iPhone Screenshots


Magnifyer turns the iPhone into a powerful magnifying lens by adding a zoom function to the camera. Images are magnified up to 14x on iPhone 3GS and 5x on older phones. Magnifyer works like an ordinary magnifying glass. Magnifyer increases magnification as you move the iPhone closer to an object and decreases magnification as you move further away. It is that simple!

Forgot your reading glasses? Magnifyer is just the thing for reading small type on prescription bottles, a telephone book listing or an ingredient list.

Need to read the small print on the menu? Magnifyer, on your iPhone, is ready to go.

Use Magnifyer as the zoom function for your camera. All photographs taken with Magnifyer go directly into the camera roll at their current magnification. What you see is what you get. The Freeze on Capture feature lets you study an image at great magnification.

Audible feedback lets you know when you are increasing or decreasing magnification.

There are two separate ways to magnify an image: by swiping the screen with your finger and by moving the iPhone closer or further away from the image. We call that Auto-Magnify.

Zoom the iPhone camera to crop a picture without having to wait until you are at your computer.

Features include zoom from 2x to 14x on iPhone 3GS; max. 5x on older iPhones. Finger swipe control of magnification is always available. Magnification and reduction activity sounds (optional) an audible whistle to let you hear what is happening.

Auto-magnify feature lets you change magnification using Up/Down, In/Out movements the same way you would use a real magnifying glass. Freeze on Capture lets you study the camera image. Magnifyer also has a built-in camera zoom and camera shutter.

Suggested uses:

Having a magnifying glass at your disposal for the occasional

moments when extra viewing power is needed.

Magnifyer is great for:

-- reading labels while shopping

-- reading the fine print on medicine bottles

-- reading telephone book listings

-- studying maps

-- reading receipts

Magnifyer adds a powerful zoom to your iPhone camera: it isn't just for small objects. Shoot a portrait from across the room!

HOW TO USE MAGNIFYER: To use Magnifyer launch the app and view the subject matter at a distance of about six inches (15 cm). There is a natural tendency to move closer but you will soon discover that the zoom can become so extreme that being closer results in a blurry, unsatisfactory image.

Holding the iPhone 3GS at 6" (15 cm) from an object swipe the screen upward (away from you) to enlarge the image. Go slowly; one long swipe is capable of taking you from 1x magnification to 14x magnification! Usually, for reading fine print only a little magnification is all that is necessary.

You may also move the iPhone gently toward or away from the object to affect magnification. As though you were slowly pumping a hand pump, or, tugging on a baited hook, moving your iPhone will change the magnification.
