ACMagnifyingGlass is a magnifier like the one you can find in the notes iOS app when moving the cursor.

Build Status



Just copy the files under the MagnifyingGlass directory into your project, including the .h, .m and .png files.


Simply create a ACMagnifyingView view (with alloc/initWithFrame or from nib) and a magnifier will show up when you tap the screen, magnifying the view and its subviews.

It is possible to use a custom magnifier, like this:

ACMagnifyingGlass *mag = [[ACMagnifyingGlass alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0, 0, 120, 120)];
mag.scale = 2;
self.magnifyingView.magnifyingGlass = mag;

If you want a loupe like the real one:

ACLoupe *loupe = [[ACLoupe alloc] init];
self.magnifyingView.magnifyingGlass = loupe;


This magnifier is inspired by the one from Chadwick Wood
