Don't you hate it when you have your iPad in an apple case, in landscape mode at an angle, launch an app and it is the opposite view (upside down). I know not every one has a apple case, but can't developers factor this in when designing apps? Or maybe there is a setting that I do not know about. One example is We Rule. :mad::mad::mad:

I do not own an iPad yet, but I remember watching the intro video on apple.com and hearing the phrase "there is no wrong way to hold it." Are you saying specific apps only support landscape mode in a single orientation?

I have the same problem for now with one app only.

I think we should blame the developers of this apps.

I have about 40-50 apps and i have problem with only one:rolleyes:

I agree there are only a handful of apps that refuse to adapt to how I choose to hold my iPad. J

This is one of the reasons why I returned the case. I bought the incase convertible jacket so I can use it naked.

Which apps? I don't really understand how these would pass Apple's approval process.. doesn't really adhere to the "no wrong way to hold it" philosophy

Yes. It's very annoying when you use the Apple case. Those apps get deleted immediately. I choose how I work, not some snot nosed punk developer. :D

I agree rdowns. I would give the app a poor review as well -- straight unacceptable.
