Awesome!!!

As a legally blind veteran, this app is useful in restaurants and places that is hard to see to read. It would be better if you could change the colors for reading. Example; yellow letters on black background, green letters on black background, white letters on blue background. Just suggestions, but still an awesome app. Thank you.

I would like it more if I constantly didn't have to keep focusing and it is especially tuff to do when your other hand is holding what you want to see and yours wrists don't bend like they use to.

Awesome app.

LOVE the manual focus!!! It's like having a microscope in your hand. Sometimes I have to take pictures of really small electronic parts and this is great! Autofocus really fails you at super close range.

Excellent app

Much appreciation for this app. Saves this old man's tired eyes from mis-reading his pill bottles. Makes my life a lot easier. Keep up the good work.

Love it! A must have

Simple, yet efficient - if you need to be able to read small prints or find difficult reading can labels when shopping, you must get this app!

This app is a god send, not a real real religious guy, I was diagnosed with brain cancer last year and lost 80% of my left perf vision. Since then, reading small print has gotten worse. My solution was to use my web cam, in one hand and the object in the other. Very difficult to say the least. Please continue the effort, its awesome. I have passed this on to all my GBM fighters, so hopefully you'll get more downloads. Might consider ios and Android also. Again, thank you for the effort and the app.
