Been using this handy little app for years on seven different phones, three tablets and have recommended it to at least forty people but never again. The latest upgrade has RUINED IT! The continuous auto focus mode makes it nigh on impossible to getva clear image of what you want to see and the new 'freeze frame' feature has too much of a lag so moving your finger to freeze the image results in either a blurred image or the wrong image. Neither of which is what you want. So, your reign has come to an end and I have opted for another app which is, ironically, more like the previous version of you ...
Amazing once you get use to it... you can see your pores like you never seen them before..wish I could record so that you could see your face and other things that you can't look at through the screen at the same time and wish you could focus even if shaking hands
Newest update causes my camera to not be able to be used at all on zte n800 awe phone with android 4.2 (I think) after I have tried the Magnify app. After I restart my phone, I get my camera back, but the Magnify app shouldn't do this. I used to love the app and was able to take magnified pics with the older version. Very disappointed. You broke it!
3/5/17 Edit: Disappointed, since the loss of manual focus has reduced usefulness and increased nothing but annoyance. It's not helpful, when trying to view something, for focus to keep changing, to focus on an adjoining object, etc. One-tap to focus, then move out and in till perfect, *was* this app's strong point. I'd referred several customers to this app in the past; but no longer, as I'm having to review competing solutions myself. ...Was 5-stars... ----- I use this all day to enlarge product info for myself & customers. Just found the paid version, which I didn't realize existed!
This app magnifies normal size print fairly well on on my Moto G Lollipop phone. Tiny print tends to become jumbled and unreadable. It is important to hold your device still; otherwise, the magnifier will not focus properly. The clarity and definition doesn't seem as good as when using the camera for picture taking purposes. This app does feature a night mode for reading which provides a black background with white print.
Works well on note 3 Suprised how close it can focus. Of course small camera = not much zoom but the note 3 works pretty well zoom can be more (digital zoom that is)
Redesigned for compatibility with new devices.
Added continuous auto-focusing.
Added pause button.
