Title: App orientation
Post by: pcjackson06 on August 20, 2011, 09:23:24 pm
Are there any plans to support portrait orientation? Unfortunately the iPad can really only be docked in portrait mode and from what I can tell SQ isn't compatible with that.

Their are several iPad docks that can be landscape or both. I've started a list here (http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php?topic=7533.0) of the ones I've found so far, add more if you have them.

Every so often this comes up and I think is a very legitimate request. My personal experience with SQRemote has turned out to be not an issue with the iPad as I use it almost exclusively in landscape mode. All I can say is it is on the road map... but there are a lot of items ahead to be tackled.

Yeah, I mean there are products out there that will hold the iPad in a horizontal orientation, but very few that will elegantly "dock" the iPad while charging it.  Supporting portrait orientation is probably a good thing...

I like several of the horizontal charging docks, it's making the iPod/iPhone a one handed device or wall mountable on a single gang box that would make me happy.
