About this app

With the “FDA Age Calculator,” retailers can use their personal smartphones to help determine if the purchaser is old enough under federal law to buy tobacco products. Using the camera feature on a smartphone, the app is able to scan the driver’s license of the purchaser to determine if the customer is at least 21 years of age (the federal minimum age to buy a tobacco product). The birthdate listed on the photo id can also be manually entered into the app by the retailer for a quick age calculation. This application is only intended to assist retailers in calculating the age of the purchaser. This application does not check or verify whether an ID is real or authentic. Retailers are responsible for ensuring that they do not sell tobacco products to individuals under 21 years of age. This application does not transmit or share this information or save the information on the user’s device or a third party or government server.

If it worked all of the time it would be a great tool. Unfortunately getting the app to actually scan an ID is an almost complete failure. Nine out of ten times it just won't scan the ID. All scanned ID's have been FL drivers license so far. Its just faster to locate the persons DOB on their ID and read it than to wait and see if the app is going to scan or just sit there.

I have a Moto E7 Android phone and the app does not work. By default the age is set to 18 instead of 21 so it has not been updated since the new federal laws. Also if you attempt to manually enter a birth date the app will not save it and instead spit out that the person is 0 years old.

It does not detect fake I d's it says there old enough and it's not right cause you can tell the color of the Green and blue symbol it's a different color than a real ID.
