    First of all I have a tablet so I wrote an email saying the app didn't work. Then found out my tablet has no light. It was sugested it light my screan for light and I like it. The magnified image is another story. It helps me a great deal with things too small to see detail. The focus is awesome. This was a system I knew well from all the times I took pictures and looked at those to read what had been too small to see. This actually is the same thing only it shows me everything in real time.

    Great light but when I pick the phone up, when lit, it is BLINDING. Any way to reduce this? Aside from constant turning it off and on in the dark, which requires stopping and attending to it, it is a great little item. Could a programmer link software with position of the phone so if you pick up phone with light facing up it dims or shuts off, until you turn the phone around away from your face.No matter how hard I try to avoid this, those LEDS get me badly every time. Good luck!

  3. Anthony Johnston-avatar

    Anthony Johnston


    I like the app. It does what I need it to and pretty well. Sometimes when I first start it up it doesn't focus according to my settings and I'll have to go in and click on the focus I have it set on and it works fine then other times it'll work just fine. Could be the app or my phone. Either way it's still a pretty good app.

  4. Debby Hager-avatar

    Useful, it took me awhile to figuire out the options and use them though. Some quick instructions for each option and examples of what the option is capable of would of been be nice and less time consuming for the user. Thats why I gave you 4 stars instead of 5 stars.

  5. Heinrich Engel-avatar

    Generally don't comment on apps regardless of how useful they are. However, since taking up electronics as a hobby I've really, really found this useful. Paired with a screen mirroring app and stand it makes delicate soldering a breeze. Top stuff.

    Wonderful for reading maps on the road. I'm the 'navigator' in our RV, and this has saved wrong turns! Crisp, clear, and I can take a picture of a map section for easy viewing. The easy on/off light switch is helpful in dark conditions.

  7. Kim Sanford-avatar

    Everything I use this app I get a phone call from a cell phone diff# each time with a message in a FOREIGN LANGUAGE? I do not know what it says? I saved message and blocked #. It never happens unless I have used your app!! Never!

  8. Lori Poulton-avatar

    Love it. One glitch seems to be that it freezes at least once during each time i open it. Its a small hassle. This means i need to reboot the app in order to get it to focus again. Other than that works great and magnifies nicely.

  9. TJ-avatar

    I can see the words clearly! It lights the text and magnifies it so large I had to reduce the scale. That has never happened with a magnifier for me previously. I always tried to makes things larger by holding it closer, further back, or whatever worked. This app is the most simple yet amazing magnifier I've ever used! A free app that does a superb job, wow! Thank you for helping people be able to see better. Thank you!

  10. fv merl-avatar

    Great app for letting me get close-ups of bolts, threads, information plates and other stuff while working on my boat. Only negative is it takes a minute to load. Not a big deal but when I'm hot, sweaty and is.

  11. Daniel Hooven-avatar

    Works as advertised. I use it with and without the light on. I haven't found a use for the other buttons at bottom of the app. I haven't used other magnifier app so I can't compare. I will keep it on my phone as a handy app.

  12. Wesley Miller-avatar

    It is a huge difference in the way the fine print is easier to read !Wish i would have found it earlier!!!! Absolutely fantastic and easy to use!!!

  13. Rebecca Bland-avatar

    I am thoroughly enjoying my new toy, as my fiance and I are sorting through our collection of jewelry, finding the" real " gold and silver from the costume jewelry is not an easy task without a magnifier with a light... thank you very much☺

  14. Colin Richards-avatar

    Works well and very useful for small print which can zoom in and out , with torch feature if required, fabulous app, 5 star.

  15. Frank Andrade-avatar

    I love this app! I use it to look where i cant see like on a very high top shelf or in the car when I'm working on it and I drop a tool, behind the bed. And if it's dark, i can quickly turn on the light! My parents also use it to better read letters and small print! They use they're phone instead of looking for their glasses, unless they fond they're glasses first, lol! A nice addition, would be to be to able to connect (i.e bluetooth) to another phone and watch there.

    I'm in an EKG class...even using readers I can't read the very small boxes. I remember a friend telling me several months ago about an app that magnifies...VOILA!!! GENIOUS!!!! It took literally 3 seconds to install and the results were magic! Our teacher was going to us one by one to see our progress. When she got to me she was amazed and said she was going to download it too. Thank you for your addition to my studies😊

    On my Note 9 the magnification focus is automatic. The flashlight is brighter than the app provided by Samsung. I am not easily impressed, but I am impressed.

  18. Ashley Smith-avatar

    I like this app... easy to use.. I'm a coin collector and use it a lot for looking at coins date and any possible error. Sometimes I find it hard to get it at right settings to see the dates clearly. Which has been common with these apps from my experience.. this one is better than most. Keep up the gd work

  19. Daniel Salinas-avatar

    I'm satisfied with the magnification, it really works well, but I can't use the light part of the app. But I'm happy with it.

  20. Denise Griffin-avatar

    Performed well on test that I had lined up. easy to use controls. Highly detailed photos. Camera works very well. I will be able to use this in many Pursuits. The ads ran down one side or down the bottom, they did not interrupt my viewing field at all.

  21. Kevin Keller-avatar

    Can't find your glasses? This app makes it so you could read 3 or 4 feet away! Also a quick access flashlight. Reading fine print is super easy. I love this app!!!

  22. Naomi Hansche-avatar

    I like this app, it does what it says. HOWEVER, I'm trying to access the pro version- to get rid of the ads- but NO PRO APP is coming up/available. Can you please advise on this…

  23. Rick Sievers-avatar

    Works great! Really helpful with my old eyes to see things better. Many uses in the near future with this app.

  24. Rajesh Keni-avatar

    Very useful...I use for reading names on electronic's very useful...thanks to the developer...add features like multiple shots and timer system.

  25. Scott Shred-avatar

    This camera app does exactly as it says it does incredibly clear simple-to-use straightforward no gimmicks and easy-to-use with intuitive nature. .My camera has 48 megapixel lens capability and this uses them better than the app that came on the phone. I would highly recommend this app to all users...

  26. Sandra Farnum-avatar

    Great! This is not as good as the one I used to have but can't find again. But a good enough substitute. I don't have the same control over the quality of focus as I had before...

  27. Richard Leventhal-avatar

    Richard Leventhal


    Very simple to use, easy to understand options. Replaced another app that was hard to focus. So much better!

  28. A Stuart Kaplan-avatar

    A Stuart Kaplan


    Very helpful when a critical need for magnification and picture taking arises. I highly recommend this app.

  29. Daniel Bintz-avatar

    Works great with or without the light, but doesn't work only with the light. Which I would like to see.

  30. Bobbi Polzin-avatar

    SO convenient to just hit 1 icon and you have a perfect magnifier! AND you won't misplace it, you won't have to be fumbling on trying to get your readers on and better yet, you don't have to walk around with glasses around your neck! Great App!! Highly recommend!!

  31. Noemi Reyes-avatar

    I love this app! I'm visually impaired and have reading glasses, but sometimes I still have a hard time reading. The zoom helps me see the smallest letters and the flashlight helps me read in dim lighting. I've tried similar apps before but this is the best.

  32. Reba McFee-avatar

    This app makes so many tasks so much easier! I can read things like battery sizes on button batteries and needle sizes on sewing machine needles.

  33. Archie Hubbard-avatar

    Great app, especially for the last of the baby boomers as we lose our sight/ability to read fine print.

  34. Malcolm Buc-avatar

    1. Could not get icon on home screen. 2. Focus refused to remain steady. 3. Unable to find photo after snapping.

  35. Adam Winter-avatar

    Its extreamly useful to me because i had my eye shot with a staple while building pallets back in 2007. I can see, but this app really helps me!

  36. Janet Duncan-avatar

    Very good experience so far. I can zoom and record and take pictures. The flashlight is bright and I can see everything clearly.

  37. trish harrison-avatar

    I hadn't used before. Its excellent, especially for reading the tiny print of ingredients on medicine & other bottles.

  38. Rebecca Boyd-avatar

    I am looking at coins using this app and I think it is great. The zoom and focus ability makes it easy to check out all aspects of my coins and I am confident I'm not missing anything. Has lots of features, all are easy to use. It's a great app!!

  39. Ernest Sobies-avatar

    Very good app. Under inspection when need read dirty or very small numbers was very helpful. Thank you.

  40. Larry Johns-avatar

    This really helps to read small print , such as prescriptions and any other fine print . I found it extremely useful in removing splinters . I have poor vision , and this is a really big HELP . . I really like this APP !!! 😀 One of my FAVORITE ..

  41. Diane Burke-avatar

    I can't say enough about this. It comes in good hand to see things much better. That's so much. I highly recommend this to everyone!!

  42. Martín D-avatar

    Does exactly what offers. Squeezes the most of my cellphome's little cam and has enough options to make it work. The "focus" button works LIKE A CHARM. I suggest trying one of those tiny clip on macro lenses for an amazing zoom in.

  43. Judie Crume-avatar

    I have macular degeneration and the magnifier is a life saver! I can easily read my Bible and other printed material. I always have it with me so very convenient and handy. 5 stars for sure!

  44. Kelly Bird-avatar

    Great app! Focus and zoom features are great. Pictures come out clear and detailed. Highly recommend

  45. itchy balls-avatar

    Tried this app against my own camera for differences thinking what a load of rubbish.. BUT this app wins hands down..It zooms in more than what your camera app will that comes with your phone. So does it work.. dam right it does!!! Note 10Plus.

  46. Robert Scuzzarella-avatar

    Robert Scuzzarella


    Love this app. The older I get, it's hard to see really small print. Just open this app and point to what I'm looking at and I can adjust the word sizes as I need to.

  47. Руслан Хохлов-avatar

    Руслан Хохлов


    I like it application. The photos get very good. I am glad to have it in his electronic device.

  48. Susan Savage-avatar

    Can't read the tiny print anymore. I especially like the ability to adjust the settings easily.

  49. Juan Pablo Villa-avatar

    Juan Pablo Villa


    Very useful and easy to use, no problem with the adds, totally recommend it.

  50. Whitney Rhodes-avatar

    Best magnifier app I've used yet. It zooms in far better then 3-5 other apps I've used. The only app I've found that comes close, definitely does not have nearly as great of lighting, color, and brightness that shows on my screen with this app! Very few ads too.

  51. Rod Waldrop-avatar

    This app works great! I am near sighted with a minimal prescription so i don't wear glasses for it. This app works great for it is & better than others I've tried. The adds are not obtrusive. 👍👍👍

  52. Paul Anthony-avatar

    Very useful to magnify things that I can barely see with my eye. Still haven't got the hang of autofocusing though.

  53. Richard Berry-avatar

    Very cool. Focus is pretty quick. Has all the functionality I would like. Can freeze and image which is nice. Inverting the image is also interesting...

  54. Edna Chu-avatar

    I read the great review. It led me to install it also and try. I am testing it right now and so far, so good. Keep up improving the app to get and maintain as the best out there.

  55. Stephen Carter-avatar

    This just does what it does. Light and magnification! Bravo! Thank you!

  56. Dwane Fresh-avatar

    This is a fantasic app! Now when i am out and about I can check my pocket change on the spot and not waite till I get home. It is a lot stronger than I ever excepted.

  57. Christine Frazier-avatar

    Christine Frazier


    Cooler (easier) than the last magnifier I rated. Both have great images. This one has the functions more apparant.

  58. Jerry Berry-avatar

    Great magnifier even better than a glass optic magnifier like Grandma had . Very minimal ads.

  59. Danny Hale-avatar

    It does magnify what I'm looking at. However, it won't focus. The image is always so blurry that it's actually worse than just using your eyes. I'm really disappointed with this app. The app description claims that the last update fixed the blurry image issue. If this is "fixed", how bad was it before the update?

  60. Frank Petrucci-avatar

    Very easy to use and delivers the magnification with excellent zoom and light.

  61. Dorothy Barrows-avatar

    Dorothy Barrows


    Awesome!! Percise, clearly focused..excellent brightness. Thank you!

  62. Sheila Drew-avatar

    It really works. I can see the fibers clearly on my shirt! So I can wait to play with this when I have more time. Good job !!!

  63. Jenalee Lewis-avatar

    This is the best free magnifier app i have tried so far. I like how well the focus works well, and how clear the picture is! Very pleased!!!

  64. EmmKaa-avatar

    This is an excellent app. The magnification is incredible, so clean and clear. I have a couple magnifiers - one hand-held and the other attached to a pair of glasses, both of which are supposed to be of watch repair calibur - that don't do near the job that this free app does. Plus this app will take a good quality photo of the item you're magnifying AND provide a flashlight to help you light your subject or get around in the dark. A good deal in my book... Highly recommend.

  65. Jeri Land-avatar

    Use instead of camera for close ups. Pics saved to your gallery. Also great for reading tiny print. I use this app more & more often.

  66. Kyle Bradley-avatar

    Very clean, clear picture. Good controls. I've downloaded and used mulmultiple magnification apps and this one is among the best.

  67. Jani Saksa-avatar

    This magnifier app seemed perfect, but then the ads became way too intrusive. I don't mind for the small ad space in the bottom/side, but when a small simple app starts to throw full screen ad's at my face, I'm leaving. And not only did you show it when quitting the program, but you had the nerve to show me one in the middle of testing different focus modes (which, be, would be nice if there was a simple description of each, and differences between them). Too bad this was otherwise exactly what I

  68. K A-avatar

    For the stellar price of free this app is far better performing than I expected. The only issue that I observed is the auto focus. I felt that it ran in spurts.

  69. Jason Noriega-avatar

    Controls are out of the way, easy to use. The best one so far. I recommend this one over others.

  70. Midori Mannix-avatar

    The app itself is flawless, would have given 5 stars fot an ad-free version!

  71. Glen C-avatar

    Download, use, no ads. Works perfectly. My permanent magnifier.

  72. David Dominguez-avatar

    David Dominguez


    It does what it says and being able to use the light is nice.

  73. Kenneth Gray-avatar

    Tried a lot of "Magnifying Apps" over the years, but honestly must admit, this app is one of the better ones! As of yet, works great!

  74. Cynthia Moynihan-avatar

    Cynthia Moynihan


    Great app, kind of need a steady hand to make sure the pictures are blurry but if you have that it works perfect. Thank you

  75. Dave Wills-avatar

    I've had a good experience using this magnifier and flashlight. it took me a little while to get used to how much magnification I needed for any particular viewing based on ambient light and such. there's a timer building that turns the light off after a set period, which is a good, battery saving feature.

  76. Adrianne Baugh-avatar

    Works as it should. Ads are easy to ignore

  77. Casey Cabuco-avatar

    Simple and works. Some issues focusing though (Samsung A70)

  78. Chris Hall-avatar

    I use this app to view text in places where my head can't fit. Such as in equipment racks, cable labels and in tight spaces.

  79. Arvind Raghavan-avatar

    Arvind Raghavan


    The name says it all. Simple, easy to use Very iseful.

  80. Ed Richardson-avatar

    It works easier than the magnifier built into most smart phones. It helps me to out quite a bit in reading the tiny print on very small electrical parts.

  81. Jesse Deimel-avatar

    It's an excellent app but no app is totally perfect but I would still recommend it to anyone who prefers magnifier a flashlight when they're in need.

  82. Charlie Masterson-avatar

    Charlie Masterson


    This magnifying app has the greatest magnifying power of any app that I have tried. There's supposed to be an ad-free version but I haven't been able to find it in the App Store.

  83. James Richard Taylor-avatar

    James Richard Taylor


    The best clear picture I've seen in a long time for a magnifying glass. It does all it says it can do and more. You're going to need this app too. I highly recommend it.

  84. Quentin-avatar

    Only a 4 star because I really can't zoom in on real small things and make them clear.

  85. Susan Carpenter-avatar

    Susan Carpenter


    Great magnifying and has a built in light. Very handy and works great.

    I am 68 year old Male with diminishing eyesight due to cataracts. Magnifier + provides me with another resource in the continuing battle of reading smaller and smaller text on bottles, packaging, etc. I use the software on my Samsung SG8 Active and it works well with my rear facing camera. It is a great free product and the ads are not Overwhelming. 5 stars!

  87. kishanabear-avatar

    This app has been very helpful medically! A million other ways as well! I've even used this to read tiny print... a must have!

  88. art mckay-avatar

    Very handy! No one carries a magnifier but everyone has a cellphone. When you need it, it's there :)

  89. Kimberly Morris-avatar

    I love this app, it's Great for looking at stones and coins and taking pictures Close up. Highly recommend it to rock enthusiasts and coin collected.

    This is awesome! Way better than my phones camera magnifier! I will definately recommend this to all my friends!

  91. Michael Santos-avatar

    Love love this app! I'm getting older all of a sudden LOL and this magnifier app saves the day!!

  92. Truk Retlaw-avatar

    Takes a while get proper focus, but good app.

  93. Kiran K. Subba-avatar

    Veey good Magnifier & Flashlight apps as it does its work. Thank you.

  94. Md Samsher Alam-avatar

    Md Samsher Alam


    I have been using this app for more than a year and its really amazing for all the magnifying apps go in the market. The only thing they can improve is to give option which back camera we want to use as there are now multiple vameras available in a smart phone. It'd bemore efficient and the pic would be even sharper if we can toggle between cameras..

  95. Joe Kaikkonen-avatar

    Small, straight forward, fast loading and only keeps rate until tiny banner obstructs view, or starts failing to load camera view in under 5 seconds😀

  96. Taz D.-avatar

    Takes up to a few secs for the image to focus properly but so far it is the best magnifier for android phones. Thanks!

  97. MirazMusik-avatar

    Excellent app. Magnifies and photographs. Very helpful. Specially since my eyes had to resort to glasses.

  98. King Daddy-avatar

    Simplicity. Thats it. I love simplicity and this app is simple to navigate and easy to use.

  99. Jane Tuer-avatar

    Very helpful when you're trying to treat ingredients or directions on food or medications

    Very useful app, a great aid for soldering on small circuit boards etc
