    Android 3.2 App Zoom/ Fit to Screen

    Can you manually activate the app zoom or fit to screen? I enjoyed the Text Mix game on my Droid X, but when I installed it on my AT, it was pitifully small, so I deleted it. Since I got the 3.2 update last night, I reinstalled it, but there was no zoom or fit to screen option in the notification bar.

    I am having trouble finding that app in the market, even when searching on market.android.com to test it out.

    I kept all the apps that showed up small and since the 3.2 upsate they are all fit to the screen now. I really only use the zoom for kik messenger becuase it makes the letters bigger.

    Basically, the rule of thumb is that if it looks fine in HC, don't change the zoom. Sure, you can change Opera Mobile to Zoom to Fit, but then you have less web page room to look at the page. It should really only be used if the app is small on the screen. I only use it for Speed Test.

    If the app claims it supports tablet-sized screens then the zoom to fit option won't appear.

    Some apps are not designed for tablet size screens but look fine. Angry Birds is an easy example. It looks like it was made for a tablet size screen but the zoom option still appears in the task bar. I did trying zooming and it did not look good at all.
