Maybe everyone has always known this and I'm the only retard.

I've long despaired at the inability to pinch or zoom in the iphone and Android app, disallowing any type of reading of the comics posted here unless you have a tablet. 

Alternately, you can go to the browser, but navigation is just too clunky and annoying to go through threads.

EXCEPT

You can go to the "GeekGround Comics Posted" thread, which should be in everyone's subscriptions, and then click on the link to the comic you want to read from there and

PRESTO

It launches the page in browser format where you can pinch, zoom, rotate and scroll to your heart's content.

Apologies if everyone already knew this and I'm the only idiot.

Dead Again -

Is it because when you open from the "GeekGround Comics Posted" thread, it opens the thread up in "no frames"?

Not sure if that's a dumb question. I don't know anything about smart phones.

No it's because it launches the thread from the browser instead of the app. The app is restrictive in terms of navigating the page. Phone Post

You can zoom inside the UG app on an iPhone. Settings -> general -> accessibility -> turn zoom to on Phone Post

Never knew this way either. I just switched to an S3 though, so I'm not sure how I'd do it there.

Still have my old iPhone though, so cool to know. voted up.

I think another alternate route is to bookmark the Geekground Comics posted thread in your browser, which will yield the same results.
