 'Magnus' app works by identifying the artwork you snapped a picture of and offering enhanced information about it.

Aside from letting you know who the artist is and what the name of the artwork is, the 'Magnus' app will also let you know how much it's worth. Best of all, the 'Magnus' app not only provides art information, but also the best spots to find artwork in your neighborhood. The location-based connectivity allows you to find museums and galleries, and obtain their hours all straight from the app.

The 'Magnus' app is currently only available for use in New York with support for Berlin and London coming soon.
