    Works perfectly. Great for dimly lit restaurants with small text used in menu. Highly recommended!

    Not worth the time to install.

    Nice App, but needs speed improvements when using filters.

    Last update caused a black screen. Uninstalled and reinstalled and it works again. Woohoo!

    With recent update, filters don't work. All I get is a black screen.

    Please, remove "Microsoft", оставьте просто "Карманная лупа". А то смысла никакого, только текст за край экрана выразит. About app, it have some performance issues, and bugs, but it useful.
