Have you seen how popular the widescreen mail apps are? I mean, there's like 10 of them! I think Apple must know by now that we like to type in widescreen. It may not be as fast, but it's more comfortable to hold the iPhone sideways because it's easier to grip. I mean, it must be embarrassing for Apple that so many people are downloading Apps to fill a gap that is so simple that Apple should have just included in their own native Mail app. Also, I think SMS should be landscape too. I always hate trying to type in SMS while laying down and I can't freakin' hold the phone to type with 2 thumbs... it's very awkward and uncomfortable and it feels like the iPhone is barely being held onto. When I rotate it sideways, it's much wider and I can grip it with my palms and then tap with my thumbs and it's more comfortable to hold for long periods of time. I can't type as fast on the wide keyboard, but it's more comfortable. So my prediction is that Apple is going to add a widescreen option to their Apps. I actually had a friend come up to me the other day complaining that his iPhone wasn't working right. He said he was trying to send a text message and when he rotated the iPhone, they keyboard didn't move with it. I assured him that his iPhone was not broken, it was supposed to be like that... and he said "Why?" and I didn't really know what to tell him. It's sad that someone has to type their email in a third party app, then send it to Mail in order to email it... 2 steps instead of 1. That should make Apple feel embarrassed that they crippled their software so much.
