Money Viewer for iPhone

It's a pity this App works only with US dollar bills (it would be nice if it could recognize Euro and GB currency) but for many thousands of blind or vision-impaired users, that will be more than enough.

This Money Reader by LookTel allows you to simply point your iPhone camera to a dollar bill and immediately hear what bill it is.
It's such a simple task most people won't even realize just how useful it will be for everyone not being able to see as well as we do.

You can expect the App to reach the Android platform soon - and besides the extra foreign currency bill detection, I also suggest adding coin recognition. :)
