An illegal imitation of medicine is a serious issue. It involves with the health of human. Objective of proposed work is to design a mobile application system for checking status of medicine approval. This application is developed using android technology. Before the products (either traditional medicine or modern medicine) are being distributed in the market, they should be registered with Ministry of Health Authority in order to ensure the customers safety. The registration is useful to detect that the medicine is safe to be used. We can find the safety of medicine through website, bar- code scanner, and quick response (QR) code scanner. However, the proposed method is based on text-search or (OCR) on Android platform. Proposed system will expected to detect the status of pharmaceutical products means whether the medicines are fake or not by using search query. Besides showing the status of the medicine, it also includes some other information like products name, holder, manufacturer and the dangerous elements contain in the medicine. All these information is stored in the mobile database.
