How to: Force Landscape Mode in Facebook Beta 1.2.5

by Robert Werlinger Thu, 10 Jun 2010 12:13 pm EDT

Landscape viewing in the Facebook for webOS app has been conspicuously missing since its major rewrite hit the App Catalog some months ago, but you can bet that feature is in the cards in upcoming versions.  It turns out that not only does the recently released beta version 1.2.5 support tagging, it also actually "supports" landscape viewing.

We don't know whether to call this feature or bug, but here you go: to force landscape mode, simply navigate to any picture and orient the phone sideways.  After you've done that, perform the back gesture while the phone is on its side and viola: Facebook in landscape.  

The downside to this is that once you've forced landscape mode, you'll have to quit and relaunch the app to get portrait mode back.
