    Help, Some apps display as TINY and off center

    Hi, I've got a all stock Gnex. Two apps (Math Practice Flash Cards and the CBS Sportsline Mobile App) are suddenly displaying as little tiny images. The app is roughly 1/4" wide, way off center. It's as if the app thinks my Gnex is a large tablet running an app designed for a phone... only MUCH worse. It appears that the entire app is there running but the writing can't be more than a pixel or two per letter. Both of these apps worked fine a little over a month ago. I've tried clearing the cache of the apps. I've tried removing and re-installing the apps. Nothing changes. On one of the apps, you see a brief full screen flash before it shrinks down to tiny. All my other apps work perfectly normal.

    Any ideas? Is this some sort of ICS upgrade display compatibility issue? Did my kids screw up my phone when I wasn't looking? Should I try a reset?

    I have noticed this also on a few apps. It seems as even though the Nexus is a supported device, the resolution is wrong.

    The strange thing is these apps worked fine when I first got my GNex . Wasn't there an ICS update about a month ago? I think that may be what screwed them up.

    (By the way Math Practice Flash Cards is an awesome free app for your kids to practice their adding, subtracting and multiplication facts.)

    Go to Settings - Developer options
    Scroll down till you get to Force GPU rendering and make sure it's UNticked.

    I had the same happening with an app and that fixed it
