16 MY MAG­NI­FY­ING LENS

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

The name says it all. If you find it dif­fi­cult to read small print on medicine bot­tles or in­struc­tions, you can use your phone along with a free mag­ni­fy­ing app like Mag­ni­fier (iPhone) or Ul­tra Mag­ni­fier+ (An­droid) to in­creae the size of the text and make it read­able. To top this, some of these apps also de­ploy the cam­era flash as a read­ing light. No, you won’t be able to burn holes in car­bon pa­per with this mag­ni­fy­ing lens. But peo­ple suf­fer­ing from pres­by­opia (in­abil­ity to fo­cus on ob­jects up close) or late adult on­set my­opia can use this fea­ture to great ben­e­fit.
