Magnifyer™ turns your 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 in closer to an object, and decreases magnification as you pull away. It’s that simple!

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

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

Use Magnifyer™ as the zoom function for your camera. All photographs taken with Magnifyer™ go directly into your 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're back at your computer.

Features include zoom from 2x to 14x; max. 5x on older than iPhone 3GS. Finger swipe control of magnification always available. Magnification/reduction activity plays an audible whistle to let you know when magnification changes. Sounds are optional.

Auto-magnify feature lets you change magnification using the accelerometer. Up/down, in/out movements change magnification settings just like a real magnifying glass. Freeze on Capture lets you study the picture you just took. Built-in camera zoom and camera shutter.

Suggested uses:

Having a magnifying glass at your disposal for the occasional
situation where extra ‘seeing’ 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: take portraits from across the room!

HOW TO USE MAGNIFYER™: To use Magnifyer™ launch the app. and view the subject matter at a distance of about 6 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 any closer will result 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 just 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 changes the magnification.
