Very useful

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.

Great app but....

Have to revise my last message here... Great app but the quality of images are very poor, comparing with other magnifying apps. Hope you can improve the quality of images soon. Very important for low vision people. Thanks.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback, WA1000!
The quality of the image is heavily dependent on the ambient light situation of the surrounding. If the quality isn’t sufficient enough, try to use the torch light which is the left red button. (Only available, if the device has an flash light, too)
