The Reminders app in OSX Mountain Lion has no preferences, so I'm wondering if there is any "under the hood" way to increase the font size. It's too small for use on high res displays.

I am assuming that you are referring to Reminders on Mac OSX and not iOS? – bassplayer7 Feb 6 '13 at 17:34
Yes, I have updated the question to reflect this fact. – Jonathan van Clute Feb 7 '13 at 4:31
Did you solve?? – Patrick Jan 23 '15 at 11:00

if there is a hack it is probably related to this one:

Can I increase the default font size for the Notes in Mountain Lion?

then all we need to do is find out the font name

I poked around myself after seeing the Notes hack, but it wasn't directly applicable to Reminders. – Jonathan van Clute Feb 7 '13 at 17:21

Unfortunately, no. There may be a way to hack the app, but I haven't come across it yet. The font is too small for me to use comfortably.
