Does what it says very well. Allows you to change system font size beyond what is available through the Settings app. ADVANCED: If you have ADB, you can also use this app to change the system zoom ratio (requires WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS permission). My new Samsung would only zoom down to 88%. I wanted to set it 75%, and this app did it. This setting is system-level, so it's permanent and survives restart. You don't need to keep the app notification active. ADS: interstitial pop-up ads. Buy it!

Great app for the "old" and "blind"...LOL. I just have one question since some are being answered here. I am on Android 11 (new to me...was on 8 rooted cust rom for the last 3 years on previous phone) and it works great, But when it reboots, the font is still modified, but the font size goes to the very biggest on the scale and I set it for 2 tics below. Was there a way to make it stay that I missed or is that a bug? It's not a big deal to fix, but maybe it can be looked at? Thanks for the Great little handy app!!! Still gonna give it 5 Stars!

I need more information to check what the problem is. Please send me a log by going to: Big Font > Settings > App log > MENU > Email > select Gmail Please describe the problem in the email; otherwise, the system will ignore the log email. Please also attach some screenshots of the problem.

This app hardwires the font size in the code so the font won't be changed after Big Font changed the system font scaling factor. For more information, please go to: Big Font > Settings > About > FAQ If you are using an Android 7.0 or greater device, please use the "Zoom display" function instead. Big Font > top-left navigation menu > Zoom display
