I just exchanged my BlackBerry for an iPhone. Not sure if I'm happy with the trade yet, but it's such a different device that I'm settling in and giving it a fair shot. My first question is this: when I am browsing on Safari or reading some e-mails, I can reverse-pinch to make the text big enough to read, but then I have to move the page all around to read the text. It's enough to make me dizzy. Surely this is not the way it was intended? How do I get the text to fit on the screen without all this manipulation? Similarly, the text on some Web pages (eg Google Reader) is microscopic, and I can't find a way to increase its size. I feel certain Apple wouldn't have neglected this: can anyone enlighten me? Thanks!
Unfortunately the iPhone browser works differently than other smartphones. On many other smartphones you can setup the browser to "fit to screen" which collapses all of the columns into one long page to reduce the left-to-right scrolling. The iPhone's browser doesn't have this functionality.
What the other have said here is true. You and pinch or double-tab to enlarge a "table" area of the page only.
