    Default Change Font Size In MobileAddress Book

    I got an iPhone for my mother and one of the things that attracted me to it for her was the large size of the keypad digits. Unfortunately that easy readability doesn't carry into the other apps on the phone. I was wonder how it would be possible to increase the font size on the Mobile Address Book application. There are a couple plists for this app but none that mention fonts.

    What I did find was a binary file in /System/Library/PreferenceBundles/ContactsSettings.bundle/ContactsSettings

    That contains things like this...
    UISuggestionBarWillShow_
    UISystemFont12_UISystemFont14_
    UISystemFont18_UISystemFontBold12_UISystemFontBold 14_
    UISystemFontBold18_UITableCellDefaultFontSize_UITa bleDefaultRowHeigh

    Thanks for any help!

    Look through the preferencebundle and the app itself for references to UISystemFont12_ and/or UISystemFont14 and if you think it is the right one depending on the vague idea you can probably get from the code surrounding it, change the 12 or 14 to 18 and see if it works

    But would the app need it be decompiled to do this? Or do you mean just change the binary within a text editor?

    Can this principle be applied to the sms app? It is I who can't read it properly, my mother refuse to own or use a mobile phone

    If it is possible to apply it to the sms, where could I find its bundle? it was not in
    /System/Library/PreferenceBundles/
    i'm on 1.1.1

    Hi mblaze, I am also interested in changing the font size bigger in the address book, I have changed them to
    UISystemFont16._
    UISystemFont18._
    UISystemFont20._

    but I can't see any changes. Did anyone tried this? I will have a look at other files as well to see if the settings are elsewhere.

    Nah, I was just thinking of a suggestion.
