Magnifying Glass With Light

4.5 STARS out of 5

So convient. I whipped out my iPhone, opened up this app and checked out the menu. All in one tap.

In the past, I've had to turn on the camera, turn on the flash and enlarge the screen so I can see the menu. This has two sliders built in, one for the camera zoom and one for the brightness of the flash. I did not know the flash could be dimmed. So cool for the older troubled eyes.
