What would be the ideal Font Texture Size for iOS?

Hi,

Does anyone have any suggestions on what the font texture size should be, so it's still clear on iPhone and iPad?

Thanks

Hi,

I think it depends on how large you want the text on screen to be.

I have found for clear normal size text that you need at least:

512x512 for phones
1024x1024 for tablets

Also if you are using latest shiva editor then you need to swap out the texture compression tool:
