Why do so many apps not on WP8 not support Landscape mode?
I use my phone in my car a lot mounted sideways (or landscape) and I notice that a lot of apps don't support this orientation. Is there any reason why this is?
Some apps I've noticed that don't work in landscape:
Nokia Maps (This is the most annoying because I want to use it for simple Nav and to find places in my car)
People (Contacts, Whats New, etc. Only after you select a contact it goes to Landscape... )
Music (An essential app while in the car)
Rido (Paid music streaming app)
Home Screen (not a big deal, tiles are easy enough to read sideways)
Facebook (not a big deal as I don't use this while driving)
I'm sure there a lot more. But I really wish Landscape was more supported.
