I love my phone, but just hate the fact that the font is so tiny. I have 20/20 vision at a distance, but have to wear glasses for small print.Is there anything I can do to get the font size bigger? I had no problem at all reading text messages, etc. my previous phone (LG Envy 2).
This is my first post. I've had a Moto Droid since day one, and I just love it. It is without a doubt better than any phone that I've had over the years, and that includes the iPhone, BB, etc.
However, there are 2 things that I don't understand - Font size and a spell checker. It is imposiible to read the small font size in emails or text messages.
1. Why has there not been an app to either change the font size or be able to zoom in? Picasy has incorporated multi-touch for zooming, so I've to assume that its doable! Why not have the same in an email client.
2. Why is there not an email client out there that allows for spell checking? There are many such apps for the BB! I am a terrible speller.
I am not complaining, I just want to understand the limitations from a developers prospective, as I am sure these isuues will eventually be addressed.
I am trying to play the bigger size audio wav file(which is >20 mb) using the following code(AudioTrack) on my Android 1.6 HTC device which basically has less memory. But i found device crash as soon as it executes reading, writing and play. But the same code works fine and plays the lesser size audio wav files(10kb, 20 kb files etc) very well.
P.S: I should play PCM(.wav) buffer sound, the reason behind why i use AudioTrack here. Though my device has lesser memory, how would i read bigger audio files bytes by bytes and play the sound to avoid crashing due to memory constraints. Code...
Could someone guide me please to play the AudioTrack code for bigger size wav files?
Thought some others might be interested in doing this if they haven't already. First off, you need root access to do this, and I am not responsible for any damage you may do to your device.
1. Download any font to your SD card. Make sure it is a TrueType font (most are) but double check anyway. Check out dafont.com for a huge selection of fonts. 2. Rename this font to Clockopia. Make sure the "C" is capitalized. 3. Now, open up Root Explorer (or any other file manager with root access) and navigate to system/fonts/. 4. Long click on Clockopia.ttf and copy it. 5. Paste it on your SD Card somewhere and rename it to something like Clockopia-Original. This way you always have a backup. 6. Now, long-click and copy your new downloaded Clockopia. Don't paste it anywhere yet. 7. Navigate back to system/fonts/ and press the "Mount R/W" button. 8. Long click on Clockopia.ttf and press "Delete" 9. Paste the new Clockopia in its place. 10. On the new Clockopia.ttf, long click and press "permissions". Check all the boxes under "Read" and the user box under "Write".
I have a friend that is visually impaired and has a hard time reading normal sized fonts on cell phones. she currently has a blackberry tour because she can adjust the font size and make it large enough that she can read the screen easily. does anyone know of an android phone that you can adjust the font size on? or is there a program for a android phone that blows the screen up? she really likes the capabilities of android phones but needs to be able to see whats on the screen!
As much as I wanted to use the native Gmail app, the font size was just too small (seems like a common Android problem except in the browser). To remedy this I simply configured my Gmail (actually Google Apps) account as an IMAP account with the regular Android Mail. Here, font size is fully scalable (about six selections) and they apply to both reading email to typing new email. This will have to do until someone fixes the dedicated Gmail app font size. On the positive side, this actually works better in receiving email sent to the phone as it was definitely NOT full push with the Gmail app as it's supposed to be. Having them both setup it's easy to see that mail arrives much faster with the regular IMAP mail app than with the Gmail, which is really odd.
I'm creating Tabs for my application and I wonder how do I change the font size in the Tab Host (Tab Menu) in the following code, that is the font size of Menu1, Menu2, Menu3, Menu4: TabHost host=getTabHost(); Code...
How can you manually change the font size of a webview? e.g. When the page loads up in the webview the font size is like 24pt. and way too large for my android's screen. I've looked into the "websettings" but it seems that the two are not related.
I'm looking for a way to increase the font on my menus, settings, and for the general overall OS system. I realize I can add apps like Handcent that will allow me to do it for things like SMS/MMS. But I also would like to have a way to just increase the font for everything else. After coming over to the Eris from several other smartphones where the font could be adjusted, I'm concerned that I havent found a way on the Eris.
And no, I am not looking for answers such as, "Put on your reading glasses". LOL. I'm hoping I'm just overlooking a simple setting, and maybe an easy app that I can get thru The Market ?
Is there any way to change the dpi or font size of a particular app... like for eg the font size on the google currents app is too big ... and the whole feed is not readable we have to touch the feed to read the content... so is there any way to decompile the apk and edit some values to change the dpi/font size.....
I create a game board with squares. The size of each square (both height and width) is phone_pixel_width/number_of_squares to maximize the size of each square on the game screen depending on resolution (oh and I do not support mdpi devices, thus it does not get to small).Now my problem is that I also write text in these squares. If I use the same font size for HVGA screens and for WVGA (hdpi-normal) screens the font gets to big on the HVGA (mdpi-normal) screen. I was thinking about being able to select font size depending on its width and could thus adapt the font size perfectly to the calculated square width. Is there any easy way of doing this (note: I am using TextPaint and not TextView) or do I have to calculate this myself, on the fly so to speak by creating some kind of table at start-up.
Full disclosure: There are millions of us semi-old guys who need reading glasses, but have perfect sight for everything else. We need the ability to use a larger font for the calling number. Its OK if the caller is in the contact list, but if it's not I really want to read the number quickly and decide yes/no on taking the call. Grabbing the readers takes time, and can be sketchy when driving.
I am trying to put CheckBox with multiple lines and all lines after fist with smaller font size same as we have under from home page Menu->Settings->Sound & Display->Silent mode. It shows text "Silent mode" on first line and then some more text (kind of help/current settings) for this option and still CheckBox itself is aligned in the center of all the lines (may be on left or right side). Is that can be done by only one control/widget or group of many controls/widgets?I can only think of by using table but it is complex.
Does the Nexus One allow larger font sizes for email for old, tired eyes? With the move to Verizon I am considering trying one out. I already have three phones on Verizon so adding a fourth would be easy enough. I actually had the T-Mobile version but radio performance was horrid (no signal in places where an unlocked iPhone was able to make calls) and I'm hoping that on the Verizon network the radio issues will be solved. I don't remember having trouble with email, but I had the phone for such a short time (under a day) I can't remember if I had email issues.
Does anybody know if I will be able to increase the email font size on the Incredible? I have BB Storm 2 and can't wait to get rid of it. I tried and returned the Droid because I don't want to put my reading glasses on every time I get an email or text. I have talked to several Android 2.1 users who tell me that this can be done, but not a single one has been able to show me that it can be done.
