Please Add Landscape View for All Screens (Android, future.feature.request)

Postby willdresslar » Wed Jun 14, 2017 5:31 am

First, this is a really nice scoring app. Very well done. But my tablet is designed for landscape use. The game scoring is the only thing that works in landscape mode. All the other screens only work in portrait mode. This is very cumbersome.

Would really like the app to have a landscape view option for everything.

What kind of device are you using?
I have no issues scoring in landscape mode on an iPad.

I use a Samsung tablet.

I can score in landscape, but all other areas only show in portrait.

Is it possible there is a tablet and phone version? And maybe I have the phone version?

@support monitors this forum regularly and i am confident they will pick up your feedback and provide to the development team.

There are many models and sizes of Samsung tablets, which specific model and size you are using?
(I think Samsung offers over a dozen models and over half a dozen screen sizes compared to apple who has three tablet screen sizes.)

there is only one Andorid version of the iscore baseball scorekeeper app in google play store. the most current version is v 4.51.329.

As i understand it, The iScore program tries to optimize the display and user interface based on hardware device size and settings, but Android tablets come in such a wide variety of sizes and specs, The developers reportedly have tested a wide number of devices but can not verify all hardware combinations.
FTMSupport wrote:Android device come in a wide variety of sizes and it is nearly impossible to account for all sizes. We have done our best to make the screen fit as many devices as possible but with Google not giving a standard set of sizes, unfortunately some will suffer in various ways. It also does not help that manufacturers often do not report their own screen sizes properly either (changing the true DPI or pixel width / height to try and make them emulate different sizes). We will continue to do our best to try and "fit" as many screen sizes as possible, but will never be able to match them all perfectly.

Apologies for the vague response. It is a Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 inch (SM-T520)

If it goes to landscape mode for scoring, why would it not for the other features?

@Support / developers should be able to respond on app behavior, now that they have more specifics on the device in question .

I can also confirm this is the behavior on a Samsung Tab 4, running v4.51.329.

Landscape for scoring and stats.....Portrait for all other screens.
