Community SSU/Features/Portrait mode

Portrait mode can now be forced on all applications as part of the Community SSU. Not all applications work perfectly. Details of the compatibility of applications with portrait mode is compiled below.

The purpose of forcerotation is not to enable system-wide portrait for end-users.

[edit] System Applications

Application Status Rotation Comments

Calculator Fully Usable Supported CSSU has new open source clone of Nokia Calculator with Portrait Mode support.

File Manager Fully Usable Forced N/A
Hildon Application Manager (HAM) Fully Usable Supported Themes don't provide colourful background
Hildon-Desktop Fully Usable Supported Need to rearrange icons/widgets in portait mode.
Media Player Semi-Usable Forced Icons are not rearranged. Alternative Open Media Player has native portrait mode support.
MicroB (Web) Usable Supported When using built-in auto-rotation, ui elements such as address and status bar are unaccessible. When rotated by hildon ('enabled rotation' off in it's settings), just about all UI elements are usable; the bookmark button and the full screen button is there in the arrow's submenu, but they're invisible at the top and bottom halves of the small blank space that's there.
Modest (email) Semi-Usable Forced Dialogues, such as "Message Details" are compressed.
Notes Fully Usable Forced N/A
Phone Fully Usable Supported Add/Edit new contact UI unusable.
Photo Viewer Semi-Usable Forced Viewing photos is buggy. The system get confused which direction to show image and thus image rotates haphazardly. While in full screen mode if the phone is held ear piece down portrait mode works fine.
Settings Fully Usable Supported N/A
Task Switcher Fully Usable Supported Part of hildon-desktop
X-Terminal Fully Usable Forced When using busybox rotation from portrait to landscape generates a large amount of "blank" space between the last lines of the history, and the current command-input line. Solution is to use bash or patched busybox from CSSU.
