    Default Gmail text size

    Is there any way to increase the text size on the Gmail app for iOS? I like the push, but I can't read it with these old eyes!

    Not unless you increase the font size of your phone itself.

    That didn't do anything.

    If changing the font size overall on your phone did not change anything within the Gmail app and there is no font size setting in the app, Then there is not much else you can do. Did you check under accessibility? Normally changing the font size on your phone affects most everything else.....text size and so on.

    Turn the phone into landscape when viewing emails on the gmail app. It makes a big difference!

    Seems only apple has the common sense to use a font which is easy to read. Experiencing a similar issue with the mailbox app. I can read it, but it certainly could be better.

    When I was testing the Mailbox app, I could deal with its font sizes, but not that of the Gmail app. It's been a while since Ive used it, but unless we are given the option to increase the font size, I will NOT use it again. Besides, the native mail app is more than sufficient for my needs at this time.

    Agreed, older eyes and small text do not go hand in hand. I think my feedback to Google has fallen on deaf ears.

    I agree -- would be REALLY nice. I'm using the 'Zoom' settings in accessibility for the moment
