    Noobie here, posting for the first time. I searched but could not find an answer to my question:

    Is there any way to make the song titles appear larger? In my car I have trouble seeing the names... (getting old I guess) In an ideal world I'd like a simple, high contrast, large font display...

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Excuse my ignorance but I don't know how to do that (yikes!)

    (I THOUGHT I looked in the settings to see if there was a place to change fonts/sizes... did I miss it? If I did I fell sooooo stupid.)

    I want to change the song title font size...

    Fontswap is an application from Cydia.
    First of all, you will need to have a jailbroken ipod in order to have cydia (cydia is like the appstore for themes, fonts, and other things not on the Apple appstor) which means no jailbreak=no fontswap

    Personally I dont use fontswap because I am used to just ssh-ing the font directly

    I don't know if there's a way to change the size of the font but I think there are some bigger fonts that should be better than the original

    I had looked at font swap and it didn't look like it woul help the song title display... just other fonts (Notes, clock)... unless the song title is part of the "system" font... ?
