Re: Switching FlickType between portrait and landscape when "Lock rotation"is switched on

Chuck Dean

I used to keep the orientation locked because I would hold my iPhone while reading and I would accidentally shift from portrait to landscape mode, thus stopping the reading. I since found it easier to listen through a Bluetooth headset and leave the iPhone sitting on a table.

Also I find the control center much easier to get to than years ago, so if I need to lock the orientation, its not a big deal.😎

Just my thoughts,

Btw I typed this with my iPhone in landscape mode using my thumbs, which I find the fastest way of typing with flicktype.👍

I have never used landscape mode. Maybe I should try it, but I don't see this as a necessity.

I would love it, I hate to have my orientation unlocked so unlike Chuck I simply won't use Flicktype in landscape mode even if I'd maybe like to do so at times.
I know what is suggested can definitely be done because the Ring Video Doorbell app, for example, also switches to landscape mode when I enable Lifeview or if somebody rings the doorbell and I tap on the notification to answer the ring.

Hi Scott,
Thanks for the suggestion.  This is not normally possible, so we would need to implement some kind of workaround. Let's ask the group if they'd also find this feature useful since it will take some work.

Do others in the group feel like this would be useful for you as well?
