iPod with the touch screen bother. Please help.

I was playing a game called 'Logo Quiz' and I touched the left hand part of the screen and the game got magnified. Can anybody help me to de-magnify the screen to make the game playable again. Thanks.

Touch the right side? Normally you'd pinch the screen to de-magnify, but you may be left with nothing but to read the Logo Quiz instructions...

Touch the right side? I have tried it.
Normally you'd pinch the screen to de-magnify....Tried it and it does not work.
The zoom funcion is disabled in Settings.
The three finger tap also does not work.

Thanks for the reply. It is my sons iPod and I was playing with it. He is in bed at the moment. He may be able to sort it in the morning.

It sounds like a game bug. If all else fails, it's easy enough to delete the app and then re-download it, which should result in the settings returning to default.

Check the other screens such as the main menu. Are they magnified? If they are then it is a problem with the iPod. Otherwise it is just with that application.

I think it must be a fault with the app or the user. I did try to google my way out of it but finding which words to google was a problem.

Thanks all.
