It may seem strange that one of the most important museums in the world does not yet have an app.
So we thought of using the power offered by the PharoSuite system to produce the app you can see.
In a short time, it has obtained thousands of downoloads and has become the most downloaded and appreciated app on the stores in relation to the Uffizi Gallery.
In this case, not being an official app, we were unable to take advantage of the beacon functionality.
Not having an indoor location mechanism, we have introduced the image recognition feature to help visitors immediately recognize the artworks by framing them with the camera.
The audio guide that wasn’t there before: accessible, multilangual, intuitive, it’s going to help you better identify and understand the artworks of the Uffizi Gallery.
