    This is my first post. I've had a Moto Droid since day one, and I just love it. It is without a doubt better than any phone that I've had over the years, and that includes the iPhone, BB, etc.

    However, there are 2 things that I don't understand - Font size and a spell checker. It is imposiible to read the small font size in emails or text messages.

    1. Why has there not been an app to either change the font size or be able to zoom in? Picasy has incorporated multi-touch for zooming, so I've to assume that its doable! Why not have the same in an email client.

    2. Why is there not an email client out there that allows for spell checking? There are many such apps for the BB! I am a terrible speller.

    I am not complaining, I just want to understand the limitations from a developers prospective, as I am sure these isuues will eventually be addressed.:)

    Thanks for your post. I guess no one has a REAL answer to what so many business users are complaining about. :mad:

    1. No - I think one day something will come along.
    2. Not sure - Isn't that what autocorrect does?

    The application Spare Parts has a setting for font size.

    You should have spelling suggestions for each word you type with the software keyboard, but if you are using the hardware one you are limited to it autocorrecting common mistakes for now sadly.

    You might have a look in the market for the email program called K9 or K-9. It might have that feature, I'm not sure.

    Spare parts did nothing to change the font size in gmail on my Moto Droid, have they updated it to make it work? I haven't tried it since Droid launch weekend....

    To be honest I never tried it I just saw it had the setting -- haha.

    Sorry, I guess it helps when the setting actually works!
