I have noticed this quirk since the 3GS era and it has always annoyed me how Apple has not fixed it: Go to text messages in landscape orientation and choose to insert a picture. Notice how the photo album app comes in portrait view so you now have to tilt your phone to select the image. Why didn't they fix this yet? You can view photo albums in landscape view just fine but why when inserting from the text message app in landscape does it default to portrait? I know it sounds like splitting hairs but just something I noticed that makes the iOS experience less fluid. Please get to this Apple, it is such a simple fix and the issue has been there for years now....thanks. Edit: The same issue exists when you try to insert an image into an email message when viewing in landscape orientation.
