    I know their is tweeks and mods out there so your phone doesn't rotate to landscape when you don't want it to....but I was wondering if anyone knows of a tweek where whenever you open Safari, mail or notes it just automatically starts in landscape mode??

    Whenever I open these apps I always firstly just switch them to landscape before doing anything....so if it happened automatically it would be much more convenient.

    Thanks in advance everyone!

    Anyone with something intelligent to say? Like possibly, an answer to my original question?

    Thanks again everyone.

    I certainly see the value in this for some and would be interested to see the response. Thanks for asking the question.

    Well hopefully if there isn't a tweek yet, someone will have the know how to develop one.

    I am sorry I am posting without an answer for you also, but unlike the post above, I do not see a real value in this "mod", maybe that's the reason why No one has ever bothered to make one.

    Seriously, I have the iphone in front of me now, I started "Notes" while holding the phone in portrait mode and then rotated to landscape mode and proceeded to type, but I had to wait about half a second for the app to also rotate to landscape m. to catch up with my quick hands.

    The fact is you are always going to rotate the device physically even if you start off holding it landscape it literally takes less than a second to rotate.

    If that 1/2 second wait is such an issue and inconvenience for you ..than..maan I would love to trade "problems" and "Inconveniences" of day to day life with you. ;)

    I think he wants certain apps to open in landscape mode automatically.

    You can download rotation inhibitor via cydia which will add a toggle to sbsettings that allows you to turn the phones ability to rotate on or off.

    let me clear this up for you guys...

    I use the tweak SBRotator which puts the spring board in landscape, that's why I wanted a tweak to automatically open landscape capable apps in landscape.

    All the rotation inhibitors you mentioned only stop the phone from rotating to landscape, so they offer the opposite of what I inquired about.

    Thanks anyways everyone, I appreciate the comments.

    now that 4.0 is out and there is an option to force the phone into portrait only...is there also an option to force things into landscape only that I'm not seeing an option for somewhere?

    Thanks in advance guys and gals!

    I noticed that too, there is a portrait lock, but landscape lock. Wouldn't have hurt Apple to put in in there.
