An excellent aid for visual disability

I am legally blind with no vision in my right eye. This tool enables me to do things like following instructions for building models with LEGO. Turning on the light significantly helps bring out the colors. Only trouble is, after a while, my phone heats up enough to start reducing my display’s brightness to as low as 50%. I have an XS Max. Its OLED display could hardly produce a better picture, if only it would remain as bright as I want it, even while using a demanding application, such as this one.

Photo feature made for zooming in further (not for taking pics)

I’ve been legally blind all my life (blue cone achromatopsia) and the last few years I’ve had fairly large progressive vision loss. Thankfully I’ve had this app all those years on iPad and iPhone and it helps significantly. The filters let me change things so that I can see many things I’d miss. The negative reviews don’t seem to understand what the picture function is for - it’s so that you zoom into the picture even further. I love this feature as I have very little vision; I generally take the pic on my iPad after zoom far as can go then zoom in further. If they saved to the camera I’d have no storage because it would be filled with pics I needed 1 time to see something.

Filters don’t work

When you take a picture, it doesn’t save the filter to the picture, so what’s the point of the picture? And, I made it so that it shows both cameras, but when I go and turn the filter off, it gives it this reddish orangish tone to it, but down at the bottom where it give you the preview for what the filters look like, it’s fine, and it does this for both cameras. The invert filter is too high in brightness because it’s not very dark or light in my room, but it makes it so that its just an off-white so I can’t see anything. I tried restarting my iPad for this problem but it doesn’t do anything. Make an update for this so that it doesn’t do this anymore. It’s really annoying.
