Landscape mode is disabled in the Geocaching app

Yes. Why? It is another aggravating factor to add to all the others (eg clustering) on the new app.

Will this rotating issue ever be resolved?

Without it doing so I am unable to use the app :(

Huh... If I were explaining why I don't use the app, I would put the lack of field notes way ahead of landscape mode being disabled.

Why in the world would that stop you from using the app?

Let me explain. My phone has lost sensitivity in portrait view to the upper right hand side.

I can’t tap on that side to access the menu.

If however the app developer would allow the rotation of the screen to landscape view the menu would move to a part of the screen that I could tap onto.

And therefor allow the use of the app, without me buying a new phone.

There are others.

 

I have others. I thought I would try the new off line map features. Alas it's not possible because the developer chooses to disable rotation.

That's utterly ridiculous, and completely understandable.

 

Thanks for the smile this morning. Good luck.

 

Edited: Thanks for the answer to my question, which made me smile this morning.

So, is the developer listening? Will it be updated to rotate to landscape?
