See It is a handheld video magnifier that works by streaming a real time video feed to your iPhone or iPad's screen from your device's back-facing camera. You can zoom the feed in and out, and apply image filters to make things easier to see. Also, for devices that support it, you can turn on your device's flash light for extra illumination and a sharper image.

Designed by the visually impaired for the visually impaired, See It is the world's only portable CCTV video magnifier for your iPhone and iPad! Why pay hundreds or thousands of dollars for a handheld portable CCTV, when there's an app for that?

See It supports the following image filtering modes:
- Normal
- Inverted Normal
- Black and White (Grayscale)
- Inverted Black and White (Grayscale)
- Red Channel Only
- Inverted Red Channel Only
- Blue Channel Only

Ask for help

I'd like to ask you for Some help. I cant increase the magnification on the app. Can you please help me with this problem I'll be appreciated


Don't buy until this is fixed - buffering issue? not working

I loved this app after buying it in 2014. The $20 was worth every penny for the amount of help it was to me in my daily life tasks. I am legally blind so I used this for reading small print, overhead menus at fast food places, threading needles, you name it - whenever I needed to "see" something better.

I wrote to the company in April of 2015 because the slider bar (the ability to zoom) had dissapeared and they said it would be fixed in 2 weeks. It took quite a bit longer than 2 weeks to fix but I was really glad to have it back. In late July, it started shutting down intermittently and/or getting stuck in a rebuffering loop. It hasn't functioned since then and I'll be sending another note to Studio Bebop.

If it gets fixed, I'll revise my rating on the app and add an addendum to my review. I love the APP but I hate not being able to use it.


Hard to change manification slider.

The only problem with this app is that I can't always move the magnification slider with my finger. A stylus works better but it doesn't always work either. Otherwise this is a lifechanger. Was able to use it at an art museum to enjoy works that I wouldn't otherwise have been able to see (macular degeneration). Going to be using VisionAssist as well which has bigger controls. Using on iPad mini.
