When I first read about iMagnify in our forums (Thx Bigo) I thought the app was a really creative use for the BlackBerry camera. It would let you magnify small print into the equivalent of a 2x magnifier. This sounded like a great idea for people who have to carry around reading glasses or just have trouble reading small print. The app is available now in App World for $2.99.
Then the more I started thinking about the concept the more I realize you could probably do this for free by firing up the BlackBerry camera. I tried it by zooming in on the receipt you see to your right but the problem was that without taking the picture the autofocus would not kick in a clear up the image so it would be readable.
I have not had a chance to try iMagnify myself but let me know if it works any better! I think the idea for the app is actually pretty cool.
