    Portrait to landscape when you rotate your iPad. Some apps don't rotate.

    Oh. I didn't know that. Mine all do. I don't have that many, though.


    Thanks!

    It's actually part of the UI guidelines that they rotate, if practical. I know of a few that don't, but I don't think they'd work as well if they did either.

    I have 2 apps that are portrait only and really, it doesn't bother me at all. Its like the Speedo theory that says just because a Speedo comes in your size doesn't mean you have to wear one! And just because an iPad can change from portrait to landscape doesn't mean your app has to!

    But HATE is such a strong word. Isn't there enough hate in the world already? Can't we all just get along?

    But what I hate even more than apps that don't rotate are people that delete images from their Photobucket albums then don't got back and edit their signature! What's up with that?

    I don't necessarily hate apps that do not rotate. . . .
    as long as they DO operate in landscape mode
    .

    Apps that don't rotate do feel like shoddy, or incomplete programming, to me.
    and often they are really iPhone apps that CAN run on my iPad.
    (usually in grainy, doubled resolution.)

    • Unless I feel I just MUST have the capability of a non-rotating app, and cannot find another to fill that need, I will not purchase, or install it.
    • I find I avoid using apps that I do have, that do not rotate.
    • I know it lowers the ratings I give those apps.
    I don't know whether that might matter to app devs, or not.
