Finger Control

Using different finger movements with ‘Zoom’ you can select and magnify your iPhone, iPad or iPod screen.

  • Double-tap three fingers to ‘Zoom’.
  • Drag three fingers around the screen to scroll the view area
  • Do a three finger double-tap and, without taking your fingers off after the second tap, drag them up or down the screen to ‘Zoom’ between 100% and 500%

You can continue using the familiar flick, pinch, tap, and other iPhone, iPad and iPod gestures to run your favourite applications.
