Accelerometer and pinch to zoom questions?
Okay, coming over from a Nexus S4G to the iPhone 4S has been a lot of fun and I am glad that I made the switch. However, there are some things that I miss about the Nexus. Namely, why in the world would Apple lock down the accelerometer in places like the home screen/certain apps/news articles/the app store??? Have I missed something--is there a setting that is locking this down on my phone or is it just the way that the platform operates? I will admit that I HATE this. The Nexus and my Galaxy Tab both allow the accelerometer to turn the home pages/app drawers/Android Market/and almost every single app and web page.
Anyway, this limitation on the iPhone has made it more difficult to see certain pages which leads me to another question -- is there no pinch to zoom? I know that there is tap to zoom, but that does not always work and when it does, it does not allow for customizing the viewing pane (fine tuning, if you will). Maybe I am not using a gesture correctly or something. If there is another/better way to do either of these things, please let me know. Other than these minor frustrations, I really do love the phone.
