iPad app in landscape mode?
Are there any plans for the iPad app to work in landscape mode? Over here you go into any store that sells iPad covers/stands and you would be hard pressed to find one that works in portrait mode like your app. The exception being those holders that attach to mic stands etc.
I don't think the missus would like a mic stand on the breakfast table!

Getting back to normal after a very successful SynthFest UK.
The short answer is no, it only works in portrait mode as we layout the screen design to match the vertical print magazine format.
Unfortunately, the underlying app technology does not provide for a responsive design that reflows as you change the device orientation. At the moment the only way to provide a landscape mode would be to redesign every page for both portrait and landscape which is twice the work and we would have to do it for our UK and US magazine apps. So sorry but we simply don't have time in a very tight monthly production schedule to do that amount of work.
However, we have been looking at changing to an HTML5 authoring app that will reflow the content but it's very much early days. We hope to launch something next year but I'm not able to give a date at this time.
