About this app

tl;dr
This widget which looks like "Volume Button" of a T.V remote, enables users to increase font size beyond what is allowed by the Android system settings. Android allows to scale the font up to maximum 1.3 times the default. This enables you to go even bigger.

Thanks for trying out the widget. It is still in Beta phase, so any sort of feedback is more than welcome. Please feel free to email to seniortechneeds@gmail.com.

Longer Version

• The widget is resizable and doesn't take much space on the screen.

• It shows the preview of the target font size right there without opening the app.

• One of the aim of widget is to help seniors or others who have troubles dealing with complicated apps and technology. It would be useful for some parents/grandparents who have hard time remembering and navigating through device settings to change font size etc. They can now do it right from their screen without the widget taking much space.

• Note 1: This might not affect the font size of the text on websites opened in Chrome or other browsers. The font scale on the websites is controlled by the browser itself. For Chrome, it can be changed by going to "Menu Options (on top right)" -> "Settings" -> "Accessibility".

• Note 2: For devices running Android Nougat and above, the system wide font size changes will be reflected immediately. However unfortunately on devices running older versions of Android, due to Android operating system restrictions, it might need a restart for the changed to take affect. The widget and app will still preview the new text sizes to which the text will be changed after the restart and after you are satisfied with the preview size, just restart to confirm.

Very nice app. This is small widget app, I was feeling Quora fonts were too small to read. This app is very handy in increasing the fonts. Just by touching the + button my fonts are increasing to Medium, Large and Huge, where I can read comfortably. After finishing the reading just by touching the - button my fonts are brought back to my normal size. This is very helpful.

Would love to see this be more up a pop up/overlay. That can access on any screen. Currently when i change the font it takes me back to my homepage on my s20.

Too slow to tap + and - sign. There should be some shortcuts like preferred default, preferred large
