It's great that we finally got landscape mode to Jolla, but unfortunately it wasn't good implemented. In Finland we have saying "Väärin sammutettu" (used when ex. fireman estinguished fire and someone says "that's estinguished in the wrong way").. Any way, we have partially same situation on with this case. Phone now has landscape mode (not in every part though), BUT...


Even on there (the link above) I was one of those (not sure was I the only one) who hoped that landscape mode would be implemented with orientation lock from the start. If so, there would be no need to write this request ar all.. Personally I just _hate_ the phone which screen rotetes allways with the phone. It's very annoying to use that kind of phone, when you are lying in bed for example. And now we have Jolla behaving just like that. There should be orientation lock easilly to access (pulley menu?) and that should be available there in every task you use phone.
