Neologizing on a Friday Afternoon


adj. (On the analogy of seasick, carsick, etc.) Describes the slight vertigo one experiences in having to read on an iPhone (or other small-screeened device) by zooming in and panning around a screen of text that doesn’t auto-adjust to fit the screen.

Usage: “Ugh. I’m feeling iSick.”


  1. Thanks, Danny, I’ll have to try it. If it exports text better than Acrobat Pro does, then it’ll be a very good thing to have. Still, though, I’ve got a lot of articles that are pdfs, but scanned images instead of texts. They’re okay to read on a desktop or laptop, but no good for an iPhone or smaller screen.
