Rotation of the Gallery App

The Gallery App is very nice but there is one thing about it that is very annoying.

You should allow orientation changes in the Gallery App, because displaying portrait pictures is a nightmare. The would have the perfect size to display them in portrait orientation mode, but the orientation lock is on when using the Gallery App.

Please change that! Displaying all those scaled portrait pictures isn't fun.

Re: Rotation of the Gallery App

Yes, it's almost unbelievable: almost every screen auto-rotates ...except the screen for the app that absolutely needs auto-rotate, PHOTOS!

RIM is simply out-to-lunch on this issue, and it's really irritating. Their reputation is suffering badly due to their not-ready-for-prime-time software.
