Landscape View For Tablets

Agree. Event list is still in portrait but events themselves play in landscape, but … only cover about 2/3 of the width of my iPad screen while playing. Tons of wasted space to the right.

Why is this not fixed yet? It’s been a month already!

I use my iPad with a keyboard and it’s in landscape mode 99% of the time. Please program your apps to make that possible.

would you please also fix landscape bugs on ipads?
basically event viewer goes back and forth between portrait and landscape despite i mounted ipad 9th gen on wall so it always stays in same oreientation.
very annoying.
2nd problem when lighting connector is on the left side, full screen live view goes upside down when i finish viewing playback.
i would like be able use landscape mode with connector on the left because power socket is on the left of ipad mount, so it is easier for me to charge ipad keeping landscape mode with lighting connector on the left

MOD NOTE: Your post has been moved to this in progress wishlist topic. Please be sure to vote. What you are seeing is expected behavior at this point as the project is only partly developed. If you have a more recent iPad, try turning on Stage Manager which will let you view all pages in landscape.

Use landscape options on iOS devices.

I don’t ask for features very often, but when a piece of software regresses on me, I get a annoyed.

The app developer has some sort of portrait hangup. If I’m using landscape mode, don’t make me switch. There’s a reason I’m using that mode.

I use Samsung Dex on my Galaxy Fold Z 5, this is my primary business ‘Desktop’ computer.
I need the Wyze App to be compatible with landscape view, and android multi window.

Can we get an update from the mods on the status of Landscape development for tablets (iPad in my case)? A partial implementation was released several months ago that displays the Home screen in Landscape, but the Events list and other screens are still in Portrait. Another aggravation is that once you view an event, then return to the Home screen, you’re locked in Portrait again. I appreciate the partial implementation, but having the app flip back and forth between Landscape and Portrait is making me dizzy. TIA

Mods are just Wyze users who volunteer time to keep the forum organized and running smoothly. We don’t have access to internal Wyze development schedules or plans.

Understood. Just putting it out there in case you’ve heard anything or any Wyze developers lurking.

This is basic functionality.
Your suggestion people with disabilities need landscape view appears kind of insulting.
Grid view does not work on any Samsung Galaxy Tab S8/S9 series.
Using Samsung Labs Landscape mode setting is not workaround, does not change anything.
Also SD card playback for Wyze Battery Cam Pro does not work on these tablets.
Do you actually test app on Samsung tablets?

Millions of dollars, a nice office and tons of dissatisfied customers because you let such a Basic functionality sit dormant why you think of new excuses as to why you have’nt addressed the situation yet.

A responsible company would have addressed that immediately so as to serve their customers properly.

I sometimes rue the day that I became an investor in Wyze products…

if sales is your main focus and development of inexpensive products for the public followers in a close second then where does that leave Service? Without Service and I mean dependable service your company is doomed.

Just installed a bunch of Wyze floodlight/cam v2 and a doorbell and works well, but the portrait/landscape wackiness on the iPad drives me nut. Please fix! Is there a wishlist somewhere to vote on this?

You are on the wishlist topic for this. If you scroll up to the very top of the thread and you should see a VOTE button.

Thanks Loki! I voted. This thread has over 5 years of history, takes a while to scroll that far. In Nov 2018 Wyze said “We are planning to do this for a future build and looking into the implementation now.” Guessing I shouldn’t hold my breath on this one : ).

maybe paid app?
free wyze app - regular app with bugs
wyze landscape pro deluxe version - landscape view and no bugs

If they had a landscape option in a paid version it would have been announced already. Until Wyze fixes the App I am not buying any more of their products.

Yup, it’s a long thread. Forum tip: On desktop, if you click “Nov 2018” on the right side, it’ll take you right up to the top. On mobile, tap “986/986” (or however many posts there are now) to bring up this same scroll bar, then tap “Nov 2018”.

To summarize a couple points that may help that are buried in the 986 posts above:

• Wyze has made a bit of progress on this. A few pages now have landscape view. For example, the home screen now has landscape view on iPads.

• On newer iPads, if you turn on Stage Manager, the Wyze app’s non-landscape pages will be shown vertically with black bars on the side when the iPad is in landscape orientation, thus not avoiding the need to turn it to portrait to use the app.

Also, not directly related, but the Wyze app is available on Apple Silicon Macs (using Catalyst). It’s not perfect, but works pretty well.

I just looked again to be sure - mine are all displaying fullscreen in landscape (albeit with small black spaces at top and bottom) as they have been for a couple of months now. Still have to turn the iPad to portrait to get the settings icon, but turning it back resets it to fullscreen landscape. It was a long, long haul to get here. Maybe I turned Stage Manager on for some other reason somewhere along the line. Now if only GoPro would manage to fix their software too!
