I am using the beta Mondo app on an iPad (until the Android version comes along and I can use my phone).
At the bottom right of the app there is an ‘1X’ in a circle, which actually mean ‘resize to half the size’. After resizing, the ‘1X’ changes to ‘2X’ to reverse the change.
- Why did Mondo have to make up another method to indicate resizing / full screen? There are plenty of existing resize/rescale/full icons in use in video apps.
- But isn’t it un-necessary to change the button text/icon, as I think it is obvious what the scale/screen usage is. Maybe having a single icon that means ‘resize’ for both scales would suffice, as that would avoid the confusion whether ‘1X’ means change to 1X magnification, or you are viewing at 1X magnification. I think it doesn’t add information, so simplify it.
