    Needs much better image stabilization. Useful if reading very short excerpts of text, but don't plan on reading a book with this thing. The words blur everytime you move from one word to the next. If you can fit what you need to read in the window, without having to move or moving very little, then you might find this app useful. But, if you need to read a paragraph when the text is magnified, you'll probably get a headache trying to focus & refocus with even the slightest movement. (Nokia Lumia icon user)

    Great concept, flawed execution. This app would be a really useful tool for technicians who constantly need to grab numbers off tags with tiny print, but a trip to the camera easily reveals that this isn't taking full advantage of our hardware. Won't focus right for anything.
