    Really innovative idea. So many times and places where I didn't have reading glasses with me and had to squint but I always have phone nearby...doctors office filling out forms, grocery shopping trying to read labels, etc. However, difficult to focus .

    I'll be honest I don't use this to read. I use the light as a flashlight and it is phenomenal. Some of my light switches are not easy to get to and this app has been a life saver!
