How to Increase the Font Size of your Nokia N9 (Update)

Nov 12, 2011

Update: My messaging application has been crashing after I increased the font size, so I had to flash back in order to read some text messages I could not open. I recommend you proceed with caution… Other apps seem not affected. I was having a great time with N9 but for one thing: the font sometimes became too small to read while walking, talking, or...

I have been playing with my Nokia N9 for the last couple of days, and I have discovered some cool things I think people will appreciate.

Editorial: Nokia Needs SwipeUI on Windows Phone

Nov 4, 2011

Nokia has a wonderful thing going on in the Nokia N9: you swipe to exit apps, and double tap to wake up the phone. This is the kind of thing that really makes the N9 a pleasure to use; it’s so addictive I was swiping the screen of the Lumia 800 as soon I started using it.
