    Also making sure you are using the correct viewport meta tag.

    im using
    meta name=”viewport” content=”width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no” />

    >**maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no” **

    No, no, no. Please don’t do that.

    Why wouldn’t you want people to scale? We don’t all have perfect vision you know. There are billions of potential visitors who wear glasses and you just p*ssed them all off.

    However, without a link we can’t test it for you on our devices and that’s especially true for me given the above…:)
