No Landscape mode on Remote App IOS7?
English

After updating to IOS7 on my Ipad 4 i have found that the Remote App for controlling my Itunes music on the Mac Mini only shows in portrait mode and won't now rotate to landscape which is no good for me. Previously was working in landscape no problem.

Every other app , Safari etc has no problem switching rotation and yes i have tried locking it into landscape but it still shows in portrait.

Has anyone else found this? Or am i doing something wrong?

Mine flips to horizontal (iPad Mini) just as it did before IOS 7.  I haven't had to change anything.

Nope, tried everything, still

Nope, tried everything, still only shows in portrait on the ipad 4 Retina!
This seems to be a problem with other people too as it's posted in the Apple Support Communities.
Why they can't just leave things alone i don't know, spoilt a perfectly great app on the Ipad now, gutted.

yes, I (and all the ipads)

yes, I (and all the ipads) have the same issue. Lots of complaints on fora about it. Seems like a mistake but it is not clear if it is nto intentinal. Would be wrong not to allow rotation.

You must mean all the full-sized iPads as my iPad Mini and iPhone 5 seem to be immune...

iPad Mini landscape view in 'Music' under IOS 7.

iPhone 5 landscape view under IOS 7.  (Although I preferred the old way under IOS 6.)

Don't think I ever tried to use the Remote app landscape before the update. I can confirm that on my 4S nothing happens now, post-update.

yes, I think all full sized ipads lost rotation in remote with ios7. ipones/ipods never had it I think

p.s. I mean Remote app, not Muisic.

No ipad Minis and Iphones as well, i am talking about the "Remote" App not Music.

Music is landscape on full ipads the same as yours, Remote is not on any device in IOS7 as has now been clarified on the Apple communities as this App has not had an IOS7 update yet on Ipad or Iphone on which i have the Remote app on both.

Just a case of waiting and hoping now...

Yup, Remote App only works in portrait for me on iPad 4.

Not only does landscape mode

Not only does landscape mode not work at all, some of the controls don't work such as trying to go from Artist to Album view - it may work after ten tries or it may not - it's very slow to respond to commands.
Landscape mode doesn't work on my 5S either but everything else does & quickly at that.

Lost landscape mode on iPhone

From "Home" screen, slide finger up from bottom of screen -- may take several tries (you can often see a vestige of another screen "trying" to come up) -- to get an unlabeled, light blue screen of various parameters.  The upper right parameter is the rotation lock.  Tapping it will turn on or off the rotation lock, displaying the value in white (momentarily) at the top of the screen.  Inability to get landscape is due to this lock being "on."

Tapping the chevron at the center top of this light blue screen will make it disappear.
