I guess you missed the ending: " in accordance with a state of the manipulated size of the UI." Did you not catch the cover graphics. That's the point, changing the size of the text or graphic by a pinching motion. Without Pinch and Zoom, any other associated benefit isn't possible. You can't get around the fact that the pinch and zoom function is the only way for this app to work. So they try to hijack it. End of story.

There is one issue with this article - the claim 1 actually recites "changing a type of information displayed in the UI in at least one stage in accordance with a state of the manipulated size of the UI."
