Needing to zoom in for reading text implies that it might have been set poorly from the outset. I am looking for something like the one used by the "newspaper clipping generator" at fodey. Touch interactivity presents an opportunity to make complex data more interesting and easier to understand.
Leave the zooming features for things like slideshows, videos, or other kinds of interactive content.
Designed by Christian SchwartzErik Spiekermann, and Sowersby, it is no-nonsense yet novel, rarely seen by American readers. A nice popup in Founders Grotesk. Totally true, I presumed.

This is part of a bigger and very different discussion I would love to have, for which this is probably foont the right place: Did you notice there is no sense of flow, or continuation while reading an article? Founders Grotesk, as cool and striking as it might be, has very closed aperture which makes it not particularly suitable for reading sizes and length, especially on the screen.
Why does text in a digital magazine or newspaper need to be scalable? It's merely respecting the reader and carefully choosing which interactive choices they have. Tiempos shares the rather closed forms and tightness of Founders Grotesk.
