Default ChangeFont: Free utility

Please Login to Remove!

ChangeFont will give your BlackBerry a Menu Item called Change Font... in the System Menu and when you click it you can select from Small, Medium or Large. By clicking that it changes the font of the fields in the screen. There's also a selection button to reset the font to the original font.

Great for those times you need a larger font to read something...

From our friend Fabian at MobilUtil.

Heheh...I was being serious, though. I have a handful of users who use size 14 font. It's amazing they can read anything on their devices.

I have a few users like this as well. This app may be useful to them.

My wife is, at times, optically challenged. This might prove quite handy for her.

Thanks to JS and Fabian

It doesn't seem to work on HTML emails. When I try to "get plain text" I don't see any text at all - a problem seemingly unrelated to ChangeFont, but it keeps ChangeFont from working.

Ditto here. Deleted the app. Great idea though.

Tried it in Ubertwitter but the Font Menu did not appear. I guess it may only work over certain apps.

Seems I can't edit my message above.

Another observation: I used the application in the browser. It appeared to actually shrink my font when I used "large" font but made it BOLD.

I found the same thing. My default is Alpha Sans 9 but when I went to a Large font, it ended up looking like size 8 but Bold.

Not to knock the app, it's a great idea and one I'd find useful. Would be nice if say, Large made it 1 level higher and Small made it 1 level lower than the current font size (or something like that).
