I've talked a couple of friends into trying this app, who assumed that the app was only as good as the camera. They were surprised to find that it greatly exceeded their expectations! However, it is worth mentioning that when you turn the phone horizontally, it doesnt adjust. So it only takes portrait photos. But its easy enough to bring the photo into another app and edit the orientation.

Thanks, happy to hear that. The orientation adjustment thing is in the to-do list of our app.

It's great when it works, but sometimes I have trouble getting it to focus on what I want. I have gotten a small tripod with a remote shutter that really helps, because I would sometimes jostle it when touching the button. The tripod was pretty inexpensive, well worth it. The pictures combine well with other apps like Mirror Lab for kaleidoscope or fractal effects or art filters like Varnist.

You can set 2 second timer to prevent jostling while touching button. Some focusing tips: Keep the flash on in the magnifier by tapping the thunderbolt icon. Please tap on the screen to refocus. Ensure that there's at least 5 inch distance between phone and object you are looking at. Try obstructing the camera view for a few seconds by covering it.

Best magnifier out there! It's difficult initially, once you get a feel for how and where to hold the camera it's amazing!! You're able to clearly see the surface the tiniest grain of sand, able to see the smallest occlusion in a diamond, and probably count the pubes on a flea... Considering this is a phone app the clarity is impressive. I was hooked the first week, i examined EVERYTHING! Highly Recommended!!
