The iMore app now comes with added landscape support!

The all new iMore app for iOS 7 launched recently, and while the team worked incredibly hard to bring you all of the awesome there were a couple of bits that had to be left out. One such feature was a landscape viewing mode that we know a lot of you wanted, and the good news is with version 3.1, it's back!

Anything you might want to do in landscape mode such as reading articles, watching videos, text entry etc is now all possible in version 3.1. It works great, and we know you guys are going to love it!

We've also got fixes for a couple of annoying bugs, because no-one likes those. One we received a lot of feedback on was the app icon not showing properly when downloaded onto an iPad. There's a fix implemented for that and so hopefully now you should be able to see the amazing new Marc Edwards designed icon in all its glory on your iPad. There's also a fix for crashes that were seen when using the Control Center playback controls in iOS 7.

The latest version is now live in the App Store, and we really appreciate all the time and attention you give us, and we want to give you best app we can in return. So. download it, try it out, and let us know what you think! And if you have feedback or bug reports, drop into the forums thread linked below where we'll continue to monitor everything.

Just updated the app. Nice work on the update. Now we can get a better view of images and videos posted here.

One thing, as I was typing this comment then went from portrait to landscape mode, I noticed that the right side my screen is just blank and what I had typed on the left side still looks as if it's on portrait mode. And, I can't see the bottom part of what I typed as well.

Good work guys.
Now the only thing missing is the iPad version.

dgrass90 says:

I'll add to the noise and agree on that. I don't want to take away from the fact that I think you all have a fantastic job on the iphone app and the site has looked great since the whole mobile nations integration, so I don't mind at all accessing the posts from safari on my ipad.

Very nice guys; just got an iPad Mini Retina and found that you don't have a dedicated iPad app? One coming out soon??

Nice to see the icon is fixed for us iPad users, but of course, an iPad UI would be key. Granted, I'm sure the new landscape support is just the natural progression towards a Universal app.

*screams like a schoolgirl* pull to refresh works beautifully in landscape!! That was my only gripe with 2.0, now it's fixed in 3.0. You guys are awesome, new app is awesome, love it!

What a great enhancement! Would love to be able to adjust the font size and of course a full iPad version but this helps a bunch in an app I use daily. Thanks!!

One gotcha found in the new release, if you rotate back and forth within an article and go back to the menu, you can sometimes see the layout for the landscape sticks in the image slider at the top. I am able to reproduce it pretty easily.

Cheers. @Scatabrain

Richard Devine says:

Can you drop this into the forums thread linked into the article please :) Helps us keep track of everything! Thanks!

Scatabrain says:

Thanks Richard. I should have noted - already posted there with a with screenshot.

Yes that would be good, us iPad users would be thankful, I have an iPhone also but most of the time I'm on iPad Air.

Bless you, iMore. I'm an all landscape all the time kinda guy and this update is very helpful to me. Typing comments is much faster for me now.

I will second the bug report, however, that typing comments while in landscape still needs some improvement. Text doesn't spread across the width of the screen and the screen doesn't allow you to scroll.

Keep up the good work!

I updated my iMore app before I made my kids' lunch for school this morning... Is that negligent?
xP
... The "iMore Account" page on my iPhone still doesn't display correctly... It's still too beeg for my screen and there's no "Back" button, only "Cancel". :(

The beauty of auto download. Woke up, grabbed the iPad, saw the blank icon was now the iMore icon. Loving landscape on the iPad. Great stop gap until it is iPad native.

Great update iMore team. Icon looks much better on my iPad. Suggestion for future updates: push notification when there is a reply to one's comment would be helpful (and if course the ability to stop following a thread to end the notification) so it's easier to respond to or quickly see any replies.

Thanks!!

Thank you so much! I hate typing in portrait! I was not responding to some comments because I didn't want to type something lengthy in portrait mode. I appreciate you adding support for landscape.

One thing I've noticed is when typing in landscape, the screen doesn't scroll and there doesn't appear to be a way to scroll. So if you type for then a few lines, you can't see what you typed.

Downloaded it onto my iPad. I love the fact that I can view it in landscape mode now. :-) Great job, guys!

Sent from the iMore App

Trubador says:

Two things I noticed with the app. When in landscape mode, if you type a comment longer than four lines you cannot see what you are typing below that fourth line (as a matter of fact, I had to switch to portrait mode in order to finish typing this comment). In portrait mode, the cutoff occurs after line 10. And you cannot scroll up to be able to view what's behind the keyboard.

Thanks for adding landscape back!!! Really appreciate it. ;)

Also, thanks for letting us know about the new contest in celebration of the release of the new App. Not sure how the post escapes me since I'm a regular user of iMore but I'm glad now I have a chance to win something.
(Even though I never win these types of things) ;-P

This a a great addition to the app. However I had to sign in once again after I updated and I was experiencing problems. I had to delete the app and re-download in order for the sign in page to function correctly. I do like the new landscape mode though because it makes viewing pictures a lot smoother.

I prefer both reading and typing in landscape. Lack of landscape support in previous versions of the app is why I always went back to visiting iMore in Safari. Thanks y'all!
