1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Don't laugh, you will need reading glasses some day too! But is there an app that would let the Droid act as a magnifying glass. Like in a restaurant to point the camera at the menu and have it magnify the print on the screen??? This would be cool!

    the camera doesn't have an optical zoom and the minimum focusing distance seems pretty "far" so I'm not sure this would work

    There is at least one magnifier app in the market. I haven't tried it because it asks for full internet access and access to your contacts, etc. when you try to install.

    If you go to your camera app and doubletap the screen when it's in camera (not video) mode it will zoom, but as iPirate says, it's only digital zoom.

    I downloaded the Magnifier app from the Market over a month ago. I love it. I don't really need it but I show it to friends at restaurants and that app alone makes them want a Droid.
