How visor works:
Visor uses the built in camera of your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Please keep a minimum of 5cm to the object you like to magnify. Otherwise, the camera can not focus the object.
Older iPads don't support the LED camera light.
This update adds bug fixes and smaller improvements. We also included a link to our companion product, the Visor Smartphone Stand.
Ratings and Reviews
I don’t have overall low vision, but this is extremely handy for things like electronics where contrast is low or print is very small.
For a friend that has poor vision it is an even more important tool for any sort of small print.
Well laid out and useful.
Best magnifier for iPad and iPhone more filters please red blue green yellow orange pink purple
Very clear, multi-level zoom
This app really helps me a fear deal to decipher what I'm looking at. I don't usually use it for lengthy reading (like a book), but to figure out what an item is by zooming in on it with the light on or to read small text on handheld items. It's very clear, easy to use and I really love it.
