Does what it says it will do. Even recognized a rather old $10 bill (that has the four cars on back). Should be useful for my wife, who is blind. BUT!

Appears only able to say-out-loud the monetary denominations that it sees. Also, in addition to the say-out-loud annunciator, the amount is also printed in very large, yellow print on the screen. In public, this would be a rather serious privacy and security issue.

Possible mitigation: Use of headphones and hiding the screen.

Preferred mitigation: Silent feedback to the user, such as vibrations, and the ability to disable either or both audio and visual feedback.

Therefore, my first impression of the software is a 3 of 5 rating.

Also, answering another reviewer who said that the software does not recognize counterfeit bills, please note that the write-up for this app contains as a disclaimer that it does not recognize counterfeit bills as counterfeit. So, I cannot hold this against them.

Won’t work in dark room no light

Why would you not have the light turn on in a dark room to read currency? Blind people don’t have the lights on usually! You need the app to access the light on the smart phone in a dark room where there’s no light it is worthless does not work at all
