How does it work?
Open the app and place the banknote in front of the camera, it's that simple!
The banknote denomination is instantly read aloud via your device's speaker. In the same time, large contrasting characters will appear on the screen.

On silent mode, the denomination will be transformed into vibrations. This feature helps you to quickly identify and count bills even in noisy environments or when privacy is needed.

Without the Internet, Cash Reader can still be used. After you download the currency database, you don't need an internet connection for reading the paper bills, so you can now use the app at any time and anywhere.

The Screen Reader is a perfect match for Cash Reader, it works smooth and fast, adjusting to any size of text selected in your Accessibility settings.

Cash Reader contains many other handy and thoughtful features based on community feedback.

Gets the job done, but seems a bit less reliable than MoneyReader

For now, I am using the 14 day free trial of this app. I have been using the MoneyReader app, but have heard that that might go away eventually, so I wanted to have something else ready for when that eventuality occurred. I downloaded this app, and it works fine, but on the other hand, when I was searching for a dollar bill to be read, it was making up currency denominations just sitting on my couch. I will most likely purchased this app should money reader ever stop working, but for now, I don’t see it being my go to app.

Thank you for your kind feedback! If you were using "All the currencies at once" mode, then I am afraid this behavior will occur from time to time as Cash Reader has to identify from millions of possible banknote features at that time. If you know for sure that you have USD, then you can choose worry-free just this single currency. 
Also, when the device is not moving, then the identification will stop and continue once with reinitiating the movement, to save the battery. So, this makes me think that your couch has a pattern or color similar to any of the 60 currencies that we support. :) You can always help us to improve this by sending us Photos for Inspection when this happens. Thank you so much for taking the time to try Cash Reader!

Nice app

I like the vibration feature, which announces the denomination in a non-verbal way. I also like that you can recognize bills without a data connection. Money Reader could do this, but you can no longer download that from the App Store. Depending on your use case, this may still be a better option, as it recognizes many currencies Money Reader did not. Also, as new bills with different designs come out, since Money Reader is no longer in deveropment apparently, Myoung Reader will likely not recogniue those. This app also does a lot of curency recognition not found in apps such as Seeing AI and iNote. Both of these apps are free, but you get what you pay for.

Freedom and independence

This is a wonderful app for blind users. I am an American touring here in Thailand. I do not speak much Thai and spoken English here is not spoken regularly either. So, paying bills in a restaurant and receiving Thai currency change can be an issue at times. However, when I pay my bill and I am given the change in the receipt book I no longer need to hassle with the waitress to tell me the Thai Boht bills I am handed back to me. I bought the lifetime subscription and I am more than pleased I did. Thanks for this app and all your hard work. In its development.
