I cannot find a real good example or a way to zoom images on intel xdk. On android native language I may create a new layout xml to open the image widely and then zoom it with some extra lib help. Is there a way to make it with xdk using double tap and/or pinch and zoom?
This line in your <head> section will allow for pinch zoom of the entire display up to a 2x factor:
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, user-scalable=yes, minimum-scale=1, maximum-scale=2">
I think the settings should be self-explanatory...
You can try the "hello cordova" demo app to see this work.
