If like us you're a sporadic wearer of glasses, you'll know the problem only too well of forgetting your eyewear and the subsequent squinting and eye strain that follows. A new application for the iPhone aims to make this occurrence a thing of the past by transforming your phone into a magnifying glass. The iMagnify application can enlarge your target from 1x to 4x by sliding your finger along a slide control on the side of the display.
The applications developers claim that iMagnify works just as well in low light conditions as it does in better lit areas. They hope that the app will not just appeal to those utilising it for everyday use such as reading labels or checking receipts, but also for coin and stamp collectors.
iMagnify is available to download from the Apple App Store now.
