    Home screen landscape mode?

    As far as I know Touchwiz does not seem to allow landscape mode. Is there a setting that I may be missing? With all this phone can do I can't believe it can't do that. Any ideas if it will be possible with the JB update?

    I know I could use a different launcher but for now I'd rather not. I want to have a frame or reference for battery life and such so I know when I do change it won't be a cost of speed or battery life.

    Good question, I was surprised it didn't flip to landscape on the home screen also. I think all phones and all apps should have that ability.

    Yes they should. If all these other launchers can do it surely samsung must be able to figure it out. I'm puzzled at how it's not a standard features.

    As I posted in the other thread, simply enable "screen rotation" in your notification bar. It will rotate most everything but your actual home screens.
    Other launchers may rotate the home screens themselves.

    Just an fyi...a replacement launcher will not mess with your speed OR battery life. If anything, you'll notice more speed.
    Plus there's so many ways to customize your phone with a third party launcher. You should give Apex or Nova a try. Both are optimized specifically for ICS. (You can always switch back to stock TW very easily)
    Good luck! :thumbup:

    I don't believe that custom launchers rotate home screens on a phone unless you're running a tablet mode hack. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    You just got corrected. Atom Launcher does, just as long as you enable it in the Atom Launcher settings -- though I didn't notice it until I was rooted, so it may be a root-only thing (seriously doubt it).

    Really? Been running Apex for a long time & never noticed that setting. Never really cared, I guess.

    I was looking in Apex earlier and didn't notice it either. I'll have to check again. Thanks Ollie :thumbup:
