Guess How Much the TSA Spent on an iPad App That Randomly Points Left or Right

Video

The Transportation Safety Administration said Monday that it spent nearly $50,000 on an iPad application that randomly points left or right.

The iPad app, seen in action below, is used by TSA employees to randomly select individuals for extra screening in the Pre-check program, according to Fusion.

Developer Kevin Burke filed a Freedom of Information Act Request in December 2014 to determine how much the federal agency paid for the app.

He initially reported the cost at $336,000. However, the TSA said, according to Fusion, that particular figure represented additional apps in development.

The "randomizer" app, the agency said, only cost $47,400.
