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.....
