    I'm not sure if some of you realize this or not so I thought I would just let you know...

    The fonts that are smaller than the default fonts on AtoZ are too hard to read on mobile devices. I end up having to skip those comments most of the time.

    Just an FYI.

    :)

    I had no idea.

    I haven't looked at the mobile app yet, but is there a setting where you can set a default font and size that will override individual users' font and size choices?

    I've noticed the same thing on my phone-I have to enlarge it to read some of the comments.

    I don't mind enlarging it but I have to swing it back and forth with each line and it doesn't always swing nicely so I tend to skip those comments because it messes up my ability to read quickly and easily.

    People can keep the font they want but I wasn't sure everyone knew that they aren't mobile friendly. :cool:

    As far as I know there isn't a specific mobile app for this specific website. Even if you had one, it would have to be for all types of mobile phones. Now the site could go to mobile formatting friendly but I suspect we would lose some of the great features like I tend to do when the weather page automatically wants it to be mobile formatted.

    I believe in order for a mobile app, Amanda would have to install a modification for the forums to enable it to work with the Vbulletin App for iPhones/Androids.

    I read primarily on my phone as well (not the new app) and some fonts are soo small, or the font color is too light to read.

    So, should we all start using 5? Or is the regular default OK for you? Since I have a dumb phone, as opposed to a smart phone, I'll rely on your advice.:cool:

    I use the regular default, which is what I think most people use. It's still small but I'm used to it. Others show up as super tiny so I don't know if that's because it was changed to be that way, or if it's just showing up that way.

    Does my font size come up normal? I'm on an iPhone.

    I'm on my droid, and all I have to do is double tap on the screen and it readjusts the size to a comfortable size, without having to scroll back and forth.

    Cut, I noticed that your posts today have been missing the code for the size and color.

    Kc, when I got the "new app" mine started to do that. The last few posts, I just started going back, editing and deleting it. I'm not sure what the deal is. I planned to report that in the other thread. I will do that after dinner. :)

    Joy, your question after the super big one is default. That's a good size for the phone to handle. Kat yours is fine too.
