Have trouble reading small text on your screen? Want to get a better look at small pictures (like the thumbnails here in the app store)? Look no further!
A magnifying glass for your screen, Zoom has all the essential functionality you'd expect for that sort of tool. But Zoom has one incredible, truly unique feature you've never seen anywhere: its innovative zoom effect ensures that 100% of the screen is visible at all times.
Think about it: a perfectly zoomed center, yet your entire desktop is visible... how? The answer lies in Zoom's custom, hypnotically beautiful magnification mechanism visible in the screenshots below.
★ Never use complicated gestures and key combos to zoom IN and OUT of your entire screen (over and over again).
★ Never have that disorienting feeling when you're zoomed in on one part of the screen that you can't tell what's going on in another part.
★ "Work through" Zoom - Continue clicking, typing, and so on, right through the window, allowing you to work even while Zoom is in front.
★ Use either the keyboard OR the mouse to bring up and dismiss Zoom (for both power users and point-and-click people)
✔ Zoom in/out
✔ Resize the window
✔ Global hotkey: "control-Z" (Z for Zoom)
✔ Copy what you see
✔ Optional Menubar icon (Dockless mode)
Thanks and enjoy!

Compatibility, memory, and efficiency optimizations.
Not a great app
Sounds like a good idea but not well implemented in several ways. First, no intuitive way to get help. On first use it took me awile to figure out how to turn it off. It will be very bad for my wife to use.
The side distortion around the zoomed area is confusing and probably the reason the zoomed area is slow and jerky to move. I'd like a version that is simple and smooth to use. I'd also like to be able to control the area of focus and the zoom amount.
And what's with that little gear in the middle of zoomed area. It just distracts and doesn't seem to do anything, when you can catch it.
Sorry I installed it.
Very awkward app. Needs inprovment.
I like it....
But I've not yet been able to get it to bring up preferences when I click the gear icon. Movement of the zoom box seems a little slow and jerky too, but I'm hoping for improvements in time. Thanks for a nice app with a good idea!
