Have you ever been in a grocery store, frustrated from not being able to read the nutritional information on a package? Or have struggled to read the menu in a dark restaurant, and then later can't figure out how much to pay because you can't read the bill?
It's easy to feel frustrated in situations when you forget to bring your glasses. Well, now with Glasses for the iPhone, you will always have your "Glasses" with you.
You can use the digital magnifier, with flashlight, to view anything from fine print to tiny objects up to 12x magnification. You can also use the front-facing camera as a "cosmetic mirror". Using just a single thumb you can seamlessly:
1. Double tap to quickly zoom in or out 6x.
2. Swipe sideways to continuously zoom in or out.
3. Shaky hands? Tap and hold to freeze the image.
4. Without lifting a finger, immediately start panning the image.
5. Zoom in and out of the image, either by double tapping or using the convenient slider.
Your most recent 8 images are automatically archived for you. Images can also be saved permanently to your camera roll. Glasses is one app you will always want to have with you!
This app has been updated by Apple to use the latest Apple signing certificate.
Fixes crashing bug for some iOS 10 users.
Ratings and Reviews
Very Useful, Every Day.
Anyone who is living life large in the middle, needs this app.
I’m 47 and just starting to need readers. This app saves me daily. I’ll have it until I’m not caring a phone anymore.
Absolutely incredible close-up detailed pictures when you’re at your leisure. If you’re a coin collector, wow I can’t believe you don’t have this app.
I’m not in the place financially to support right now but this is the first app that I am going to support. Very user-friendly when it comes to allocating shots. Only thing I recommend is that you get a small tripod or something to put the phone on. You'll be surprised.
One more thing if you’re going to mess around with this app. Hold the phone at a distance in a normal focus first. Then approach the item until you start to get out of focus. At this time you zoom in to the item. I’m telling you it’s incredible.
Thanks to the creator.
This one’s a keeper. Much appreciated
Love it, with two exceptions
First I have to say that the app finally stopped working today, after upgrading my phone to iOS 14.2.
I have used this app more and more in the last two years, as I get older and no longer have that 20/20 vision I had. It’s quick to launch, easy to zoom in and out. I’ve never quite understood how to get back to a live image after accidentally taking a snapshot.
I like that it uses the flashlight to light up what I’m looking at. My biggest improvement request - besides making it work with iOS 14.2, would be to allow the app to remain “active” as long as you want. After a minute or so - depending on your phone setting - the screen starts to dim, the allows the phone to lock. You have to keep touching the screen to keep it live, which is inconvenient for one hand use. This would be like having to tap the screen while watching Netflix, so your phone doesn’t lock while watching.
Glasses on my phone
I love the Glasses app on my phone. I look for my readers all day long and it is very frustrating because I cannot read anything with my glasses. Thanks to the wonderful app, I’m able to just pick up my phone, which is always nearby without having to search for my glasses. It’s so handy for reading directions on food labels, prices at the store and inspect my pets for any skin problems they may have. I love my new “Glasses”.
