A free mobile app which guides visitors around more than 65 art and architectural works on display at UN Headquarters has been launched.

According to Vincenzo Pugliese, Chief of UN Guided Tours, the app will "enhance visitors' experience" and give insight into the artworks donated by Member States.

More than 1,000 visitors take a tour around UN Headquarters in New York every day.

The app provides historical background on the artworks, and the people who donated them.

Andita Listyarini joined Mr Pugliese for a sneak preview of the new app, together with co-developer, Indra Wijaya.
