Landscape view

Novice

Doesn't the Droid  do Landscape on the Home Page and the Telephone icon page?

 

Mine stays  in Portrait style..

 

It does alternate between the Landscape and Portrait  in the Browser and Contacts page   I can rotate from Portrait to Landscape no problem?

The home page doesn't turn landscape unless you have a 3rd party launcher such as launcher pro or ADW.

 

Even with that the phone app doesn't go into landscape.

pool_shark is exactly correct, you can install ADW to add this function plus it is a superiour launcher over stock one.  Now as for the dialer I think it can switch to Landscape when placed in dock mode and there isnt any way around this I know of..

That explains it   Thanks

How do I get the ADW launcher?   It is better than the Droid launcher?

Both the ADW and LauncherPro can be obtained from the Market. As for being better? That is a personal opinion. I am using the LauncherPro and prefer it over the Droid launcher.
