Question

Looking for App - Large on Screen Text.

by foolygoofy / April 23, 2013 9:18 AM PDT

Hello Everyone

Last week I found myself in a club and I couldn't get a short request to the bartender. In the end I opened "Notes" on my iphone and wrote a simple "Two Beers Please", however she had problem reading from where she was and had to get my phone to her so she could read it, and so my search started for an app to display a few words in large font, on the screen. After a week, I have found no matches.

Has anybody seeing such app before? Something that I can type "Hello!!!" then select the text size to display big on my screen or the app will auto size it for me?

Thanks

Can You advise what Phone that U actually HAVE?
by TWMEANS / May 11, 2013 7:33 PM PDT

If U can advise on your actual Phone &model #, there may be a Very much simpler way to increasing your font size with only the settings of UR Phone, again, Depending on UR Actual model phone. I know my Galaxy S 3, I am able to temp. Increase my font size, then place it back 2 my preferences. Your phone may be able to do the very same function temporarily w/o the need of "Another" Unnecessary APP! Just my .02cents worth on UR Original question. If U R happy with what U have done 2 resolve the issue, then I'm glad U got it all figured out!

I use an iPhone 5, but I found the app that I was looking for, it does what I was looking for and more. The app is called "Big".

Thanks
