I know that Jolla is not ready to fully support landscape orientation, but there is one this that annoys me.

When use an app in landcape mode (for example watch a video), the volume buttons act as reversed. I push the right volume button in the way that suggests higher volume on the volume bar on the screen, but the volume bar decreases volume (moves to the left) and vice versa.

This behavior is quite confusing and opposite to the way N900 handles it. It is a bug as I see it, but I'll tag it as feature request for now. Please, make this at least optional.

Here to see how it's currently broken: Reversed behavior

And here is my proposal:

Correct behavior

I found reversing such button pretty annoying, please make it optionnal.

Sure, it can be optional. I too find the reversing annoying, that's why I suggest it to be fixed. :) Added a picture to illustrate how broken it is.

like the idea +1; another option could be to rearrange the volume bar so that it remains on the same position as in portrait mode

For me it is more confusing to press on the left button and display bar goes to the right or vise versa. So please change it, even if it turns arround buttuns behaviour.

The current behaviour is definately a bit odd.
