    Hi, hope someone can help, I have an HTC Desire S phone and I need to know if there is an app I can download to make things bigger on the screen, my eyesight is not as good as it used to be.

    Thanks Betty:)

    Betty, welcome to the AndroidForums!

    There's something in your phone's settings that might work for you (haven't tried it myself, though):

    menu -> Settings -> Accessibility -> Accessibility checkbox and the Zoom Mode checkbox

    Not sure if that's the ticket, though, since I found it in this thread:

    http://androidforums.com/android-applications/9749-screen-magnifier.html

    But it does discuss a few other options, too.

    Unfortunately, I searched the Android Market and I don't see anything obvious that actually magnify's the screen (there's apps that will magnify things through the camera, but that's not what you need).

    Good luck and glad you signed-up with us here at AF!
