Claro MagX turns your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad device into a powerful high definition visual magnifier. MagX makes small items bigger. Make small text in books and newspapers readable, study and photograph small objects and labels, see menus in the dimly lit restaurant. The wide range of magnification, high contrast and colour viewing options makes the text easier on your eyes.

“Wonderful application for the visually impaired. Comparing to magnifying glasses a lot of time in the 500 €, this application is just as efficient or even more effective.”

Apple App Store User Review

Application is developed by experts in low vision technology, and we look to use the power of the iPad to provide a high-performance cost-effective alternative to dedicated hand held video magnifiers.

Magnifier leverages the power and quality of the device cameras, high resolution retina displays, large memory, processing power, built in accessibility features and long battery life.
