Regardless of the bubble gum holder, I saw we abandon this thread at 666 posts.

Maybe they’ll get the hint.

I’ve posted this in another thread and maybe even here, but don’t recall.

I don’t think I’ve ever got an answer to why Wyze can’t do as Amcrest has done here:

I can 'live" with this until Wyze figures out how to do a true LANDSCAPE app

Anyone from Wyze want to answer this specific question?

And now it’s time to jump back on the Landscape soapbox.

Any new news?

OK…I’m off the soapbox now.

You may go about your normal, no Landscape type of day,

that is all,

I suspect because they have to balance the number of hours (massive, when you consider how many lines of code the app has) vs return on investment.

They are interested in doing this though (RE; Researching), so bear with them. :slight_smile:

if they could fix at minimum the obvious failure - the fact that when you try to see a camera group in landscape mode, there is NO navigation at all to go back.

It could simply fixed by either remove the landscape view for Camera group (would be bad solution but possible) or do the same display as a single camera in landscape mode (a disappearing top bar with the group name and the navigation button that show when you touch a given area… or make it even not disappearing at all if they are concern of the navigation issue it could cause as touching a given camera tile do actually navigate to that camera).

So there is at least a way to navigate back from here without the need to rotate the tablet to access a way to go back to the menu. I can navigate the portrait application afterward without rotation. just missing that ONE step in the way…

All I am asking for now… a full landscape supported application can come way later once they figure it out and redesign the whole thing with that in mind in that very hypothetical application v3 that may come one day.

Add me to the list of users requesting landscape mode or at least a back button from a camera group.

:laughing::hear_no_evil::wink: Ummm, I don’t know if this has ever been suggested before but have you guys thought about landscape mode for the tablets​:grin::grin::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::poop::zzz::zzz::zzz:

Did someone say Landscape?

SJ

Someone daydreaming I am afraid…

Hmm, it’s a little hard to tell from the cropping but was @nixhome2020 's avatar photo taken in portrait mode itself? :wink:

Landscape with the Wyze Splash screen says it all:

Perhaps the same as WYZE is doing…

Daydreaming, Hoping that those of us that want Landscape would just go away and quit stirring the pot…

This Pot Stirring would go away very easily if Wyze would simply be transparent and let us know it is, or is not going to happen.

Four years+ is more than enough time for WYZE to have made a decision on this BUG.

What say you WYZE? Landscape or NO Landscape?

It appears that Wyze has implemented something called "Fix-it Friday"

It appears that Fix-It Fridays will rotate amongst four venues… landing here in the Wyze Forums once per month. If I have used my calculator, fingers and toes correctly, it should land here again on Friday March 18th. I’ve set myself a reminder to ensure I’m here to participate at that time.

It appears that Wyze will address the top 3 or 4 issues of those ‘present’ at these Fix-It Fridays.

If the 537 folks who voted for this wishlist item to show up en mass to that next Fix-it Friday event on March 18, 2022, then perhaps WYZE will be forced to address the issue, rather than continue to ignore us in this thread. (I doubt we’ll get more than 10 of us showing up, but we can hope, right?)

To my fellow 537 “Landscapers”… Please join me on March the 18th for a Fix-it Friday gathering…

Perhaps if Wyze can put this much energy and effort into Fix-It Friday, we can leverage it for the greater good of Landscape Mode.

See you on the other side,

@WyzeGwendolyn please confirm the date, and time that this even starts, and a general run down of how it works? Is it interactive? Is it just posting our feedback in the forums as we are doing now?

Count me in, let us know here when it happen, and we will be smashing that heart button on your message!
Seems Inmate @peepeep did try, but he did not let us know and not enough people did click the heart on his message.

Yes but you’ve proven my suspicion correct, that the photo itself was taken in portrait mode. The bitter irony.

Update on Fix-it Friday, we can participate in Fix-it Friday in any of the “Communities”… so we should all ‘meet up’ next Friday, March the 4th here on the Wyze Fix-It Friday, and provide feedback and hearts to a level that Wyze can’t ignore.

Please join me next Friday for some Landscape feedback for Wyze.

If anyone knows what time the Forum normally opens for comments, please let us all know.

SJ.
