Thoughts on design: SimpleNote for iOS 4.4.2

Interface design
When SimpleNote 4.4.2 for iOS was released, one of the updated features was a refreshed user interface. Instead of a baked-in font, the app now uses San Francisco, the native iOS system font. While a change in typography was welcome, I immediately noticed two things. Both the tracking and line height were too tight, as least for these aging eyes:

By opening up both the tracking and line height ever so slightly, we end up with a more pleasant experience. These changes are very minor and subtle, but now the text is much more readable, especially in large paragraphs.
