    So I just bought a new Motorola Atrix. I love all of the hardware, expect for I have one problem with it. I have below average eye sight, and it strains my eyes to look at the screen. I'ts never ever been a problem when any other mobile device, but with this one, it is. Is there an app that will make ALL of the system fonts bigger or change the resolution or something along those lines? I really need an app to do this, or I'll be returning it and getting an Inspire/HD7S/iPhone.

    Thank you!!!

    Not sure if this would help.

    Is that for ADW or ADW Ex? I can't find 'Icons' under UI settings in ADW. There's 'Icon highlights' but that's all.

    Settings > Accessibility > *Check* Accessibility Box > Zoom Mode

    Assuming the Atrix has that feature like my Droid X does.

    This creates a movable box that you can position over text and then zoom in/out using that window.

    I don't know if anyone has written an app for the Atrix yet, but another option is to change the pixel density which will increase text size throughout the entire phone.

    Yea, I don't have that option unfortunately. :(

    Thanks for the help though.


    For everyone else: Does ADW EX have an option to make the system wide font bigger? I can't seem to find an answer and don't want to spend $5 if it does nothing useful.

    Yes, that looks great! I wonder how well it works with 3rd party apps...

    I guess I need to root my Atrix. Is it hard to root it?
