There is an archived post asking about disabling Android zoom controls:
I couldn't reply to that post, so had to create this one.
I just ran into this, and solved it within the HTML of the webview itself. Here's the line to add in the head portion of the HTML:
<html> <head> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no"> </head> <body> Stuff here that you do not want zoomed. </body> </html>
This only works if you are in control of the HTML - so either a locally served file, or a remote file from your server. If you're displaying remote HTML from a 3rd party, you will still need to wait for the webview to be updated.
If you're adding this, don't forget to put it in the head section.
