There are two things I can suggest for the Looktel MoneyReader. First, we need to make sure your Notes are supported in the Looktel Recognizer. Here is what they support. "are supported including the US Dollar, Euro, British Pound, Canadian Dollar, and Australian Dollar." Second, are you placing your Notes in front of the rear camera? I could be wrong but I don't think it uses the front camera nor is there an option to switch this. Please correct me if I'm wrong on this. HTH

I personally use an app called TweetList for my Twitter usage. When you Compose a new Tweet with this app you are provided with the HashTag button for you to use. TweetList Pro - Twitter Client http://www.applevis.com/ios-app-directory/social-networking/tweetlist-pro-twitter-client Otherwise, in the plain Twitter app just use the # along with the tag you want to use.

#3 Hi, thanks for your help, yup

Hi, thanks for your help, yup im using the back camera and im using the british pound. Regarding twitter, on a bluetooth keyboard, how would I enter a number sign? Thanks for your help :)

Shift the 3

#5 Lighting

Hi, the iPad does not have an LED torch on it, so it needs ideal lighting conditions to work. Make sure that the lights are on in the room you are in. You can also try laying the iPad camera flat on the bill on a table, then slowly pulling the iPad away in a vertical motion until you get recognition. This is a great method to learn orientation for LookTel Money Reader.
