Money talks, as the old saying goes, but with Chatterbucks it really does. Chatterbucks uses vision-based augmented reality technology from Obvious Engine to recognise normal banknotes and bring them to life! Just point your iPhone 4 or 3GS camera at the portrait on your bills and watch as they speak to you. You won't have tried this before on your iPhone!
Chatterbucks comes packed with tongue-in-cheek quotes, ironic witticisms and fun facts. You can even surprise your friends by entering your own personalised messages for your money to proclaim.
You can check out a video of it in action here: http://chatterbucksapp.com
At the moment, the following bills are recognised:
* US $5
* English £5 or £10
But we're working on adding more currencies too. If you'd like to see a particular currency please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or via twitter @chatterbucksapp.
How do I use it?
Just launch the app, select the currency you want to use, and point your camera at the portrait on the note. To see the next item swipe the screen.
Chatterbucks works well in most conditions, but for the best performance here are some tips
* Make sure there's plenty of light around.
* Try to use as flat a note as possible, and avoid creases and crumples around the portrait.
What's New in Version 1.1
** Feedback ** We hope you like Chatterbucks, we made it just for fun. Please leave us a good review if trying it out put a smile on your face. We want lots of people to enjoy it, and your positive feedback will ensure there are plenty of exciting updates to come in the future!
* US dollar support -- hear Abraham Lincoln talk to you from your $5 bill! Chatterbucks will remember your preferred currency, but you can always change between US Dollars and Pounds Sterling.
* Chatterbot text-to-speech engine!
Does as advertised
Clear instructions, as described and good app to show off augmented reality. Oh, and you bizarre haters out there, I'm not one of the developers, the fact that you think people who are impressed by an app that does exactly what it said it does are lying is actually giving feedback system on app store a bad name. A light disagreement with how entertaining to you personally an I app is does not justify 1 star. Come on guys. Help others make informed decisions!
No fraud as Cyrixblack implied.
Cyrixblack said this app can copy your bank notes serial numbers. Well he is an idiot as even if they did - what r they gonna do with it? Print money? If that was all it took to fake money I can get loads of numbers from any pile of notes and calculate a million serial numbers. What a silly thing to say without thinking and giving the app a bad review. As far as the app goes it gets 5 stars for unique idea but 2 stars for usefulness overall 3 stars.
Really cool and funky app. Can't wait to show it off. I'm sure it will get boring after a while though. Like that fact you can type your own message which the app will sound out. If done before hand you could really freak someone out!
