Any chance we could have an option to increase font size? Everyone seems to love the default microscopic font size on Android, but not me. :)

I think you just made up a word

But I like it.

I added a mantis issue for this.

like to take credit, but...

It's from an old Simpsons episode. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lisa_the_Iconoclast

Thanks for adding it.

Hey, we use Mantis too, sometimes. What do you think of it? Do you ever use the tagging? Our version does not have it but I keep thinking it might be useful to have so folks will find it easier to find items.

I missed the reference completely

Been a long time...

Mantis is alright. I use it mainly because it takes remarkably few clicks to manage issues and has a pretty decent roadmap/changelog. It's also quick to find issues using the filter, which is probably why I haven't had the need to use any tags. I've use a few others in the past (eventum/track+) that were ok too. Mantis does have some decent integration with Eclipse...so you can track your tasks directly in eclipse.

font size

Wait until you are 52 and need bifocals.

The ability to increase font size is important for us old geezers and you too will be an old geezer some day.

Or try being visually impaired!

Any news on this? Would others be interested?

Is it difficult to make fonts bigger for Android apps? I ask because most apps seem to have (and keep) it small. Kind of a drag for some of us. Makes me think the iphone might be a better choice.

Theme

I just took another look at this and it looks like it could be done with a theme.

font size bigger

I too would vote for an option to make the font size in the show notes bigger. I play podcasts while driving and sometimes like to quickly refer to show notes and skip ahead through some shows. It's difficult to read them when the player is mounted 2 feet away.

font size/screen resolution

Hello,

I can go into my galaxy note 2 settings( with a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels (~267 ppi pixel density) ) and it seems that I can set font size in my settings in android( Settings-My device-Display-Screensize)
If I change the font size and go into doggcatcher this has an immediate impact because I see more lines in doggcatcher settings.
However if I look at my episodes on any given feed the number of podcasts it would display do not change. I would really like the option to switch so I can see more
episodes on my screen.
I have an older droid x2 (with a screen resolution of 540 x 960 pixels (~256 ppi pixel density)) and it shows more episodes (about 1/2 an episode but still) per feed than it will on my much larger Note2.
I would expect to see a lot more episodes per feed I will also post this message in other post I don't mind at all if moderators will remove my post for that reason it's just I wanted to find an answer to my issue without created a new post.
