iPiece will show a magnifier window right next to your cursor. Whenever you want to see things closer, double-click the eyeglasses icon in the menu bar and iPiece's magnifier will appear.

When you're done with the magnifier, double-click the icon again and it will disappear until you want it back.

It should work on any Macintosh that will support Mac OS X 10.4; however, iPiece makes use of OpenGL, so a Macintosh with a graphics card capable of supporting Quartz Extreme will be able to use iPiece much more effectively.

What's New:
Added customizable hot keys for Toggling magnification, zooming in and out, and growing/shrinking the sample area.
iPiece will now show the magnification window at startup if it's set to. Before, iPiece would default to having the magnifier off when it first loaded.
You can now change settings when the magnifier is turned off.
iPiece used to temporarily hide the magnifier when the user pressed the control and shift keys down. This is no longer needed now that we have global hot keys.
