Ratings and ReviewsSee All
This app does what it says. I like it. The main reason I needed it was that in the Apple News app not all articles would adjust to my larger font. Still in the apple news app the font extensions don't show up when you use the share icon. You have to use the open in Safari extension first. But is still easy To use.
Works, but can be improved
It works as described. Note that it doesn't remember the last font size, so if you refresh or go to next page, you'll have to adjust font size again which is inconvenient.
Please make this work for Safari reader application
When I downloaded this I can't my fingers crossed that this application would allow me to increase the font size in the reader function for Safari iPad application. Unfortunately it does not and I sent a note to the company asking if they could fix this. If they do, I will give this application five stars.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
