I am updating my app "Doctor Gout" to extended the list from 200 lists to 400 lists. My app is currently in Google Playstore.
current version, I used Android 5.0 which was no problem as you can see here :


"



Now I am updating my phone (Samsung S5) to Android 5.1.1.  I am running the app using AI companion through my phone I got the app displayed as you can see here :



The display (listview) shows the text fond so small as you can see.  If you need more infor, please let me know.

Please review and give me advice what to do.


Thank you.

This has to do with the new sizing that came into effect a while ago, allowing you to develop apps on teblets, using a higher resolution. 
Unfortunately, fonts are still fixed, this means that you can solve your problem by increasing the fontsize (TextSize attribute of the ListView component). It is 22 by default, if you set it to 44 it will be much better readable.
Cheers, Ghica.

I still think it's a bug...

I think there are a few bugs of this type in App Inventor: things not implemented.
Nice trick though!
I will report this and who knows, someone will fix it for the next release.
(I add a screenshot to show the trick)


Cheers, Ghica.

Boban,

What  nice way to adjust the text size!

We'll play with it and see if we can use this to improve the sizing with listView and other things.

Thanks!!

to simplify Boban's trick I now added a Density method into the tools extension https://puravidaapps.com/tools.php
Enjoy!

Since I had this feature in silver.appybilder I was not in a hurry with it but, I miss having this option in gold.appybilder.

Sorry my bad that I did not ask this earlier
