We like the way it looks! ;)

There's a subtle strategy at play here. Zooming in a little prevents you from looking at too many things at once.

HEY's size and layout and approach limits the amount of things in your field of vision and on your mind at any one time. It may not be for everyone, but neither is any particular layout. I think it's a fresh take, but I'm biased of course!

Also, iOS is pushing an update shortly which lets you adjust sizes based on your system settings.
