Another useful app for iPhone users.  While it might not be you that
uses an IPhone, it may apply to friends/relatives who have limited to no
when using cash.

We may not use cash as often as we once did, but there are still times
when it comes in handy or is necessary, and that can pose some problems
for the visually impaired. They now have one other possible solution
courtesy of LookTel, however, which has just released its new Money
Reader app for iOS devices. Using a "patented and proprietary object
recognition technology," it's able to recognize paper bills (from $1 to
$100) instantly, and simply speaks the value aloud. What's more
impressive, though, is that you don't need to hold the bill steady in
front of the camera, or even have the whole thing in the frame -- even
just thumbing through a stack will work. See for yourself in the video
after the break, and hit up the App Store to grab it now for $1.99.
