    Amazing for use when trying to use camera for notes, getting camera to focus on small letters. So frustrating with standard camera apps. Beautiful app.

    I just downloaded this app. So far, so good, seems pretty cool. I especially like the slider.

    It is not something I use every day but it does what it promise when I have to use it. Well developed. Thanks.
