Mass request landscape mode on Kindle Touch

I wrote to kindle-feedback@amazon.com asking if the landscape mode will ever be available for Kindle Touch.

They answered that my request has been sent to the proprer developers' team.

Maybe if they keep receiving many of these requests, a smoothly working landscape mode will be implemented by Amazon sooner than expected.

Stock answer. Amazon has no interest in implementing it; otherwise, they would've already done so.

I've also emailed them and got a response. Who knows if anything will ever come of it, but its better to try than to just complain about these things.

Well, KT has an accelererometer and it's "pillow" interface is already capable of changing screen orientation. Ther's only a couple of implementation bugs preventing us from having a fully functional screen orientation change feature.

It shouldn't cost them too much to complete the support and maybe letting them know that such a feature would be more than welcome could make them to plan it.

You would think. Common sense and corporate think tend to be strangers.

The lack of a landscape mode is bizarre, particularly if it's not to hard to implement. Perhaps Amazon consider it of interest to only a small group of kindle users.
