    Especially with Appe's iOS-Devices, we have to deal with varies displays with different resolutions and different ratios.

    Free Zoom-Level ratios would allow to build 1 GUI with dynamic layouts to deal with all kinds of iPhones AND iPads.

    … and a cheat sheet for display aspects:

    iOS-Displays                                                Zoom-Levels

    iPad                                                              not tested yet

    iPad mini      7.9“          1536x2048            100% √

    iPad Pro      12.9“          2048x2732            not tested yet

     

    iPhone 4        3.5“          640x960              50% √

    iPhone 5S      4“              640x1136              50% √

    iPhone 6        4.7“          750x1334              50% with gray bar x [ => –64%: 1152 1536 (960 1704]

    iPhone 6 +    5.5“          1080x1920            not tested yet

    iPhone 6S      4.7“          750x1334            50% with gray bar x

    iPhone 6S +  5.5“          1080x1920          not tested yet



    One could even imagine FM detecting devices and set designated Zoom-Level automatically
