add aesthetic options (color/font/etc.) for the dashboard
So far I have quite enjoyed using HootSuite, but I would like to see some options available to change colors and fonts, basically the "look and feel" of the dashboard.
Have a font setting for all streams or/and for each stream column
With the new release of HootSuite 5 today, you can now choose between 3 different design themes with different colors, fonts etc.
Thanks for your feedback and let us know what else you’d like to see.

Just zoom in on the browser. Did the trick for me
My wife is visually impaired but she lives on twitter during the day for business purposes. She has to use tweetdeck because of the font options but we really would prefer hootsuite. Improving access for those on desktop devices would be very helpful.
it is just a font size, cmon hootsuite. I just switched from Tweetdeck to you hoping i have an option to increase the font size. Send me your code I will add that one line in css file in a minute :)
Please increase font size or give us option to do that . Will be very helpful.

combined with my other vote to allow custom color settings to make the UI more readable/useable.
The font size needs to be larger on all devices. A preference for font size would be nice, but a larger default would be a good start.

Hootsuite is worthless without being able to increase font size.

This request should be a top priority for Hootsuite for Android. Can barely read it on my 3.7" HTC Desire! All the main Android apps including Tweetcaster, Twitdroid, Tweetdeck offer this option. Add at least three levels of font sizes. Even better would be to allow us to input the real font size in pixels!
I need to make the font bigger otherwise it's not very useful. Please have a font setting!
Love to see theming. Make those themes not only about aesthetics but also about functionality. Everyone uses hootsuite differently with other information needs. Focus on those different user groups and create a theme for every group.
Take me for example. I'm in numerous social networks and are quite active. I also follow quite a lot of people. for me it's crucial to see as much updates within one screen. Scrolling will make me scroll forever because of the countless updates. So a smaller font, making navigation as minimalistic as possible. But also make the posting of updates visually almost non existent will create quite some space for content.
If you like me to make some mockups to illustrate, just ask.

I know a few people here who don't use it just because they like the look of other application even though it doesn't have as many options!

The hootsuite branding and coloring are distracting and take way to much room - I want more viewable area!!!
if you do make custom themes, i'd just create a few themes, like how twhirl does it.. but not leave it up to the user to super customize it..

Waht manuel15 said, that's what the competition is already doing!
Interestingly, the addition would already read tweet's hides or so blurred to read all know that already, and new or those who have not read any visual element to distinguish them, since the current does not very effective in

would be interesting to see the pictures of podwer or twipic similar pages directly from hootsuite currently viewing a very small preview, but the possibility of larger size would be very well received, just as with the YouTube videos, enabling change the appearance of the page (colors, font size etc.
No way to lock the colors because for color blindness people. This app uses so bad color combination for them. It must be changeable least. Especially, number display for text are make numbers bigger and change red when over 140 but that color not works. It must be shown as 140=0 and - for over value.

Font size! It's hard to read tweets from a distance and the bottom "toolbar" prevents zooming to be useful.
