"Excellent, a very useful tool..."

November 21, 2012  |  By JayBee1076

 |  Version: Magnify 2.0

Pros

- Does practically everything you could want in a magnifier.
- Flexible screen positioning and resizing
- "Lock" option very handy (would be even handier to be able to lock, and remember a minimised window...)
- Exceedingly good magnification range

Cons

- The apparently permanent cross-hair sucks
- An options panel???

Summary

Haven't re-booted since installing, nor have I had to try and remove this program yet (anything may still yet happen), but after having tried a few magnifiers.... so far, this one's a keeper!

"Simple and elegant tool"

November 28, 2008  |  By BPBerk

 |  Version: Magnify 2.0

Pros

I use Magnify constantly. It's one of the basic utilities that I put on every machine that I set up.

Cons

Not much to complain about, it would be nice have more granular levels of zoom, better yet zoom with the mouse wheel...

Summary

Great app that does a simple thing well.

"good, but missing support for multiple monitors"

January 17, 2008  |  By kierah_

 |  Version: Magnify 2.0

Pros

its a small application, leaves no footprint in registry and works as expected.

Cons

for systems with two or more displays, magnification only works on the 'primary' display. screen space on other displays seems to be out of bounds, and the magnifier displays a filler color instead.

"Fast and EASY!"

March 13, 2005  |  By Nesus

 |  Version: Magnify 2.0

Pros

Fast and easy! Perfect little magnifier that zooms in and out easily!

Cons

A more "continuous" zoom function had been a nice addition.

"simply works and works simply"

August 28, 2004

 |  Version: Magnify 2.0

Summary

The only thing that I would like to add is an ability to magnify to 150%... 100% is obviously not enough, and sometimes 200% is too much. Other than that, it works without a hitch.

"the magnifier has made my internet fun and easy. thank you."

June 21, 2004

 |  Version: Magnify 2.0

Summary

i am legally blind and the magnifier has been a real blessing for me. there are still things i cant read, but thatis mostly due to color contrasts. maybe some day our computer will be like star trek and we will be able talk to it and it will talk back. again, thank you for the magnifier.

"PERFECT!! no problems"

February 26, 2004

 |  Version: Magnify 2.0

Summary

great program!! super small and works PERFECTLY.. Someone that wrote a negative comment said that it "doesn't zoom out".. it does zoom in AND out exactly like it says (maybe they didn't know that even though zoom out is the minus (-) key, the zoom IN is the plus (+) key: consisting of holding shift AND pressing +.

"Does what is says"

February 04, 2004

 |  Version: Magnify 2.0

Summary

Great little magnifier. Just use the + and - to zoom in and out. I haven't noticed a reduction in performance at all. I can't believe it's only 8K.

"Meets my needs just fine!"

January 15, 2004

 |  Version: Magnify 2.0

Summary

Uses up a bit of CPU time, sure, but it's not like I'm rendering movies in the background. I have to run a proprietary database application that is required to run at 1280x1024 resolution, and Magnify is saving my eyesight! Takes a bit of getting used to, but you can drag the window around and resize it to place it where you want. I recommend it.
