EyeNote is a mobile device application to denominate Federal Reserve Notes (U.S. paper currency) as an aid for the blind or visually impaired to increase accessibility. Users can have the denomination of a note scanned and communicated back to the user.
Version 2.0 of EyeNote now includes a continuous scanning. Unlike the previous EyeNote version which needed a tap on screen to capture an image of the bank note and then denominate, version 2.0 utilizes continuous recognition with no need to hold the iPhone still or capture a photo. The scanning shall commence once the application has loaded and denominate the currency.
EyeNote version 2.0 works on the iPhone 3Gs, the iPhone 4 and 4S, the iPhone 5 and 5S, the 4th Generation iPod touch and greater, and iPad 2 and greater.
This application does not authenticate a note as either real or counterfeit. Please refer to the license agreement on the iTunes App Store.
What's New in Version 2.0
Now includes the ability to continuously scan
This app is quite helpful for a low vision or totally blind person. Thank you Apple and Department of treasury and engraving. Speaking as a visually impaired person I am truly amazed by the whirls that new technology have open for us!!
I read the reviews and downloaded the app. It works automatically when accessed. And keeps scanning to let you know what you have in front of you! Very nice! Free! I have the iPhone 5s, which can read my fingertips worth anything, but this? Totally cool!
I use to use this app a lot. I have macular degeneration... but since my phones upgrade I'm unable to use it. It says the app won't work with new ISO upgrade. 😞
