iMagnify Turns Your BlackBerry Camera Into A Magnifying Glass

receipt-pic 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.

  1. DId you try onl half depressing the action button, so that it focuses but doesn’t snap a pic? But even if it DID snap a pic, you couldn’t just delete it right after, while still in image view?

  2. Wow this is a very simple, yet extremely useful application. Like it!

    • In what way is this app different to the built in camera? Just purchased it and I wish I had not bothered. It’s just a shortcut to the camera!!

  3. I like the app on the iPhone where you can scan the UPC symbol and it’ll tell you where you can buy that product at competitors’ stores for cheaper!

  4. Can’t you simply picture it and zoom ? what’s the difference ?

  5. Good application

  6. This is just the same as picture and zoom, still nice share.

  7. Good application, but Can’t you simply picture it and zoom ?
