Not exactly why this is happening. I'm using IMPACT font, size 20. Looks perfect when viewing on Chrome, but when I view on my S5, via cocoonjs compiler, the font changes, it's much smaller. Why and can I fix this. Thx. I'm thinking the fix is to use a sprite font.. not sure tho.

I would recommend using spritefonts instead. Then you know exactly how the fonts will look on all devices. Because web fonts are like you see not always consistant. So I always use sprite fonts :D

Impact font is not a web safe font either which means your mobile device is unlikely to have it installed and a default font will be used instead.
There will be ways to use a custom font though I've not experimented with this yet (so long as you have permission to use it too).
