If you have mild to severe vision challenges - where are my reading glasses when I need them - and you’re browsing the web on your phone, you probably recognized that
• Text flows off the screen to the sides when zooming above certain levels, requiring you to move the page from left to right in order to see what’s on it.
• Mobile web pages like search engine results, news sites and many others don’t even let you zoom in, so you have to try reading the tiny print size.
Instead of constantly looking for your reading glasses or using an off-page Reader option, now you have the best solution right at your fingertips:
BigFONT takes a different approach to text zooming and vastly improves the web experience through a new page-zoom feature with text reflow and word wrap, right on the original web page. Enjoy large-size text that stays inside your display, no matter how big it is. This eliminates left-to-right scrolling and allows for easy reading even at the highest zoom levels.
Best of all - you can even adjust the text size of mobile web pages to a comfortable level for an enjoyable reading experience.
Set up different custom zoom levels for your Safari browser from “just a little bigger” all the way to “giant” print size and activate them as needed by simply pushing a button.
This will make the print bigger on most web pages (some websites don't support font scaling) and keeps pictures and other elements in place to preserve the visual experience.
Read labels, menus and everything else with tiny print. Turn your iPhone into a magnifying glass with zoom levels up to 8-times the original size. (3GS and higher)
When looking for long periods of time at a computer screen at a fixed distance, our eye muscles and lenses lose their strength and flexibility, causing major vision problems.
Experts suggest taking regular breaks and looking at distant objects. (Not easy in most offices)
Relax your eyes by looking at the included 3D-stereogram images, which focus your vision at a point deep behind the actual picture. This is like looking at a distant object, so your eye muscles adjust the lenses, relaxing and exercising your eyes.
Time for new glasses? Based on your current GPS position, your iPhone will show you recommended Optometrists with satisfaction ratings and map directions to get you there quickly (works in selected places).

BigFont gets the job done
I'm not sure about the other users but Big Font worked well on all the sites I used including Wikipedia, Reuters and others. It is especially in tune with mobile devices such as the iPhone, Droid and iPad. I suspect the author will come out with improved versions as time goes on. Worth the money for those of us with vision challenges.
works with my iPhone 6. while the steps are a bit tedious to get to work with safari, it gets the job done. the primary reason I'm giving this app 3 stars is because the app has access to my camera by default. I'm pretty sure I didn't accept access. please remove this behavior and it'll get 5 stars. otherwise, I cannot recommend this to my friends.
This app is terrific! I used the tutorial and found it to be brief and clear; the voice-over slowly walked me through the various set up steps and uses. You can get started right away on many sites and social media. Thank you for creating this app!
