Landscape Tablets & Phones - app goes back and forth between landscape and portrait depending on page
Ever since adding the advertisements, we have a pretty big problem. When we are on a page that has ads, our display rotates to portrait mode and is locked there. But then if we move to a forum, or a board that does not have ads, our display rotates back to landscape mode. So as we navigate the app a lot we have to keep turning our whole tablet back and forth back and forth. This is really annoying.
When I install an app like this that I've never used, I delete the app. For example when a problem like this occurred with my poker site, I moved all my money to another poker site. Of course I love slickdeals and because I already use the app, I just put up with this very very annoying situation. Since it's been a while it looks like it's not high on your priority list to fix this. Even if you just lock everything to portrait mode, that would be much better than the way you have it. For other reasons I need to lock my tablet in landscape.
Most apps like yours will turn to portrait mode and continue in portrait mode as long as I use the app. That would be much more acceptable than the way it is now.
I hope that I have succeeded in explaining the significance of the problem. If you would like, I would be happy to post a video showing you how difficult it is to use the app for me and others who use tablets, and phones in landscape view. Another alternative is that some developers put out tablet versions of their apps.
Thank you for all the hard work you do on the mobile app and on slickdeals in general. I'm not looking out only for myself here, but I'm sure you will lose some potential users for this who try the mobile app and decide not to use it. and I have a feeling that locking down the app to portrait would be a pretty simple solution that would improve it a lot. Of course I and many others would prefer to use it in landscape mode though!
