I was looking for a macro lens for my cellphone but didn't want a knockoff from China and couldn't pay $200 for one lens. I was playing around with a magnifier app on my phone and, after zooming out a bit, voila. Macro lens. The app is Cozy Magnifier & Microscope. The app is free with ads or $6 to remove the ads.
