Introducing the Cash Assist iOS app
The U.S. Currency Education Program’s Cash Assist app is now available for download in the Apple App Store. Like the Android version, the iOS version of Cash Assist is a training tool for professional cash handlers who need help authenticating Federal Reserve notes.
The app’s “Denomination Detector” uses a smartphone’s camera to identify the denomination of the bill you are authenticating. Capture an image of a banknote with either the front-facing or back-facing camera on a mobile device. Once the denomination has been detected, the app will display the key security features that are visible on genuine U.S. currency.
The app’s “Tilt Check Simulator” reveals how the security features of banknotes function when in motion. Select a denomination and tilt your phone back and forth to interact with a virtual banknote and observe its unique features from different angles. You can also quickly access text about a note using the app’s “Quick Pick” feature, which will present information about key security features for each denomination within the app and link to the Denominations page on uscurrency.gov for additional details.
