I just installed the Roku Mobile app for my iPad. I use my iPad in landscape mode with a keyboard case. The main objective was to be able to use my bluetooth keyboard to type on the Roku through the app. This worked, but the Roku app reverts to a portrait display on the iPad so it’s sideway since I use the iPad in landscape mode. Any chance the Roku Mobil App could be modified to properly orient itself when the iPad is in landscape mode? The app isn’t unusable by any stretch, just a user experience question. Thanks.
I do not see any answers to the only question about the topic: “Landscape orientation” the Roku app is useless to me in the portrait view. Why is it like this and as the other person who asked this question, is this something that can be changed? Thanks
FWIW, I unplugged my Rokus and switched to Apple TV units. The mobile remote app is built into my iPhone and iPad and works great in landscape mode.
Are you using the "Roku - Official Remote Control" app by ROKU INC on the iPad? This app does not appear to support landscape orientation? In fact, this app doesn't appear to be specifically designed for the iPad - it's an iPhone app that "stretches". (?)
EDIT: Ahhh, you're talking about the Apple TV remote app - not Roku?!
Try this:- You can lock the screen orientation so that it doesn’t change when you rotate iPad. Open Control Center, then tap the Lock Orientation button. When the screen orientation is locked, the Lock Orientation icon appears in the status bar.
