Why can we not adjust the size of the text in the Stack Exchange app? The tiny size text may be unhealthy to my eyes. Can the ability to adjust the text size be added?

This question came from our site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API.

  • I'm not sure if the text size is influenced by accessibility features of the mobile OS or not, but you should likely specify which platform (Android/iOS) you're using the app on. – Tim Stone Mar 26 '15 at 14:14
  • It's Android. But I have installed it on iOS, too. Both of them cannot adjust the text size free. – Chad Mar 26 '15 at 14:19
  • (on iOS, the app supports Dynamic Type: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/243111/…) – ᔕᖺᘎᕊ Mar 26 '15 at 14:25
  • Thanks. How about Androids? I suppose this feature is very important for everyone who love this app and health reading. – Chad Mar 26 '15 at 14:27
  • As far as I can see not possible in android app and not requested yet, so removing the iOS tag. /cc @Tim. – ShaWiz Mar 26 '15 at 15:01

    On the iPad, Im already using large font sizes. The Stack app doesnt follow those sizes set in iOS settings. They are still substantially smaller than in other DynamicType apps. This really needs to be updated to better respect system preferences, or, at a minimum, allow us to increase it in the app itself. Its a simple change but has a huge impact. – MarqueIV Oct 27 '17 at 23:03

As of the next update, 1.0.61, both the default text size is larger (to actually match the design guide's standards) and we now respect the accessibility options everywhere.

This means if the UI is still too small, you can go to your phone's settings --> Display --> Font Size and change it.

The text size in the android app is dependent on the text size of your phone. You can adjust it in the general settings.

On my Sony Xperia with Android 4.3 that's in Settings > Display > Font size.
