View images on phone or tablet
Is there a trick to be able to zoom, and drag, the images of historical records on FamilySearch?
For several years, possibly the whole life of the website, I have noticed this doesn’t work with touch controls for me. I just move to my desktop or laptop to view records then.
However, my mom only does what she can do on her iPad. She loves genealogy but if something doesn’t work right like viewing images she just won’t do it. She’s a 1 or 2 on the tech savvy scale of 1 to 10. If something asks her to enter a password or reset one I usually have to do it for her. She asks me almost every time she wants a link to some collection because she cannot keep track of her links or emails. But she has a strong testimony and is dedicated to this work. These are the types of patrons design needs to account for and the image viewer not allowing zooming or dragging in mobile is just one small issue that keeps such people from doing research. Maybe I’m overlooking a work around but it should be easy for everyone and it isn’t. It isn’t just me is it? Does anyone else find you cannot zoom or drag images with touch controls? By the way, I find some online image viewers do allow this, but just not on FamilySearch.
