    Either I need a magnifying glass or some of the app screen fonts are to small to read. Even a few of the game graphics are so freaking tiny they are hard to make out.

    Maybe some of these apps need the pinch to zoom option, like when using safari.

    I sometimes have to strugle with the font used in the SMS app, as there is no zoom function, unlike in Safari.

    I can see all the functions on my iPhone just fine and for instance, the letters in the USA Today app are just fine for reading. Certain apps, like iShoot, A 100 Pushup Workout Program and iStethoscope use such tiny letters that they make it hard to read them.

    So maybe I am posting this more to get developers to listen up and use larger font sizes. I know I am not the only one concerned about this issue.

    Agreed! I use app called TextLater on a daily basis ... love this app (I use it as a self-reminder), however the text box is so small ... a minor gripe, but still would be nice to get a touch larger font.

    Any Font smaller than the one used for the home screen icons, is just ridiculously to tiny to comfortably read.
