Is there a way to change the font and display size for ONLY one app?

    I'm a big fan of Persona 5 so I downloaded a messenger app that looks just like the one in the game. It looks great, but the font and display are way too small. I tried going into my settings and changing the font and display size, and while that made the app look great (exactly like in the game!), it made everything else WAY too big. This is what my home screen looks like now, it made my phone look like it belonged to someone going blind.

    So is there any way that I can change the font and display size on that specific app to be bigger while still keeping everything else at default size? I already looked through the settings for the app and there isn't an option in there. Thanks in advance!

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    That's something that would generally need to be built in to the app. If the app doesn't support changing the font size independently of the OS then you'll see exactly what you're seeing.

    I'd suggest reaching out to the developer of the app in question to see if they might consider adding an option to increase the font size.
    svim and Hadron like this.

    Can't. It got taken off the Play Store for copyright reasons so I downloaded the APK online.

    Well there's your answer, I'm afraid. :(

    Hi, have you found a solution to the problem? It seems to me that the problem here is in the application itself. Try to delete it and download it again, maybe there is a new version with font settings. I am familiar with the problem with fonts. I recently downloaded a forum app to my phone, in which the font was terrible. Fortunately, I was able to upload my own font, which I did. I found a universal font for myself here https://upfonts.com/knockout-font-straight-outta-compton-font/, it compensates for my poor eyesight.
