Using the tablet app in landscape mode. After the latest update this week, the size of the primary font for texts like movie plot summaries and trivia/goofs, as well as people bios/trivia, has decreased. This makes most text in the app harder to read.

Please revert the font size, or -- better -- give users a setting to choose between e.g. 3 sizes.

You may consider the setting an idea, but the smaller font size is a problem, right here and now.

My eyes aren't that young anymore, and frankly I am astonished and frustrated that this kind of accessibility isn't taken into account when making changes. A change that wasn't even necessary as the old font size was ok.

Thank you for your reply.

Our technical team has confirmed that our latest app version is using Android’s recommended font size, but this can be customized for your device.

Every Android device should have an area in the device settings where the font size can be changed from “Normal.” Typically there are 4 options:  Small, Normal, Large, Huge. 

Please try adjusting this via your device's Display/Font Size settings, and let us know if we can offer any further assistance.

Increasing font size to Large indeed improves readability of text in the IMDb app. It of course also affects all other apps, but I can live with that. Thanks.
