ST app on IOS 9.3.1 on iPad


(Rick S) #1

Just upgraded my iPad last night to 9.3.1 and installed ST 2.1.0 for the first time and for the life of me I can’t get the app to rotate to landscape mode which is preferable for me on the iPad. Is it not possible?

Even in portrait mode, the SHM screen cuts off the Arm/Away/disarm icons and it looks like everything is zoomed in too much.

I have been using ST on my android/PC since Dec and was hoping to put my iPad to use as a keypads station

Thanks in advance

Landscape is not available.

No idea why, this has been requested for about two years, By both Samsung and Apple users , and there’s never been an answer.

As you mentioned, it would be very helpful for wall-mounted tablets. It’s also important for those of us in wheelchairs with tablet mounts.

There’s no harm in asking again, but it doesn’t appear to be a priority. The app has gone through at least two major redesigns during this period and landscape has never been added. :disappointed_relieved:

The ST app is portrait mode only and iPhone size only. You might want to take a look at http://www.smarttiles.click that many use on tablets for a nice visual and quick access to your installed Smartthings devices.

On a jail broken iPad and a tweak called Fullforce can make the ST app to utilize the higher resolution and IMO, I think it looks pretty good. Still no landscape mode.

Yes I have Smarttiles and yes, it’s good on the ipad. ST app is terrible however

Oh well, thanks for the info
