Please note: this only works correctly on newer IPhones 3GS

If you’re like us, you have many pairs of reading glasses. I always seem to misplace mine! Even with my glasses I couldn’t clearly read a label on a medicine bottle or the little numbers on a credit card. The zoom function on my camera sort of worked, but switching apps was clumsy.

This is simple. It uses the IPhone camera. Hold the phone sideways (landscape) over what you want to read. I mostly use 2x and 3x; we put in 4 levels of enlargement. Like all the magnifying apps it’s a little unsteady (well, it’s me a little unsteady holding the phone), but useable. IntelliCrop© software means even though the camera lens is in the corner of your phone, what you see looks centered.

Look thru your phone and use the X feature to help focus, then if you want you can touch the screen near the camera icon and it captures the image. Open the image and you can pinch, scroll and ‘study’ it.


-Actual size and 4 levels of magnification. Switch between them as needed.

-IntelliCrop© that ‘centers’ what you are looking at

-“Study” – image capture allow you to study the image without having to hold your phone steady

-Bold Icon – without your glasses on it’s easy to see the bright red ‘ladybug’ in the magnifying lens.

The best ideas are simple ones. I forget my glasses, but I always have my IPhone. We want to thank the software folks who made our solution really work. Next time you need to LookCloser, we hope this helps you too.

PS: we are working on the 'support issue'.. heck this was so simple we didn't know people needed support (?)

Best enlargements ever

Best enlargements ever. Still need your glasses to look at them. But I sure wish I could save the photos to the photo album.

Wow! What a great App! I've been using it more than I thought I would! I like the extra features that the other similar Apps just don't have. I especially like the Intellicrop feature. Buy it!

5/5 stars

Great app!

Easy to use and works great. Now I have a perfect replacement when I lose my glasses.
