I would like to use a bigger font size in safari on my ipad.
It would make the words much easier to read.
I know that some apps have bigger print, but there must be others like myself who could do with larger size fonts.
can anyone suggest how other than a new addon app?
developers please note...

Steve Jobs replies to UK developer on iPhone 4.0 font size | Media | guardian.co.uk

Its in iPhone OS 4.0 for SMS messages at least, so iPad will get it when iPad OS 4.0 is released in the autumn. Don't know if its there for other things outside SMS.

Edit: Font adjustment is for Contact, Mail, Messages and Notes.

It'll be much easier if you just comply.

Mail, Contacts and Calendar can have their font sizes increased. As you've noted, other adjustments can be made on an app-by-app basis.

Otherwise, you can use the Zoom feature (Settings>General>Accessibility) to make the text larger.
