could anyone thats able to make a theme and put it on installer make a theme that would make icons sideways? So we could view them on the homepage while holding the phone horizontally. Also they'd need to have the app name written in the icon. And maybe have one theme clockwise 90" and then on counter clockwise as well.

LOL. I asked for this one in the "give developers ideas" thread. Compleat landscape mode for the phone. I do believe it would be a tough one tho. A little step in the right direction would be landscape texting witch I want soo badly.

yeah Id like pulling my phone out of my pocket and go straight to horzontal viewing instead of vertical. Maybe I just need a change.

Am I missing something here?

Why not just redraw all of the icons rotated 90'. You'd also have vertical scrolling then!

You could also choose to have a left or right handed dock instead of at the bottom.

Of course, once an app opens you'd be back to portrait, but then I guess you would anway.

yes. Like I said. Landscape textng is a promising posibility but as for the entire phone functioning in landscape well that's just wishful thinking. I don't actually think it will happen..... Maybe with a future iPhone though.

i don't see the usefulness of having a theme thats landscape unless the entire phone would be run in that mode if u used that theme. To have a landscape theme and then when you open an application u need to turn it to portrait anyway seems pointless to me.

not all apps are portrait. And you right there's no usefullness to it. It won't make the phone better. It was just an idea. I'd use it if someone made one.
