This app extension adds an action to Safari that enables pinch to zoom on web pages that have it disabled. This allows you to use the pinch to zoom or double tap gesture to zoom the web page, even if zooming is disabled by the web page.
Many web pages disable zooming. On such web pages, the pinch to zoom gesture does not work, and there is no way to zoom the page content. This app extension fixes this problem by re-enabling zooming so that you can zoom the web page using pinch to zoom and the double tap gestures.
1. Open Safari
Open Safari and navigate to a web page that has pinch to zoom disabled.
2. Tap Share
Tap on the Share icon in the Safari toolbar to bring up the share activity sheet.
3. Tap More
Scroll to the right of the action icons and tap on the More icon.
4. Activate The Extension
Activate the Enable Zoom extension in the window that appears, then tap Done.
5. Tap Enable Zoom
Tap the Enable Zoom icon, which should now be visible in the share activity sheet.
You can now use the pinch to zoom or double tap gesture to zoom the web page content!

Ratings and Reviews
Great on older eyes
Does a nice job of enabling zoom, with two caveats.
I don't know if it's a iOS limitation or the extensions but you have to activate it for each page even within same domain, in another tab and each session.
Perhaps next version could incorporate those features. I'd gladly give it 5 stars then.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
