This is by design and is under user control in MobileSafari. When the user rotates the phone the text becomes larger. When the user pinches/squeezes the web page the page zooms in and out. I can make your page so large that only a couple of lines of text appear on screen.

This is the same for all web pages. Why do you think this is a problem?

I just did two things to solve my problem.

1. I added

var currentWidth = 0;
function fnmove()
setTimeout(updateLayout, 10);

function updateLayout()
if (window.innerWidth != currentWidth)
currentWidth = window.innerWidth;
var orient = currentWidth == 320 ? "profile" : "landscape";
document.body.setAttribute("orient", orient);
window.scrollTo(0, 1);
}, 100);

setInterval(updateLayout, 400);

script to my application .

2. added <meta name="viewport" content="maximum-scale=1.0,initial-scale=1.0,minimum-scale=1.0"/> tag in my application .

it is working fine now .

A lot of thanks for your replies.
I hope it will solve your problem.
