When Nivi pointed out on Twitter that Better didn’t have Dynamic Type support, it went to the top of my fix list.
. Would be great if it supported Dynamic Type so I can read updates inside the app
Dynamic Type is pretty cool. You can go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Larger Text on your phone, and either grow or shrink your preferred reading size. Apple will then apply this reading size to every Dynamic Type-supported element across iOS. It’s a little bit like the default or minimum font size setting in a web browser.
(Left: standard Settings. Right: Larger Dynamic Type.) Dynamic Type is known as “Larger Text” in the Accessibility menu. You can instantly see the text resize in the Settings. You can also enable “Larger Accessibility Sizes” to make the text even bigger.
What’s even cooler is that Dynamic Type also works in Safari on iOS.
Left: the Google DoubleClick tracker page on Better.fyi without Dynamic Type enabled. Right: the same page but with a larger text size selected
As I’ve mentioned before, Better’s interface is mostly web views. They’re local to the device, but they’re HTML and CSS like you’d find on any web page. So Dynamic Text support needed to be added to the CSS.
