This app is rated 5 by 1 users who are using this app. To know more about the company/developer, visit Magnetic Field, LLC website who developed it. io.magneticfield.readingglasses.apk apps can be downloaded and installed on Android 6.0 and higher Android devices.

With Reading Glasses you can now read that tiny text and see those small but important details you may have been missing.

Reading Glasses provides a variable zoom and a flashlight, so you increase the magnification to a level you feel comfortable with and add a little light to dark situations.

And it's free and free of ads. You get the whole screen to use as your lens. No annoying ads will get in your way.

Below you'll find a list of Features. There aren't many. Why should useless or nearly useless functionality distract you from what you really want to do?

- A zoom that autofocuses after magnifying
- A flash
- Saves your zoom setting between uses of the application

Use the slider to increase or decrease the magnification. Alternatively you can use pinch gestures, much like you would with a digital map or image. To add light, click the lightbulb button.

We hope you enjoy using the application! And if you enjoy using it, we hope you'll let others know! Happy viewing!


When you first open the application, you may see an alert box that says something like:

"Allow Reading Glasses to take pictures and record video? [DENY] [ALLOW]"

Reading Glasses doesn't take pictures or record video, so why are you being asked to grant it permissions to do so?

Because to view something the app needs to make use of the mobile phone's camera, as does any app that needs to view the outside world. And the makers of your mobile phone's operating system don't really know what the camera will be used for, so they have to assume it will be for taking pictures or video. That alert and its text are added automatically by the operating system.

To reiterate, this app will not take pictures or record video.

    Very nice basic magnifier. Works well on Samsung S7. Two simple controls for zoom and light. Would have given it a 5 if controls could be hidden or moved. But they are translucent and probably will get used to them. Thank you for no ads.

    Well as long as you are wearing your readers... Now if you need to read a menu and forgot your reading glasses this app is not helpful at all. I assume people looking for reading glasses might appreciate knowing that up front. This is a magnifying app. Rename and you're a 5 but as readers you don't pass muster.

    This app is a great example of perfectly executed simplicity. Very clean interface, with only zoom button and a flash button (no unnecessary junk). Only camera permission needed (no unrelated permissions). And no ads & no in-app purchases. Excellent app for focusing on doing only what it's intended to do.

  4. guest-avatar

    So far so good. More of a magnifier than medicated lenses which was what I assumed it was. But still a great app. Most importantly absolutely ADs free

  5. guest-avatar

    Works great, just a bit large and can't be moved from the internal memory to the sd card. Tried to email the address given, but its not valid. So, it works great and no ads. We just have to accept it using so much internal memory.

  6. guest-avatar

    Like a few others, I am amazed at the clarity with magnification! I'd like to know high magnification goes. Definitely more than 500 tmes. Can read newspaper size print at arm's length. Am legally blind and like the ease of use. Thank you!!!!

  7. guest-avatar

    Nice and handy app! For folks like me where near-sighted vision is becoming a problem, this app is very helpful, when the "cheaters" are not on hand! Excellent idea! Thank you!

  8. guest-avatar

    It works very well on my Motorola G5 Plus 4GB RAM. There's nothing better than a simple intuitive interface. Zoom works surprisingly well. I would add a single other feature: freeze frame. Thanks.

  9. guest-avatar

    This works perfectly! Especially now (Covid19) when I can't get to a eye doctor! Thank you so much!

  10. guest-avatar

    This really nifty tool gets the job done well. Simple, easy to navigate interface. No hassle, no confusions. Thank you

  11. guest-avatar

    Nice. Able to read minute print on medicine bottles without any problem. Good app. Suggest you have a button to capture image.

  12. guest-avatar

    WOW WOW WOW!! All I can say is this one special amazing app, and wait till you turn on the light and look at your pc keyboard! 🤣

  13. guest-avatar

    Great! I can see again! I am totally shocked at how much easier it is to see even the smallest detail. Thank you so much!🙋‍♀️

  14. guest-avatar

    "The application relies on the camera but hasn't been granted permission to use the camera." Installed, gave every conceivable permission in settings, uninstalled, re-installed... Nothing. Same msg. This app page says, "When you first open the application, you may see an alert box that says something like: "Allow Reading Glasses to take pictures and record video? [DENY] [ALLOW]" In multiple attempts to re-install, I never got this option, just the flat declaration with which I began this review... ALL my other apps needing the camera work fine... This app? Zero......... Tried their website: It's a logo. Period. --------Dev response is helpful. I'll have to stick by my review since I will never be able to test this.

  15. guest-avatar

    Awesome to use and I have used it for a few years now and I have used it for reading the fine print on my important perscriptions ! Found things in the reading that I didn't know before ! Awesome to use so thank you for development of this simple to use app ! God Bless you !

  16. guest-avatar

    Unreal........ my hat is off to whom ever made this app. Probably the best app I've ever downloaded. I dont need my reading glasses with this. Thank you very much.

    This app is absolutely amazing in what it does. I am visually impaired, which leaves me constantly struggling to read small text. This app has completely changed my whole perspective. Thank you for creating this and helping so many.

  18. guest-avatar

    Joanne Bostwick


    I am visually impaired and this is a great app, but the bar to scale the magnification needs to be lower on the screen. This would allow more text on the screen. Otherwise, I would have given 5 stars. keep up the good work. Thanks.

    christopher elliott


    Very intuitive magnifier and ambient light adjustment. Thanks !

  20. guest-avatar

    Good clear view spoilt by the light switch and zoom adjustment staying on screen. Could these not be moved to the edge of the screen, or better still, made to disappear after a short delay, and re-appear on touching the screen.

  21. guest-avatar

    When a programmer puts his heart and soul into writing a nap this outstanding and makes it free with no advertisements?you know darn well that this app is worth ten Stars even though Google only allows you to give five Stars. Just as easy as trying on Grandma's reading glasses and just as powerful.

  22. guest-avatar

    I clicked on the app a few minutes ago and was amazed at the clarity and ease of operation. I heartily recommend this most useful of apps to any one like me who has difficulty with small print. Many, many thanks to the developer.

  23. guest-avatar

    I love this app. If I forget my eyeglasses, I use this app. It's very easy, simple, ad free. I've tried other similar apps and I always go back to this app. I love this one!! Thank you!!

  24. guest-avatar

    A simple app but act like a savior to near sighted people like me. Thank you so much to the developer.

  25. guest-avatar

    Just the job I have no need to worry if I forget my glasses I will still be able to read a menu without asking someone to read it out to me thank you to the makers of this add free app

  26. guest-avatar

    Read at the distance u want. Similar to moving head closer or further to ur reading material. Not for long reads like a magazine but short articles, MENU'S for sure!

  27. guest-avatar

    Wont focus camera. No ads is cool but app isnt very useful

  28. guest-avatar

    Christopher Terpin


    Very simple and nice and only seems to use just the minimum necessary permissions. Thanks so much for making this app ad free.

  29. guest-avatar

    Just plain works... NO ads and NO strings attached. Finally, someone with a useful app that doesn't have their hand out.

  30. guest-avatar

    Sebastien Boutholeau


    Works well on my Google Pixel, I can see this being really useful for those with practically every form of weaker than average eyesight.

  34. guest-avatar

    This app is super for reading the smaller print on restaurant menus and wine lists when you've had a senior's moment and left your glasses in the car.

  35. guest-avatar

    This app is one of the best. No adds, no extra stupid features, very good quality. Definitely FIVE STARS. Thanks developer.

  36. guest-avatar

    It works good, but caught it using the camera alot secretly in the background when I wasn't using the app.. So it's deleted

  37. guest-avatar

    When I tried to open the ap after installing it, it said that I didn't give it permission to use my camera. No option available but to close it. What nonsense!

  38. guest-avatar

    Good, but I need one that allows you to keep screen on. I use for electronic soldering and it keeps turning the screen off

  39. guest-avatar

    Michael Pritchard

  44. guest-avatar
