Magnificent - App Review



A magnifying glass is always useful. Now, I know that you can take a photograph with your iOS device and then zoom it but, this App works differently.

Magnificent works the other way round, in that it allows you to use your device and then take a photograph (if you want to, that is).

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
Initially you have a split screen with the bottom (or right if you are in landscape mode) showing the area being magnified and the other screen the result of the magnification. You can easily toggle to full screen view by flicking left or up (depending on the orientation of your device). Flicking in the opposite direction will restore the split screen view.

You can use either the forward or rear facing camera lens, and easily turn on the flash in poor lighting conditions.

There is also an image stabiliser button when using the rear-facing lens.

Once you have whatever interests you magnified, you can easily tap the camera icon to save a photo.

Cost
Cheaper than a 'real' magnifying glass at $1.

Indispensability
This one of those Apps that will be useful on occasions but won't get used every day.

Dependability
The App works very much like a real magnifying glass, so you will have to adjust the distance between your iOS device and the subject, in accordance with the focal length of the lens.

Security
There are no security issues with the App... unlike a real magnifying glass you can't even accidentally burn yourself when using it in the sun.
