Default Ipad app for help authenticating (PSA)?

Does anyone know the iPad app and accessory that Steve Grad plugs in to put a magnification over a signature when he's analyzing one on Pawn Stars?

Though I guess it did not help with the incorrect authentication of Ruth Gehrig replica ball during the last Grey Flannel auction.

Thank you.. Looks like it costs between $100-$150. I suppose nobody has it to review for us? Here's a YouTube video about it I found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oG5vy-bSr88

Like with anything else, a tool is only as useful as the skill of the user employing it.

I don't watch Pawn Stars, but there are commercially available small portable microscopes that plug into your computer with the magnified photo and video viewable live on your computer screen. If you wish, you can take a digital snapshot or record the video. It's essentially a little pointable webcam, but designed for super closeups rather than selfies or videos of your dog. I don't have an ipad, but use one on my apple laptop. Mine goes up to 200x power.

I'm not an autograph person, but use mine to examine the printing ink on prints, documents, trading cards, art and such. Would work fine with pen ink and, in fact, I've viewed pen writing with it, as some of the printed items I examine have handwriting on them.

If you want examination of the power and detail, below is a picture of my jeans pants leg as I was sitting at my computer:

I agree and I don't watch pawn stars either .....but the above is very useful , I personally like an old fashioned microscope and a device that can be purchased from any stamp dealer supply shop, it includes a mini black light and scope its hand held and very portable and last I checked cost about $100.00
