READING ON A SMALL SCREEN

A reader said she was intrigued by the Kindle Fire’s ability to switch to a “reading pane” view, with enlarged text and the graphics and ads removed from any website. She’d been straining her eyes trying to read anything on her Samsung Galaxy S2 phone.

But she doesn’t have to buy a Kindle to enlarge a page on her phone. The free “Readability” app gives you larger type without all the ads. There’s also “Pocket,” (formerly “Read it Later.”) If you don’t like either of those, you can go into your phone’s settings and increase the font size.

  1. How do you increase the font size on the screen. I didn’t realize I had changed it and surely didn’t want to but it is coming up about an TNR 8 and I can’t clearly see it.

  2. Hi Robbie: If you’re talking about the look of the whole page, here’s how: In Windows, hold down the “Ctrl” key and tap the plus sign to enlarge. To make everything smaller, hold the Ctrl key and tap the minus sign. On the Mac, use the Cmd key instead.
