Zooming the screen on Android, customizing Google Forms, and more

I love large phone screens.
Most of the reason is I’m not eagle-eyed, so I appreciate the wider area to fit more and larger content. For some time, to read the screen well, I had to adjust the Android settings to increase the system font size. Then I got better eyeglasses and switched back to the default size.
But some apps (hello Google Maps) still show tiny text that’s too small to be legible, even with good eyesight. Enter the accessibility gesture linked here.
Triple-tap to zoom any part of the screen. Try it. You’re welcome.
