Kindle Touch Landscape??

Happy new year all,
I'm wondering if KT supports landscape mode.
I think it's useful when handling some complicated pdf files.
Thanks in advance.

It does, have a look in the developers corner, works quite well, some overlapping of menus. Even the touch areas rotate.

You need to root your kindle first, and then install the GUI Launcher: http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kind...g#GUI_Launcher

For those of us who choose not to violate the terms of the Kindle licence agreement, it doesn't .

Indeed. I'm weeping into my cup of tea .

Seriously, though, I have absolutely no need, personally, for landscape mode. I've never used it on any of the readers I've owned. But if it was essential to me, I'd probably get something like the Sony T1 rather than the Kindle Touch.

I have occasionally used landscape to look at photos. Fortunately, the KK still has it.

Yeah. It's nice to have on the keyboard model for the few books that have images in them. But, past that, it's not entirely the most useful function. I, personally, could have done without it.
