    In an handful of apps (dropbox, email client, pdf reader), I can't seem to find a way to use the full screen with the open document in landscape mode - the file browser/inbox/whatever is also taking up 1/3 of the screen. Only in portrait mode does it disappear. Is there a way to do this in landscape mode?

    There is no way to force this unless the particular App(s) support it.

    I shrunk it down so it wouldn't fill up the whole screen, but here is a DropBox screen shot from my iPad --

    I don't know why yours won't work.

    Sorry - you shrunk down what - the file explorer? How did you do that?

    What I posted was a screen shot of my iPad with the DropBox app opened in the landscape mode showing that it will fill the entire screen.

    I made the screen shot smaller than the actual screen shot from my iPad so it would not take up as much room in my post.

    But in your image, the dropbox file explorer takes up about 25-30% of the screen. I'd like to be able to hide the explorer

    I am sorry, I misunderstood your question. Apparently there is no way to hide the file explorer. But there is an option to open the file in another app, like GoodReader, from DopBox.

    One the other side of the same coin, you can also open your DropBox files directly from GoodReader.

    Thanks. I have iannotate which is great for editing pdf files (and you can use the full screen), though I don't always want to edit something I open. So I guess there's no quick fix.
