Colour Overlay is an app that has been designed to help people who experience difficulty reading text or viewing images.

It offers an Image Viewer, a Camera Viewer (for devices that have an inbuilt camera) and a Web Browser with the ability to overlay colour transparencies over them.

Choose your colour from 10 of the most commonly used overlay colours, or use sliders to find the exact colour that helps you the most.
You can set the transparency of the overlay too, allowing you to fine tune the overlay to your needs.

Have purchased this to try and help with visual stress of reading. (Irlens) Can't get the app browser to even work and no way of applying the colour to anything else on phone. Wouldn't recommend anyone else purchasing this. At moment a waste of money.

Useful App

This is a brilliant app and enables me to add an overlay for web browsing. It still as a couple of deficiencies though, it has no way of bookmarking pages, and there is no way to access browsing history. The biggest drawback though is that is does not allow pop-ups, so logging in to my universities web site is impossible - shame this app would have been perfect for what I need otherwise.

Use with other apps

This is good but it would be better if I could use it in pages or as a general overlay on the iPad
