You must be aware of the concept of iPhone or Android’s menu where different apps are neatly organized on a window. PromptUmenu is a handy jQuery plugin which functions in the same way. It’s too easy to use.
The basic concept of this plugin is to offer you the iPhone or Android like experience by designing a window with a menu. For example, if a menu’s page is not enough to fit the icons, you can always access the rest of the icons on the next page of the menu. If you are using a touch-screen mobile handset, you can access the rest of icons by swiping with a finger. Similarly, if you are on a PC, you can switch over to the next page using a mouse. The jQuery plugin is sensitive to the mouse’s momentum and takes the user to the relevant page. The plugin also allows you to decide the number of icons to be displayed on each page as well as the manner by which the items should scroll, either horizontally or vertically.

jFont size is a plugin that allow users with vision problems to easily access the contents of a webpage. This tool helps to increase the font size of a web page. Although readers can change this with the help of standard browser settings, very few people are aware of this function.
The font size buttons are actually added to the standard HTML-CSS and the plugin takes care of the resize part. It is also possible to define a specific area on the web page and only the contents of that element will be altered.
Fit Text is a wonderful jQuery plugin which makes text fit into a pre-defined area. It automatically alters the text size of defined area to fit within the scroll Height value specified. This can be helpful in places where you have a fixed-height layout element that is overcrowded with text.
This tool automatically decreases the font size value of the text until the elements fit into a desired scroll Height value. It ensures a non-broken layout when a page is viewed from a mobile or desktop browser. You can repeat the action on specified area any number of times.
