    5800 Application suggestion

    In my opinion, the phone cannot know for sure when I want to use the portrait mode and when the landscape mode. I think there should be a button for it so the user can choose which one to use and when. The application could add a 'switch to portrait/landscape' option to the drop menu that opens by pressing the XpressMusic button -> http://mobce.com/wp-content/uploads/...ouchscreen.jpg

    I think it would be a great app that makes the phone much more easy to use. Hope someone will do it and put it to Ovi :)

    Palm had just that. and then came Apple, and everyone went batshit about "da motion sensah".

    Blame it on Apple, not on us!

    Or even better, support both automatic and manual choices.
    So the user can select "Automatic orientation", or "Fix to landscape", or "Fix to portrait"...
    Most well-thinking apps should build that in at the app level.

    To switch automatic landscape/portrait mode:

    "Settings" -> "Phone" -> "Sensor settings" -> "Turning control" -> "Auto-rotate display"
