Illuminate Your World is a nice app that allows you to easily and quickly check your vision. I tested this app on a friend who has glasses, and even he could tell that the app works perfectly. Overall the app is well designed and the sound prompts at every stage in a soothing female voice makes the app even better.
I rate the app a 4 out of 5!
