Landscape mode for Jolla apps

For some reason most of the Jolla apps seem to not support landscape mode, while a few do (such as the calendar or mail). Is there a reason for this? Are they planning to get this fixed? It's quite irritating to use this way when laying down.

Also, will the home screen support landscape mode sometime?

The solution is a patch: LINK and you can find more same type of patches for this function... good luck :)

Thanks, I'll install it. This is however not a good solution, a patch should not be needed. An user coming from iOS, Windows or Android will not know what to do to have this, and will need to deal with portrait mode.

I would still really like to see landscape mode added by Jolla themselves.

Maybe true what do you say, but eventually this is not a difficult solution fortunately.

But I think, unfortunately as they didn't add this function so far, won't add it in the future...
