Enhance your vision. Enhance your dining experience.

Don’t struggle to read the menu. Use DimLit to discretely see all your choices. Relax and enjoy your evening.

DimLit can amplify available light without the conspicuous glare of your device’s torch. Don’t worry, you can use the torch if you want, but that usually wont be necessary.

DimLit can also magnify and increase the contrast of the live video stream from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch camera.

DimLit is simple to use. Just hold your iPhone or iPod touch a few inches from whatever you are trying to read. Touch the screen and hold, then use the displayed controls to adjust the magnification or fine tune the light amplification. DimLit will “learn” the adjustments you make to the lightness.

Double tap to enter high contrast mode. High contrast mode is especially useful for reading light printing on a light background (or dark printing on a dark background). Double tap again to go back to normal mode.

DimLit is not a flashlight app or a fake night vision app. It uses digital image processing algorithms on a live video feed from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch camera . DimLit does not require a built-in torch (flash). It works with the available light, avoiding the glare that would occur when using the torch at short distances.

These algorithms have been optimized to give you the best results while limiting battery usage. Be sure to turn off DimLit when you are done using it. Just press the Home button on your iPhone or iPod touch to turn off DimLit.

Tips for best results when using DimLit:

Hold your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch a few inches from the page you are trying to read. If you hold it to close to the page, the camera in your mobile digital device will not be able to focus.

Wait a second or two before making any adjustments. This will give your mobile digital device time to make any automatic adjustments it can.

Remember that your camera is in the corner of your mobile device, not the center. Keep this in mind when positioning your mobile device.

Be sure to turn off DimLit by pressing the Home button when you are done. DimLit does not shut off automatically (otherwise the screen would dim while you are trying to read).
