Landscape View For Tablets

iPad App Landscape View Request

Would love the app to be able to be viewed in landscape mode on an iPad - specifically, camera views… perhaps stacked windows in columns and rows.

Thanks!

Does anyone here have a suggestion for a third party app that will allow for landscape view of my Wyze camera? Removing my keyboard to use this app is not an option, and it’s wildly disappointing this has been begged for this long. 922 posts over half a decade sounds like a consensus.

I don’t think you are going to find a third party app on iOS that would be allowed to control another app in that manner. However, if your iPad is recent enough, you can turn on Stage Manager, and this will display the app in portrait when appropriate even thought the iPad is horizontal.

I appreciate your quick response but alas, my iPad is pre-M1. This problem continues to plague me.

Someday this will happen…

It’s so odd that Wyze can make such great products and such wimpy UI software (no landscape on a tablet!!!). I guess it’s a completely different skill set ….so sad!

Klp15685… I hope you are right but lets keep it real… It is never going to happen…

Don’t count on it. For some reason they seem to have simply decided they are not doing this. Some of us started asking at least 4 years ago. At first they said it was coming. Now they just ignore it.

We have made the Home and Event tabs on iPads landscape, this portion is now in testing as of the 2.42 beta test app.

Finally!! Please note there’s a bug, in landscape mode on iPad, once I click on a group, the group appears in proper landscape (as before, 2x2 view of cameras), but the back button (to get back to the home screen) is missing. The only way back I’ve found, is to rotate the tablet back to portrait (sigh), Still, it’s a beta, bugs are expected, but YAY, finally, nearly 5 years after the requested!!

As mentioned in my post on the beta thread, instead of a single column of cameras/groups (on the home screen), please put up two columns to use the width of landscape. Ditto for Events tab, instead of a single column of events, please put up two columns to make good use of the width!

Will this update apply to latest gen iPad Pro, or will landscape be available to all legacy iPads as well?

Thank you Jason for working on this. Please let me know if you need any of us to get on and test the beta to provide more feedback.

Hoping that this is (at least) the beginning of the end of a LONG, strange trip for @milehiguy :grinning:

That so called fix is not good enough if I still have to rotate the iPad to access the home button

Yes, the more people that test the beta and report findings the better.

Yes and the faster the actual/final version will be released. Plus, then maybe I’ll buy more cameras. Right now I have one and I refuse to these people any of my money until this matter resolved.
