16 November 2011: This application has had a major update, see the details in this post

app tileFollowing the same idea as my AA Rate WP7 app, another very popular spreadsheet I built is one that verifies South African ID Numbers so I also decided to build a Windows Phone 7 app to do that.

This does a little more than the spreadsheet could, so it has lots of info about what in an ID number does not verify which is very useful.

In addition it includes a awesome new feature a South African ID Number GENERATOR! With this you put in a few required details, hit a button and BOOM! An ID number that will validate.

Important to remember that validation of a number doesn’t mean it actually exists, just the math works. So please don’t use this for anything except interest or development!

Hi,How do I trace someone if I do have the I'd nr.does this software give address and contact details?

As it says in the post, it validates (i.e. checks the number passes the math) & generates ID numbers. If you want to trace someone and you have just a ID number start with the SAPS and/or home affairs. If you are looking for someone in regards to a legal matter, the sheriff of the court can help trace. Alternatively contact your lawyers and find out who they use for tracing people - rather expensive though.
