∞ Eye Glasses gives iPhone users some optical help

I’m depressed to realize I actually find this app useful, but my vision is going. Too many years of toiling away in dimly lit monasteries working on illuminated manuscript, I expect.

Eye Glasses

Eye Glasses is a brand new app from Freeverse that can help keep you from squinting. It’s like having a pair of virtual bifocals.

Using the camera built into iPhones, and optimized especially for the iPhone 3GS, Eye Glasses uses the built-in camera to magnify imagery by 2x, 4x, 6x and 8x. You hold the object about five inches away from the iPhone and the camera will magnify it.

This comes in handy for reading fine print, checking for minor defects in objects and more.
