There is a problem operating the app in landscape mode, which for cameras, should be the preferred mode. I have to change it to portrait mode to go back a screen. This has been going on for quite some time but I figured I’d ask about it.
I guess because the main app page doesn’t have a landscape mode it doesn’t know what to do when trying to go back one screen from the group mode but it is a problem that should be fixed.
Just looked at the Wyze App this morning, Oct 20, 2021. I have lost the landscape view mode on my Samsung Tablet. I have not seen a new update in a few days, so what’s up with problem ? Please restore the landscape view!
It rotates fine. When in landscape mode, I can’t get back to the home screen. If I try to get to the home page in landscape mode while viewing a group, it shows the group in portrait mode so the view is sideways and then it jumps back to landscape. I won’t go from group view landscape mode to the home screen.
Rotate option works fine and every other App works in landscape and / or portrait ?
Something changed. Un-installed and re-installed Wyze App, same problem with camera views, tries to go to landscape view, then back to portrait view. This is a new problem.
Rob, what you describe has been that way since day 1. Nothing new. As I said in post 2, an annoyance.
I am curious about your item 6 “swipe to go back to the main menu”. How are you swiping “back”? Swipe just moves to the other cameras in the group (if it’s a large group), or does nothing if a small group. Confirmed on Android and #$%^& iPhone (other than there is no back button on iOS).
On my Android, depending on the home app that I use, I can use gesture navigation or button navigation. Swiping from the edge to the middle will go back to the previous screen. However, if I do this while in landscape, it doesn’t take me to what I would call my previous screen, it would take me to the portrait view of my group. But since I am still actually holding the phone in landscape, it goes right back to landscape. What I usually do, is from the main screen, I turn my phone to landscape and then click on my group so it goes from main screen to landscape group view. The thought is that if it goes back one screen, that would be to the main screen. That is not the case.
