How to Change the Displayed Font Size in iOS 10

Once you reach a certain age, the tiny font used by default on your iOS 10 device might not be so easy to read. Luckily, there’s a quick way to enlarge the font for easier reading.

Just FYI, this change will also affect the text in a number of apps on your device, depending on if they support Dynamic Type. We use the Messages app in this “how-to,” but be sure to also check the other apps to view how things will look there.

  • Open Settings and tap the “General” menu option.
  • Once in the “General” menu, tap the “Accessibility” menu option. (It’s about halfway down the menu.)
  • Now that you’re in “Accessibility”, tap the “Larger Text” menu option.
  • You’ll now see a slider. Sliding the control to the right enlarges the font for your device. (And, as you might guess, sliding it to the left shrinks the font.)
  • You can also toggle the “Larger Accessibility Sizes” switch to “ON” to enable even larger font sizes.

You’ll be able to see the text on the screen change size as you slide the font slider back and forth. You can also check an app like the Messages app to see how the text changes. Play with the slider until the text looks readable.

Google Photos iOS App Now Streams Photos and Video to Apple TV

Google has updated its Google Photos app for iOS to include AirPlay support. This means users can now stream photos and videos to their HDTV via Apple TV.

The new functionality comes nearly two years after the app’s original launch. While users could previously view their Google photos on an Apple TV, it required third-party apps. This marks the first time users can stream their photos and videos directly to an Apple TV via the Google Photos app.

Other features of the app include:

• FREE UNLIMITED STORAGE: Back up unlimited photos and videos for free, up to 16 megapixels and 1080p HD. Access from any device and photos.google.com – your photos are safe, secure, and private to you.

• FREE UP SPACE: Never worry about running out of space on your phone again. Photos that are safely backed up can be removed from your device’s storage in just a tap.

• VISUAL SEARCH: Your photos are now searchable by the people, places and things in them – no tagging required.

• BRING PHOTOS TO LIFE: Get automatically created movies, collages, GIFs, panoramas, and more from your photos. Or easily create them yourself.

• ADVANCED EDITING: Transform photos with a tap. Use intuitive and powerful photo and video editing tools to apply content-aware filters, adjust lighting, and more.

• MOTION STILLS: Advanced stabilization turns your Live Photos into beautiful looping videos or GIFs.

• SMART AUTOMATIC ALBUMS: Automatically get new albums with just your best shots after an event or trip, then invite others to add their photos.

• SEND PHOTOS IN SECONDS: Don’t waste data texting and emailing photos. Instantly share up to 1,500 photos with anyone.

• REDISCOVER: It’s easier than ever to relive your memories. Get collages of photos you took a year ago on this day.

• CAST: View your photos and videos on your TV with Chromecast support.

Google Photos is free, and is available for iOS devices in the App Store. [GET IT HERE]

The best Augmented Reality apps for iPhone

More often than not, the term Augmented Reality still has that elusive, techy ring to it, particularly when brought up in conjunction with Apple’s purported eyewear project. Curiously, many of us have it down as tomorrow’s technology rather than today’s, when the truth is that AR apps have populated the App Store for years.

While some of these apps are admittedly not much more than shoddy tech demos, separating the wheat from the chaff actually produces some really cool apps conceived to boost your business, creativity or simply keep you entertained in novel ways. With the preamble out of the way, here are the best Augmented Reality apps for iPhone available today.

ExactTime shows exactly when your notifications were received

When there are missed notifications on your iPhone or iPad, a summary of what’s awaiting your attention is available in Notification Center. Each notification header displays an estimate of when it was received, but it’s not always as descriptive as you might want it to be.

A new free jailbreak tweak called ExactTime by gilshahar7 helps improve on this tiny frustration with iOS notifications by providing an exact time received in the notification header, rather than just an estimate.... Read the rest of this post here
