I've created a separate request for iOS here: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/82054-request-improve-readability-small-fonts-on-mobile-without-altering-content/ I've provided a separate statement of the problem and possible solutions. Sometimes developers don't address a problem because they don't like the solution people campaign for, and going back to the original problem helps. Please, jump in with details or other possible solutions if you can think of anything. I'd love to be using Evernote more, but I've been relegated to printing to PDF and using Dropbox rather than Evernote for mobile reading.
Request: Give us an option to improve readability without altering the original article. Problem: Reading clipped articles is difficult on mobile when:the original font size is too smallan ornate font is used that doesn't render well at low sizes and requires more weight for legibilitya low-contrast color scheme was used, which requires more weight for legibilityAttempted workarounds are insufficientAltering the iOS font scale has no effect on the article bodyPinch-zooming does not reflow the article, requiring constant left-right swipingIncreasing font sizes of the content damages the original content, requires desktop use, and does not address needs on various device sizes and dot pitches (eg., iPad Mini vs iPad Mini retina vs iPad Air) Some possible solutions: A "Reader" mode that strips size, font and color formatting. It might use the iOS font scale or an app-configured font scaleAn option that scales only the presentation of either the text or the full article, then reflows the layoutA minimum font size option that forces small fonts to render at a larger size. The minim size might be either an explicit selection or derived from the iOS font scale
+1 here. Clipping articles in Evernote to read later on iPad is fairly difficult with current font sizes. The font is too small for my use on a regular iPad, and with an iPad Mini I have to hold it up to my face. iOS 8 has font scaling preferences which most new apps respect. Sadly if I change the font size there and then force kill and restart Evernote, it only affects the sidebar, not the content. A decent alternative would be some way of scaling individual articles and having them reflow. Two-finger zoom isn't a pleasant solution when one has to keep sweeping the article back and forth. Please don't make me go back to Instapaper for web clipping. It loses content. I'd love Instapaper's viewing options with Evernote's reliability.
