    Hey guys - anyone having this issue or heard of it?

    I recently dl'd google scoreboard... my buddy at work recommended it. He has incredible too. The icons didn't fit properly and some text on bottom was cut off so I told him it was crap. He showed me his incred and the app looked fine. I then tried all my apps and noticed that a bunch of games I haven't played in weeks were now showing up with this zoomed in look.... others work/fit flawlessly. These games did work fine previously.

    I'm assuming some other app is to blame but have no idea how to go about it. Any ideas???? I don't want to hard reset if i don't have to...

    did you turn on the phones accessibility features by accident? Settings: Accessibility.

    I believe that acts as a screen magnifier. but i could be wrong.

    Another option is to, one-by-one, uninstall and re-install all of your apps until you find the culprit.

    lol... i know.. that's what i'm dreading. I've been doing it here and there, uninstalling anything i think could be causing it, but i have way too many apps... and i'm also worried if the culprit changed a setting somewhere and uninstalling wouldn't even fix it.

    I think i may just have to hard reset....

    The only app on my HTC incredible s that shows that symptom is the facebook app. Its driving me mad!! I did a hard reset and reformat of all my mem card and phone itself. The problem persists. I even installed older version of the facebook app that didnt have the problem before and now they show the same issue. Here is the video explaining whats wrong.
