Message+ Split Screen [disable]

I installed the latest version of message+ on my Galaxy Tab A with Android 7.1, but Message+ almost always starts in split screen mode (conversations on left and recent contacts on right).  When I open Message+ I can see that it tries to open in landscape and then quickly switches to portrait, but the interface stays in split screen.

Is there a way to disable this function in Message+?  I tried reinstalling the app and turning off "auto-rotate" on my device, nothing worked.

The message plus application is a great way to text on your tablet and we do want to make sure that you have all the details, CodaMan.  I checked the settings and it does not appear that there is a way to change the split screen layout at this time.  You can send feedback to the Message Plus app developers by sending an e-mail to: VerizonMessages@VerizonWireless.com.

This just happened to my tab A 8 running android 8.1 and it is driving me crazy! After suddenly going split screen out of nowhere, the app began to crash and would not work again until I restored my device to factory settings. A Verizon representative told me that was the only way to fix it.

Now, it's happening again...

So... it happened again. About two months ago the issue suddenly resolved itself... no split screen, all was good. Today, I update all my apps including message plus and the dreaded split screen is back!!??!!

Would someone please respond. Why did it go away and then come back? Clearly there is away to disable split screen.

Again, all I see is sad..

Oh no!  As a customer myself, I realize there’s nothing more frustrating than a fixed issue coming back.  Let’s put a stop to this split screen issue permanently.  A private message has been sent so we can assist you further.

Will you please resend that personal message to me so we can resolve this split screen issue. It's been going back and forth the last couple weeks and is driving me nuts.

Still, I prefer message plus over most all other apps.

Please help.
