I developed BigNews for my father, as his eyesight had deteriorated making reading news papers or the web difficult. I bought him an android tablet, but even with pinch and zoom, menus remained small and fiddly. BigNews presents a website as menus and lists of stories, all in the same easily adjusted text size for easy reading. You can even adjust the spacing between lines if you have difficulty separating adjacent lines. On wifi or with a fast mobile connection, BigNews will try to pre-load menus and stories on the chosen website. The adjustable text size makes for comfortable reading, and the pre-load means it can be enjoyed on the move. Pictures within stories are presented alongside or beneath with a choice of text only, split text and pictures or pictures only display in portrait or landscape and with independent scrolling regions.
