Greed: Update for Droid

The Motorola Droid appeared today, and I got a few reports of the fonts in the article list appearing very tiny, almost unreadable.

I actually got an e-mail from someone at Google a couple of weeks ago about this. They were apparently testing apps, and noticed mine looked weird on the Droid. The person who e-mailed me told me how to fix it, but I had forgotten to update a styles.xml file that was still specifying the font size in points instead of "sp"'s. I wasn't able to see any difference on the emulator I'm using here, so I had to rely on a couple of users to tell me how it was looking as I updated Greed and put it on my server to download it.

    Schwiz To be honest, I haven't tried it, but having looked at it, I want to. I've honestly never seen a "What's Hot" item in Google Reader! I'll take a look at that and try to incorporate it in a near-future update.

    Thanks,
    Kelly

    The Fonts are still to tiny to read. When you select Folder View or Feeds you pretty much need a magnifying glass to read them on the Droid. I hope this is an easy fix.

    The font size on the Droid continues to be incredibly tiny thereby making Greed almost unusable. Hope this can be fixed soon. Otherwise looks like a great app.
