The mobile web support for small form factor displays already exists as I am able to access the web app using the browser on my iPhone. However, the iOS application does not support rotating the device into landscape mode. I am requesting support for landscape mode be provided in the application, so that we can access more options and see more of the view.
This has been requested by a few members in the past, and I’ve personally done my best to push this suggestion.
However, that wouldn’t possible any time in the near future, and the workaround I was recommended is to use Infinity on mobile web browser (using it, you can rotate your phone, and more options will show up).
Hmmm. Seems odd for such a small change. If the source code was open source, I would make the change for you
If I’m correct and remember it’s not due to the code, it’s due to the upper management decision not to make mobile app too ‘clumsy’ or cluttered.
I’m 100% sure that the team has tested the both use cases, and chose the better one.
Sorry but I think “upper management” needs to listen to their customers . Adding landscape does not force people to use it. It allows people who choose to use it to have a better experience. Allowing it in the mobile web experience runs counter to not allowing it in the app.
