I love this app! Use it constantly when talking is not convenient. Only two reasons it's not 5-star: (1) the keyboard input screen and settings screen are white which is jarring when text are embiggened because the user is constantly switching from typing on a white background to reading on black background. Consistent (preferably black) backgrounds would be better. (2) It would be nice if the text was embiggened simultaneously as the user is typing. Similar to the "Big" app on iOS.

You don't know how handy this is until you use it. Laryngitis, getting served three deep at the bar, clandestine conversation, communicating in loud environments, or with the hard of hearing, quick note taking, and getting served at the bar...again. Sometimes the simplest apps, well executed, deserve the highest praise.

This app keeps finding new uses for me. I was most recently able to communicate to dental staff and a pharmacist with a mouth full of gauze in an easy to read manner making full use of my phone screen. I don't notice any ads within the app, which is refreshing. I'd pay for a paid version of this.
