Check ID scans “PDF417” barcodes most commonly found on the back of driver's licenses and government issued ID cards.

No internet connection is required!
Check ID works without sending your data to any other party.
Privacy is paramount as no data from the scanned barcodes is saved or transmitted to any another computer. No analytics are collected at all.

Check ID will display the following fields from an identification card if available: name, date of birth, age, gender, hair color, eye color, height, weight, expiration date, and address information.

Check ID also includes a "Guest List" feature. Guests can be added to a list ahead of time from the Options screen, or they can be assigned a guest list after scanning their ID. Add guests to lists (e.g. VIP / Banned / etc) to welcome repeat customers.

The “Minimum Age” alert setting is user-configurable. Check ID will warn you when it sees a date of birth above or below the "Minimum Age".

Am I Missing something?

Why does it only work in portrait mode?

Otherwise simple if you are just checking age.

Developer Response ,

Version 2.0 just released, and it now works in all orientations on iPad! It’s a free update, but it requires iOS 11. Hope this helps!

Works fine

Do I have to pay 4.99 every month or is it one time please tell me

Developer Response ,

Check ID is just a one time upfront fee — no monthly or other in app purchases! Once you buy it, it will just work!

Good ID card reader

I really found this app useful. Unlike similar apps, it does not have to go to the server to function. You can read a card even if you're not connected to any server by any means. It's only real flaw is that it doesn't remember each scanned card for later recall.
