Ever since they implimented the landscape in e-mail and sms, it seems like it just does not agree with the rest of the OS.

I will give you a perfect example. Say you are texting in landscape mode and tap the camera icon to the left to insert an existing image, the photo app will come up and you will have to switch vertical again..stuff like this should really be fixed. The user experience is not as seamless if you have to keep switching orientation.

Photo has no excuse not to be in landscape at this point in time...

I noticed that myself, it was irritating. :eek:

Apple should do that. I also think they should have a toggle to turn landscape mode on or off in Settings.

Oh here is another thing. If you go to settings -> general, you will see Bluetooth and then you have to enter another page to turn it on or off...I always wondered why it couldn't have an on/off toggle switch right right there just like location services...???

The iPhone really needs a Favorites pane in the Settings app where you could keep your most used toggles.

Because when you turn Bluetooth on, it begins searching for devices, and allows you to connect to one. It's not like you're just turning it on, usually. You usually turn it on to connect to something. That's why it has a separate screen and not just a toggle. Because it's not just a toggle.
