IMDB pages are shrunk to half size on any iOS device, regardless of browser or app reinstall.

IMDB screens started displaying half-size on all my iOS devices. Restarting device, reinstalling IMDB app or changing browsers make no difference. OK on OSX or Windows 10 devices. Difficult to read and very annoying.

It does the same thing on my fire. I just use the finger and thumb method and enlarge it. (Expand View) I guess I just am used to it. Mine has up to date software, so it has been that way for quite some time. My cell is larger. But you are correct. The small size is rather annoying.

Hi Gene (and/or Ed),

Please write us back with the following so we may investigate further:

- Which specific iOS devices were affected? (Device version and iOS version)
- Please provide screenshots
- Did you notice this using the IMDb app or the mDot version of IMDb?


Thanks in advance for confirming!
- Steve

I went into settings on my fire. somehow during an update it had reset my font size. Put it back to extra large. So I dont have a problem. Maybe same solution for The i Phone?

The “problem” seems to have resolved itself, coincident with IMDB suddenly reverting to a previous page layout. The trouble seemed to occur when IMDB made a coding change to display a floating “wallpaper” behind selected pages. When that disappeared several days ago displays on my iPads and iPhones returned to normal. It seems like fancy graphics was messing it up. Thanks. Gene
