    This is not an iOS7 love or hate post. Having said that...

    I'm fine with the flat design. But choosing such thin fonts for a small screen seems like a bad idea. Why is making it harder to read a stylish choice?

    I turned on the Bold font option in Accessibility just to try it out. The phone is SO much easier to read and use. My eyesight is fine, by the way. Try out bold. You might just like it.

    Nice suggestion, I'm sure it will be appreciated by some.

    The bold font selection is a nice option. I wear progressive bifocals, so fine fonts are near impossible to read.

    Bold is great. For me, it gives an ios 6 keyboard look that I prefer. Everything seems crisper with more contrast.

    Well let's give it a try. I had only ios7 on my back up iPhone 4. My iPhone 5 was jailbroken on iOS 6.1. But last week had it replaced under warranty for battery issue. Lucky replacement phone came with iOS 7.0.4.

    I do also, but I don't have any issue reading the screen.

    I don't see this option on mine. I have a 4S. Is this option required to the latest iOS update?

    What is the Bold challenge?

    Are we all switching to Blackberry now?

    Gave it a day, didn't like it and turned it back off. The title bars looked nice in bold, but didn't like how it looked in apps.

    I don't like it. Looks better with the regular font

    Pretty nice for making the text on the lockscreen more readable. But the titles of some of my apps get jammed together on the home screen :(
