With Use System Size enabled, the NewBlur font size is too small in the iOS app.

Please match the font size used by the Apple Mail client

Mind posting a couple screenshots to show me what you mean? I already calibrated the font size so I don't want to change it unless you can show how it's not correct. Also please show the settings you're using both in Settings app and in the NewsBlur settings so I can confirm how you're configured.

Hi Samuel,

Thanks for looking at this.  I've attached two sets of three images taken from my iPhone 6s:

A: Shows that A1 and A2 are taken with system setting Default
A1: NewsBlur at Default 
A2: iOS Mail at Default

B: Shows that B1 and B2 are taken with system setting Default+2
B1: NewsBlur at Default+2
B2: iOS Mail at Default+2

I do have NewsBlur iOS client set to "Use System Size" = Yes.

I have my phone set to Default text size all the time -- except when I use NewsBlur, when I have to set it to Default+2 to make it more legible.

To my eyes, the font size of NewsBlur at Default+2 looks about the same as the Mail client at Default.

Regards,
Garland

I also want to suggest at the same time -- also for the sake of usability, readability, and accessibility --  that the UI on mobile devices move to black and white instead of shades of the current fad in the UX world of shades of grey.  Greys are just one more thing that make the UI hard to read.  Look at the big difference in contrast in the screenshots here between Newsblur and the iOS Mail client.
