It would be great if one could change font sizes for lists and articles. The Fonts are IMHO too small. Therefore I keep using News+ with the newsblur addon.

Adjustable text sizes for lists is in our to-do list and coming fairly soon.

Article text sizes can already be adjusted from the menu available while reading - is the largest size (XXL) not a big enough increase for you?

Also, if you increase the text size for your whole device, NewsBlur should respect that increase; let us know if there are any parts that do not.

Thanks for your reply. 
You're right. This is sufficient and indeed I didn't mean the articles font itself but the font for the articles list after chosing a feed from the start screen.

But as I understood for both list (feed and articles) you already have some plans. That's great! Should be ok for me!

thx and kind regards,
Stefan

Not having the possibility to change text sizes for lists is still forcing me to use other apps. Should not be too complicated to implement, on the other hand, IMHO. Do you have an idea when this could be available? Thx, Stefan

This is, in fact, something we finished up just last month.  It will be available in the when the very next Beta makes it to Google Play / FDroid later this month.

This is great news. I installed the Beta a few minutes ago and indeed this works like a charm now. Thanks!

My 51 year old eyes used to be near-sighted. Now having to hold the tablet farther away. Love Newsblur, but this would be my #1 request. Need bigger fonts in the article list as well as the reading activity.

Can you post a screenshot of the largest font you have? I'd like to see what it looks like.

XXL isn't big enough?

Hi, I'm not really sure if you adressed me when asking for screenshots. As I wrote above 2 days ago, for me everything is perfect now. And for me XXL is sufficient
