LargeType is a simple tool that lets you quickly display a message in very large text using your browser. It was inspired by Quicksilver's Large Type feature. Use the offline webpage version or the Universal iPhone/iPad app.

Storing messages for later use

The iPhone app does not provide this feature but a little effort with the webpage version makes it easy.

  1. Go to
  2. Type in your message and press enter
  3. Use the "Add to Homescreen" feature of Mobile Safari and save the page to your home screen
  4. Anytime you want to show the message again just tap the icon and the page will load with that message

The page works offline and to save space you can group a bunch of common statements into a single folder. Let me know if it works for you.

Comments I've received about Large Type

I use your Large Type app to communicate with a deaf person who has short term memory loss. ... The app has been very useful, and I like it. Thanks.
