Big Font Helps you to See More Clearly on Android


My new Android Phone is 3.5″ which is small enough to fit into my hand. But the fonts are too small to read, even I have choose the Extra large font size in SettingsDisplay or Large text in SettingsAccessibility. If you have the same problem, you shall try Big Font!

Enable Big Font

It is easy. Launch Big Font, choose font size, confirm update, and reboot your Android. If you upgrade to paid version, you will have more flexibility to change font size.

Thoughts

Most programs are fine with Big Font. But some apps using fix size, they look a little weird on screen. Usually they will have the same problem with build-in large or extra large font size.
