Agrigento, Italy – Gas Nervino Software today is proud to announce the release of Real Euro Detector 1.6, an update to the company’s popular counterfeited Euro banknotes identifier for iPhone, iPad, many Android devices including Amazon Kindle Fire. Using the Hi-Res Camera of your iPhone this app is able to recognize fake banknotes. Featuring 5 different identification pattern identifiers, with just a few clicks you can quickly identify counterfeited Euro banknotes.
“When somebody gives me 50 Euro or 100 Euro, I have often wondered if it was a fake,” explained Giorgio Sanfilippo, founder of Gas Nervino Software. “I mean, how would one know? Is it fake? Is it a counterfeit banknote? I didn’t know how to recognize real or fake cash. For me 50 Euro are a lot of money and losing them would be a really bad deal. Now I have a powerful tool to fight counterfeiting. RED can identify almost all counterfeit Euro banknotes.”
In 5 different ways, RED will guide you to properly identify a counterfeit Euro banknote. Using information and images from ECB – European Central Bank – Eurosystem website and the powerful features of our mobile phone, RED lets us recognize fake banknotes from 5 Euro to 500 Euro:
Take a photo of both sides of the suspect banknote and in overlay view, you can see if there are differences between the trusted model (from ECB website) and your banknote.
Selecting the value of your banknote, RED will show you where and how you have to touch your banknote. It indicates what is the tacile feedback your finger has to receive.
It’s the most powerful feature of the app. RED will show you a black screen, highlighting the correct watermark pattern.
You can put your banknote over the screen and move it until the transparency pattern matches with the watermark. If it doesn’t align properly, the banknote is a counterfeit.
Genuine banknotes have some coloured lines that, when magnified, show tiny alphanumerical characters and words.
RED allows you to identify the location of these lines and, using the Hi-Res Camera of your phone, take a photo of your banknote, zoom it and check if there are words or simple lines. If they are just lines, it’s a counterfeit banknote.
The last function of RED verifies if the serial number of your banknote is in the police database. Just type the serial number of your banknote to know if it’s in the Counterfeit Banknote Police Database.
