    I got my new iPhone 6 (4.7) all set up and everything is working GREAT. :D

    One question about font size. I noticed right away that the fonts seem to be larger in some cases ... like in some other apps. My ToDo app comes to mind. Is that just because the phone is larger? Or is it a master of an update of an individual app to be iOS 8 compliant? I have the text dialed down as before but some fonts are just bigger. Horse type .. no bueno.

    Are some apps optimized for iOS 8 while others are just blown up to fit the screen? Could that be the reason?

    That is what I'm thinking.

    Anybody else see this on your phones. I noticed it right away.

    Yeah, I noticed it right away on some of my apps, too. The apps that do it just need to be updated.

    I thought the Yahoo mail app was optimized for iOS 8 but that is one of the apps where the fonts are kinda big. Not that big a seal but I don't like it anyway. O_o
