    Am I missing where a setting is located? I can't find out how to make Safari text reflow like all my Android phones have done. If Safari can't do this is there another browser that can? Any help would be appreciated.

    I could not believe it, but there is no way to really do this. I'm using Atomic browser, which lets you set the zoom/text size for individual sites.

    You may already know this but, on some sites, the Safari Browser has a "Reader" button that shows up in the URL Address Bar - click this to enable reader mode where you can adjust the text size and it auto wraps/fits.

    Here's a pic showing a site before and after Reader Mode is enabled - in Reader mode you can use the icons on the top left to adjust the font size.

    Thanks, I actually hadn't noticed that. I just checked all of the sites in my favorites and none of them have this option though. I am just surprised that this is something the iPhone doesn't offer. With the smaller screen size, you would think this would be a must have feature.

    I'd like his too, or a jailbreak tweak to enable it.

    I used to use reflow text on my Evo and Nexus S. However with the great resolution of the Retina display, I don't see myself needing this feature. Yes text is smaller, but it's so crisp that I can read it correctly and it's not blurred as it was on my Android phones w/o zooming.

    I agree that the text is more crisp and easier to read even though it's smaller, still, it can be a pain in the butt to keep swiping side to side while reading an article or a news story. For my almost 50 year old eyes, text reflow is almost mandatory.

    I bet this is something that we will see coming in a future update.

    Yes, it is the most crisp size 3 font I have ever seen....
