A magnifying glass is an incredibly useful tool. Unfortunately, a magnifying glass isn’t always readily available.
But your phone is usually within arm’s reach, so make it work to your advantage. You can turn it into a magnifying glass with the right app. I recommend the Magnifying Glass with Light for Apple gadgets and Magnificent Magnifier HD for Android users.
These magnifying apps use your smartphone’s camera to enlarge what’s in front of you. They also take advantage of your phone’s flash, which can help if you’re trying to read in a poorly lit area.
No more squinting at menus or holding labels at arm’s length. Now you can read fine print without your glasses and see things clearly in dim light!
