Nokia today announced a new app called Pocket Magnifier.

The application uses the camera on Nokia Lumia smartphones to enlarge small and difficult-to-read text on real-world items such as pill bottles, timetables, magazines, and so on. Pocket Magnifier lets people pinch-to-zoom in order to make the text larger, as well as adjust the background and font colors to ease readability. The app can also make use of the camera’s flash to provide lighting in environments where it is too dark to read.

Nokia Pocket Magnifier is free to download from the Windows Phone Store.
