Problem Rotating Photos In Facebook

Hi, although I got the rotation option unlocked in the home screen, I just can't get pictures to rotate into the landscape mode in Facebook only, not in youtube nor internet. Please help.

+1 for rotation problems, in different apps sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt would be nice to know if its not meant to function everywhere?

Re: Problem Rotating Photos In Facebook

I have just bought a brand new Blackberry Z10. While I have only had it for 3 days I cannot get the ROTATION function to work. Sometimes it will work for a few moments and then it ceases for no apparent reason. Is there anyone out there who knows what to do to stop this malfunction?

Re: Problem Rotating Photos In Facebook

Facebook only seems to work in portrait mode at the moment. This is annoying for the pics, but not the end of the world. I'm sure that there will be an update to address this.

A lot of the apps are immature on the Z10 simply because they are so new. It is not an excuse, just a fact.

I'm looking forward to seeing these apps updated and working better and better. I really want apps like Twitter and Facebook having the full functionality of the BlackBerry 7 versions.

Re: Problem Rotating Photos In Facebook

Can I confirm if screen rotation works on BBM? I can't seem to get it to work on BBM this seems strange as one of BB usps is BBM which is all about messaging, why would it work for SMS and emails but not BBM? Please tell me I am wrong??

Re: Problem Rotating Photos In Facebook

BBM doesn't rotate, but if you open a BBM chat in the hub, you can rotate it there.

Also from other apps such as pictures if you are sharing a picture.

Thanks for the tip :smileyhappy: 

 

I find that quite annoying where can we provide RIM with feedback?

Probably best to Tweet them as those accounts seem to be actively monitored.

I'm sure that BBM and Facebook not supporting rotation is a known issue though.

Re: Problem Rotating Photos In Facebook

Rotation is becoming more of a problem in all day to day uses of the Z10, emailing, texting you name it the thing has a mind of its own, sometimes a screen tap whilst rotated fixes the problem, but it is FAR from perfect.

I am also hanging out for a major firmware update on the phone.

Re: Problem Rotating Photos In Facebook

I can confirm that the issue with rotating photos on Facebook is not solely a Z10 problem, I had this issue on my Torch 9800 as well, so whether it's an issue that Blackberry or Facebook need to resolve, I don't know
