    BTW, one should also consider WritingPad as an input method. Instead of typing, you trace the outline of the word on the keyboard. Works very well. Works the same way with email, no SMS. Has it's own memo storage. Free.

    i don't understand why apple did not release the email and text landscape from the start. that was (one of) their big things was the rotating screen, but they just kept it to safari. now when i download the new FWs, i always turn my screen in hopes that it will surprise me, but it's a no go =(

I would say sideways as it looks best but i would wait for better ones first as they have all seemed to appear today, how many do you expect to see in the future?

    I'm sorry, but whenever I hear anyone actually admit they go for looks over functionality esepcially with anything technical I can't help but ROFLMAO. It's like saying "oh, it's raining out, but I'm going to where my canvas sneakers instead of my boots anyways because they look prettier." The way it looks means absolutely nothing when it comes to technology, function always and only.

    I don't agree with that. I think allot of thought,time and energy goes into developing apps and these guys have to eat, I think they should charge for their hard work. I don't agree that it is greedy, they are just making a living like everyone else. Not trying to invoke anyone's anger, I am not a developer. I just support buying apps to encourage more apps.How can anyone expect quality apps if there is no incentive to build them. Saying they are greedy is like saying I am greedy for expecting a paycheck at the end of the week. I would not work if I were not getting paid, why should they? As it was said above the solution is there if someone really wishes for it. If someone wants a free solution then why don't they put the time and energy into creating one?

    ...and take a look at the price of Pocket PC apps over at Handango. You'll find very little for 0.99 over there. I sometimes feel embarrased at the value I get from apps that cost so little.

    Incidentally, who got FireMail while it was free? An excellent landscape mailer, better than the ones I paid for, and it includes predefined text entries.

    I been looking for apps that use landscape till i finaly gave up and decided to take my phone in. My keyboard does not work unless its in landscape mode. More mainly for changing to numbers. Kinda sucks but anyway i got biteSMS from the darkside of the iphone and was glad it worked. Their whole front is to use their SMS service to buy credits. But you can change the setting to Use Carrier and it will send it like a regular text. Landscape mode, Totaly free works just like the original SMS in the iPhone. But you do have to have Cydia to get it i hate to say. I looked in the App store too i just did not like what they had. No trial or anything. There were some but i just wanted basic SMS.

    And when i get my replacement iPhone I think i will still use it. It is kinda a shame we have to go "find" programs to do what we want to do but i guess if Apple was going to release it they would not allow the Apps on the AppStore since it would infringe on something apple does or in the future will do...
