In the Android app, the street address font is small, and when I select the station for price entry, the only identifier is the station brand. On the price entry form, would is be possible to also include the station address in a larger font just below the station brand? This would make it more difficult to post to the wrong station when two stations with the same brand are close to each other.

It refers to a tiny font that might be appropriate for a mouse-sized being to read.
(Look it up)

Mice-type-address? What is this? And address typed by a mouse?

This suggestion has been added to the Suggestion Tracking List as a new subject.

I had suggested another cure for the "mice-type address" problem until it was suggested I use the three-finger-tap solution of the iPhone. By turning on the Zoom feature, you could tap with three fingers (which the IOS recognized) and it would zoom the entire screen. Maybe something like this is available on Android. This worked, but after using it for awhile, I, too, would rather have larger type and not have to do anything in the situation with adjacent same-branded stations (on the app screen at least) showing.

The price entry form has the full address, area, state, zip, phone (if available) and picture (if available). From the map if you tap Report Price, you are correct. If you tap Details or use the List View, you get what I stated.
