Smart Magnifier (v1.5) manual

Hello. I'm Android Boy, the chief developer of Smart Tools co.,

I released this magnifier app just to enrich Smart Tools package. But some users had complained that it was the same as a rear camera. I can guess that they are the young who have nice eyesight. :)

When I read small letters written on medicine bottles and phone batteries, I often got depressed. I could not read them. To me, a magnifier is becoming a daily necessity, not a toy. How about you?

※ Introduction video

The magnifier app has 3 screen modes.
(1) Magnifier UI : phones only
① Menu
② More (sub menu) : landscape / portrait
③ LED light on/off
④ Mode toggle

(2) Full Screen
① Share : the button appears after screen capture.
② Rotate : camera view rotation
③ Auto-focus : to activate auto focus, click the button or tap anywhere.
④ LED flash on/off
⑤ Mode toggle
⑥ Screen capture (WITH button layout)
⑦ Zoom : pinch-zoom, volume up/down buttons
⑧ Freezing : freeze current view. A new screen opens.

(3) Frozen Screen
① Flip : flip the screenshot horizontal
② Back : move to the previous screen
③ Download (WITHOUT button layout)


 Sharing function
You can share your latest screenshot through sharing apps. This sharing button will appear after a screen is captured.

Q. The screen becomes black.
A. Does your device have a rear camera? If yes, other app is using your camera. Just restart your device.

Q. Where are the screenshots stored?
A. For OS 9 and more, see /Pictures/smart-tools/.

Q. I cannot enlarge (zoom) camera view.
A. Some Chinese devices do not support camera zoom. Use digital zoom after freezing.

A. After freezing the screen, you can download the screenshot without any layout.
