I have an app that has tiny tiny writing that I need to read and I can't take a hundred screenshots to zoom in to read each one and the developer has yet to fix it but I was wondering if there was a way to have a magnifying thingy on top of this app and move it around the screen to enlarge whatever I can't read in realtime. Any tips? And, the text is not able to be copied or pasted etc.

OS: 4.1 Phone: S3

If your Android version is 4.1 (Jelly Bean) or greater, you can find magnification gestures under your system settings.

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Accessibility
  3. Magnification Gestures

I'm on an S3 on 4.1 which doesn't have magnification gestures. :-( –  verve Feb 26 '14 at 23:34
