The long awaited Official Where's George? iOS App is here!
This new Where's George? App replaces the previous app you might already have. The old app has been obsolete and broken for some time now. It was created by a third-party developer who completely abandoned the project two years ago. I had to start from scratch and re-develop the entire app from the ground up. Because of that, I'm sorry, but upgrades of the old app are not allowed. Please contact me if you have any questions.
This new app provides many new features, like the ability to take a snap of a dollar bill, and the app will read the Serial Number via the "OCR" button when entering bills. Just take a photo of the bill with your phone, crop the serial number, and that's it! You can still enter the serial numbers with the spinner wheels or the keypad, whichever works for you.
This new app also allows you access the desktop version of the website with just one tap -- if you want to access YOUR BILLS, or your HIT ANALYSIS REPORT or any other feature not available in the app.
The Where's George? app allows you to easily:
-- Enter Where's George? Bills you find in the wild (registration NOT required)
-- Enter new bill you wish to track (registration required)
-- View all the bills you entered recently
-- View all your recent hits
-- Access the Desktop site with just one tap
Other website features are easily accessible from the "Launch Desktop Site" interface button.
I am now developing this app without any other intermediate or third-party programmers, so if you have any problems with the app or questions, PLEASE contact me first (you can send feedback right in the app), before leaving a bad review. I promise that if I can fix or change something for you to make the experience better, I will. And I'll post prompt updates to address any issues. Thank you.
Geolocation via GPS now working
Google Maps update
Lots of User Interface changes to make the app a lot easier to use. Better use of screen space.
Bill reports now include last 30 days of bills entered and hits.
Removed some useless title bars and buttons that were not needed.
If you have any problems with the new app, PLEASE contact me using the app "Send Feedback" button before leaving a bad review. I promise to respond and fix/resolve any problems you may encounter. Thank you.

Clunky UI/UX, but works perfectly
Regarding the negative reviews: The app works exactly as advertised. If people are finding it difficult to use, then they might consider getting a neighborhood teenager to show them how to use their iPhone.
Regarding the app: There’s no doubt that the app could use a UI/UX update, but for only a buck it’ perfectly serviceable.
And to the Developer: good job. Not great, but good. Grade: B+
I mean, I’m not gonna go after a refund or anything, cause clearly it’s in development and could end with something great. But as for now, the app is a user nightmare. I “registered” an account, the only info it asked for was email and first name. Bam. Account made... after enter ring my first bill, it said I was registered as “unknown” user. So I figured I’d log out and log back in to see if that fixed it. Nope. Can’t log back in because it wants a password that I was never promoted to create. Forgot password button doesn’t work, never got a confirmation email or anything from the app at all. Went to desktop site to try there, forgot password also doesn’t seem to work there. Imma stick around, cause I roundly remember tracking bills on the desktop website with my dad as a child, few hundred ones, even had our own where’s George stamp. I’d like to get back into it. But for now, without owning a desktop, and the desktop not being mobile friendly, and not being able to have an account to track my bills even...just can’t.
Quick and Easy!
UPDATE: April 2019 - I really like the new update! You have arranged the buttons so that they are really conveniently located, and I have been thinking that needed to be done but I couldn’t figure out how. Great job! Thank you.
I love the new app and the fact that I can easily enter bills on my iPhone or iPad. Very handy! The camera feature is great - I hate entering numbers on the tiny keyboard, and the spinners are too time-consuming - but I can snap a pic and (usually) it reads the serial number and Bing! I'm done! Nice that I can do it without getting on the laptop.
If you have any curiosity at all about where your money goes when it leaves your hand, try this - it's really fun! I have been Georging for over 12 years and have entered over $50k in bills - love it!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
