    Storm Owners: Portrait or Landscape?

    Advertisement



    I'm curious .. Do you find yourself using the Storm more in portrait or landscape? To me it would be easier to type in landscape But I've barely used the Storm (used a live one at the Dev Conf, but all the stores seem to have dummies ... Storm that is, not the actual employees )

    So let's hear it .. portrait or landscape?

    I much prefer to use landscape. For typing especially, and when reading emails or on the web, it seems like I can get more on the screen. About the only time I use portrait is if I just pull it out of my holster to answer a quick message or text and I'll use the suretype. That's pretty rare though.

    i love typing in landscape more but i find myself using portrait as its just a bit more convenient - because i use the reduced full qwerty

    edit - unless its an email or something a bit longer

    Landscape 99%.

    BTW, when using either way, a few programs like the PinStack app, the keyboard always shows up and there's no option to hide it.
    Totally sucks dude!

    I put 4.7.0.132 OS in last night and still does the same thing.
    Normal?

    Landscape--and for some odd reason I like the bottom row keys to be on the right hand side.

    SVT, have you disabled compatibility mode? This shouldn't be an issue with the pinstack app or other apps designed for the storm, but you can try going to options>advanced> applications>, highlight the application in question and click "Disable compatibility mode"... That should resolve your keyboard issue...

    zantopad:

    I never knew about the compat mode.
    I've only had the 2 Storms 6 days!
    Your answer worked GREAT!
    And I added a trust level for you!!

    Thank you VERY much!

    No problem... the compat mode is something unique to the storm i believe, and its supposed to help legacy apps function properly, but sometimes it is enabled by default when you download the app for some reason...

    Lol I'm like that too, kinda feels weird if my buttons are on the other side...

    Back to the post: I use 99% of the time Landscape. The only time I use portrait its when I wanna make a phone call.

    I can do either, but landscape to type with less errors!

    At least the Storm owners have a choice!

    I only got a weird landscape mode on my 8830 when I tilted my head.
    Made it a bit hard to read
