    I was at Rite aid picking up my prescription and found this for $12 and just had to try it out.

    You get a fish eye lense, macro lense and an 0.67x wide angle lense.
    I've got no use for a fish eye lense I don't think but the wide angle and macro for sure.
    The fish eye lenses doesn't seem that great anyways but I really wouldn't know.
    The wide angle does have a huge effect but it does work.

    At first I thought I was missing the macro until I realize that the wide angle lense screws onto it :eek:

    It just clips right onto your phone or tablet, and is supposed to work on most makes and models.

    I almost forgot an example of the macro lense, honestly I probably would have played the $12 for just the macro.

    This is the best I could get without it

    And this is with the macro lense, it obviously makes a huge difference.

    I have read about these. But have never heard if they are any good or worked. Looks fun to play with. I think they were advertised on TV at one point.

    There might have been one, but I'm pretty sceptical of anything advertised on TV and would certainly seek a different brand if they were.
    As far as I'm concerned there are only 4 good products advertised on TV.
    The Ronco Showtime rotisserie, oxyclean, Flex seal, and Kaboom shower cleaner.

    The Macro lens really is the best part of this, the wide angle lens doesn't do much.
    Maybe I'll post a picture or two with the fish eye lens and someone who knows a thing or two can tell us if it's actually doing a good job of whatever it's supposed got do.

    Flex Seal is good stuff. Haven't tried the other stuff. I remember now where I saw them..... I get emails from the Kim Komando computer show had a write up about them.

    Oxyclean, good.

    What about My Pilllow? Interested in the window cleaner stuff from Fuller Brush Co. Read it is pretty good stuff. But not cheap. You don't get very much with the typical order.

    Haven't tried either yet, but the pillow and the fuller full Chrystal are US made so I would be willing to try them.

    Hey Hickory, that's pretty cool.
    How far away is the macro...ineffective?

    You've gotta be right up on it, within a few inches for sure.

    It's spelled "lens". Not "lense".
