Ratings and Reviews


I'd buy that for a dollar

I have an ipod touch running the 7.1 ios. first thing you need to know if you are visually impaired is to Shut off the voice over feature on your I device. The Magnificent app demo features are not all turned on is the second thing to know. All that you can demo, is the magnifier and the light to illuminate what you are looking at. Which is not too shabby i must say, The magnifier gives you decent zoom capability using the pinch gesture (which as I said, only works with vo off) Once you turn vo back on the app activates the front back toggle button. Making the alternate method of zooming (tapping the screen) useless. So turn vo off and keep it off for the purposes of the demo. turning on the light is very good while the magnifier is on to help read stuff in dim environments. you can also double tap and hold the light button and a slide scale appears allowing you to adjust brightness. Very nice, feature. The split screen is also nice because you can see a portion magnified and unmagnified. that can come in handy sometimes. That's all I can say about this because it looks like you have to pay a token amount to see the contrast controls, the text read aloud feature and various contrast settings. I will review those as soon as I find 100 pennies. (grin)


Great Magnifier

Magnificent is now one of my favorite magnification apps for IOS. The performance of the image, especially when using alternate color modes is better than other similar apps I've tried. I'm especially curious to see if the performance increases with the extra camera control allowed in the upcoming IOS 8.


Great distance viewing, too!

Love this app. I highly recommend it. My client saw the grocery store aisle signs for the first time using this app. I like the stabilization and higher magnification levels from the in-app purchase. Thank you for making the base app free.
I don't expect excellent OCR for $2.99. ;)
Easier to find this app by searching for Mobilica.
