    When can we increase font size? A half Bizillian apps and still waiting to be able to read my freaking email without a magnifying glass. And before I get flamed for being old or something else like that; I am not but I do wear glasses. Eagerly waiting an intelligent response or two.

    Maybe an app that would act as a magnifier? Like a mobile widget, that acts as a magnifier. Might not be the most practical, but would make a cool app :)

    I'm in agreement with you. I've only got one decent eye, and even that one sucks compared to the average person. You may want to set up your email account as a favorite in the dolphin browser. Then you can use pinch zoom to increase the size of everything on the web page.

    I'm not sure if that helps, but I thought I'd put it out there.

    I wanna slap myself... how did I overlook the fact that if we had pinch zoom OS wide on the Droid it would greatly help in this, and many other situations!

    This is not a Droid issue. Its a medical issue.

    It's not the first time I've seen this mentioned. What you need is a decent eye doctor. I have terrible vision but I have no problem seeing the font on my Droid. I wear bifocals. And I can see it even without my glasses on. ;)

    Dude thanks for the no flame. Apparently you can read your droid but have trouble understanding simple english? I asked for constructive advice that might lead me to an app. Or should I use sign language? 00l07 you!

    I am referring to you.

    Why do these things always end up like this? I will just go someplace else for answers. Thanks to those who offered their help.

    There is nothing wrong with wanting / having a device that is accessible. A zoomable screen would be a great email feature.

    Hey now, don't let one rotten apple spoil everything for ya. This is generally a great place. It's a lot more layed back here than any other forum I've been part of. We usually just ignore the obnoxious ones (there aren't very many).

    Nice. Very nice. Give the guy a break, with some of the crap apps i've seen in the market, the one the OP is asking for would not be a bad idea. What someone else said, you could always try viewing it on the browser and make it larger on the web page.

    Pardon my frankness but what is so hard about zooming in? Easy fix, no app needed.

    Not hard at all. I was just looking for a way to increase overall font size in general. For everything; without having to zoom in and out.
