1600 is a new way for kids and playful Americans of all ages to learn about what happens at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
All you need to do is tap “Start” and point your camera at George Washington (on the one dollar bill).
Built through a collaboration with the White House Historical Association and Nexus Studios, the app’s aim is to educate and inspire the youngest Americans to learn more about the White House’s role in our democracy.
Our hope is that whether it is experienced on a teacher’s desk or dining room table, kids walk away from “1600” with a better sense of the institution and its purpose. Not to mention, a smile.
Tip: Move your phone around to explore from different angles, and touch the Oval Office to reveal a surprise.

Great idea, needs more options. I had to Google an image of a $1 bill on my tablet. It’s a great idea, but it left allot to be desired. I wanted to see more of the White House, or tap on parts of the house & get a little info. I really hope this is developed more, & more. I don’t like having to continuously point my cam at the $1 bill. Great start though… When exiting, try swiping up from the bottom, it should bring up your home button
he screen is very sensitive and bonks when you move too much to explore. Goes back to the beginning when you re-engage, frustrating. I don’t see children having the patience to stay interested with this level of sensitivity and limited functionality. Keep on upgrading, love the concept!
This app is very cool and educational and graphic effect and animation are also cool. Although should be more options to watch video and story without continually holding camera on dollar bill. Also has delay and glitches.
Very cool! Works perfect & hope it gets expanded Works very well and no issues at all even when holding phone up over 3′ from the bill. None of the other issues from the other reviews was able to move around the bill and raise & lower phone without any problems!
Very Clever! I think it’s ridiculous that a reviewer gave this unique app only 3 stars, stating, “kids will like it more”. Well, duh! But just because it’s geared more towards one demographic than others doesn’t mean the app is any less brilliant, and besides, I’m almost 50 years old, and I got a kick out of it!
