In order to validate TAGS, a tool for measuring acoustic glitches in solar-type stars, several sets of p-mode frequencies of solar-like stars observed with Kepler are used. We compare the results obtained with TAGS, in both modes of operation, with the results from Mazumdar et al. (2014) and Verma et al. (2014). Applications to other stars are also included in an attempt to expand the sample of solar-type stars with known precise constraints on acoustic glitches.
