View Full Version : 'Simple' Idea for all you programmers

Recently using iBooks I thought about a simple addon that could be very useful for many people.

My idea is, something that would allow an iPad user to 'lock' their view mode (Portrait vs Landscape). If your like me, you like to read while your lying in bed, I found it somewhat annoying trying to keep my iPad in Portrait view while lying on my side, you need to hold it at a 45 degree angle, anything further will switch it to Landscape.

That is when I thought of creating something that could temporarily lock the view mode while reading with iBooks or using any other app.

Myself being pretty much illiterate when it comes to programming, I wanted to share the idea in hopes that someone out there would feel my pain and give it a try.

Please let me know what you think, I am willing to help with the creation if needed.
