  • Whether you are trying to read a menu in a dark restaurant, the warning label on your medicine, or the fine print on a contract you possibly should not be signing, a magnifying glass can come in very handy. One with a light is even better.
  • [00:28.60]
  • Good news!
  • [00:30.26]
  • That phone in your pocket is filled with handy tools, including a magnifying glass.
  • [00:39.76]
  • No more squinting! Your phone’s magnifying glass lets you see the small stuff, any time, anywhere.
  • [00:51.87]
  • The iPhone has a useful magnifying glass feature that uses the camera.
  • [01:00.45]
  • You must turn this feature on in order to use it.
  • [01:05.48]
  • To turn on the magnifying glass on your iPhone, go to:
  • [01:11.39]
  • Settings, then General, then Accessibility, then Magnifier.
  • [01:18.92]
  • Turn it to On.
  • [01:22.36]
  • You can also turn Auto-Brightness to on.
  • [01:27.55]
  • Auto-Brightness changes the brightness of the screen based on the available light.
  • [01:36.23]
  • To use the iPhone’s magnifying glass, called the Magnifier, tap the Home button three times.
  • [01:46.09]
  • That will open the magnifying glass screen.
  • [01:50.92]
  • Slide the yellow dot on the Magnifier to zoom in and out.
  • [01:58.30]
  • Slide the dot right to zoom in and left to zoom out.
  • [02:04.95]
  • Tap the lightning icon to turn on the light on your phone and brighten what you are seeing.
  • [02:13.40]
  • Tap the lock icon to keep the camera’s focus level from changing.
  • [02:20.33]
  • Tap the white circle button to freeze the image.
  • [02:25.90]
  • The circle will have a yellow edge while the image is frozen.
  • [02:31.86]
  • Tap the button again to unfreeze the image.
  • [02:37.19]
  • You can freeze the image on the Magnifier and then zoom in on it.
  • [02:44.13]
  • This way the image is stable as you are trying to see it.
  • [02:49.52]
  • Move the image around with your finger to see different parts of the image.
  • [02:56.95]
  • Tap the triangle in the lower right corner of the screen to control the image you are seeing.
  • [03:04.88]
  • The filter lets you adjust the brightness and color of the image.
  • [03:11.66]
  • You can also add colored filters to the image.
  • [03:16.41]
  • In the bottom left corner of the filter screen is an invert button that lets you change the colors.
  • [03:25.37]
  • Tap that to invert the colors.
  • [03:28.89]
  • Some Android phones also have a magnifying glass feature, but you need to turn it on for it to work.
  • [03:39.01]
  • To turn on the magnifying glass, go to Settings, then Accessibility, then Vision, then Magnification and turn it on.
  • [03:54.13]
  • When you need to use the magnifying glass, go to the camera app and tap the screen three times.
  • [04:05.25]
  • To turn off the magnifying glass, tap the screen three times again.
  • [04:12.30]
  • Some Android phones do not come with a magnifying glass feature built in.
  • [04:20.62]
  • You can use zoom in the camera app if you need magnification.
  • [04:28.11]
  • Many magnifying apps are in the Google Play app store with different features.
  • [04:36.97]
  • Some of these apps are free but have advertisements.
  • [04:42.53]
  • Magnifying Glass Flashlight currently has the highest rating of the magnifying apps in the Google Play store.
  • [04:53.02]
  • This app has both magnification and a flashlight to shine a light on what you are trying to see.
  • [05:03.07]
  • Like the iPhone Magnifier, this app can freeze the image so you can zoom in and steady what you are trying to see.
  • [05:14.85]
  • This app has small ads at the bottom of the screen.
  • [05:20.66]
  • They do not flash or move so they are fairly easy to ignore.
  • [05:27.62]
  • The first time you use the app, you will see that the flashlight is on by default.
  • [05:34.90]
  • You can turn this off if you do not need it, and want to save battery, by tapping the lightbulb icon in the lower right corner of the screen.
  • [05:47.59]
  • Tap the “A” button to add a blue filter and invert colors so light becomes dark and dark becomes light.
  • [06:01.16]
  • Tap the Red and Blue button to have the camera light flash like a strobe light.
  • [06:09.79]
  • Tap the camera button to freeze the image and take a screenshot of the image.
  • [06:17.97]
  • Pinch and spread your fingers to zoom in and out of the image.
  • [06:25.22]
  • Tap the photo button on the left to see the screenshots you have taken and to share them with others.
  • [06:37.12]
  • Tap the back button on your phone to return to the magnifying glass.
  • [06:44.36]
  • You can check out other Magnifying Glass apps in the Google Play Store: Magnifying Glass Apps in Google Play.
  • [06:51.75]
  • Be sure to check for apps having a light, if that is important to you.
