    On my Android I could pinch and zoom a section of text to my preferred size for reading, double tap and the text would arrange itself so that it fitted across the screen and all I had to do was scroll down, and not left to right and back again continually.

    I can't do this on my iPhone 4S. Is there a way to replicate this?

    Thanks for any info.

    Text Wrap. It's the one thing Android has that we don't that I really want. Unfortunately, there isn't even jailbreak option for it.

    Just yesterday I was wishing I could do that. Unfortunate that iOS doesn't support it.

    Thanks guy's. That's absolutely insane of Apple not to have this feature especially with the iPhone small screen. Surely this will be available in an update in the future?

    I agree. I hope they implement it soon. I'm not sure if they have plans to.

    You might want to check out Atomic Browser. You can increase the font size which helps quite a bit in portrait mode.
