Landscape Companion App


(Steve Copeland) #1

Please, please, please can we get the companion app to support landscape mode. My Tacx tablet holder does not hold a phone and only holds the iPad in landscape. I run Zwift on the appleTV and use the iapd for the companion app.


Companion app should work in landscape and portrait

Thanks for the request Steve! I’ll forward it over

Yes, please!

Agreed. Would be so useful


(Paul Porter) #5

Also running a Tacx iPad holder. Would also welcome Landscape in Companion App. :+1:

same here, Tacx Tablet holder with Samsung Tablet, Landscape is needed :smiley:

Yes please. I understand it’s practically developing a new tab, but even if you’d allow to rotate screen leaving wide black stripes on sides, it still would help.

I would also love the landscape option. Happy to have a cropped vertical screen as mentioned above.

Also would appreciate this - with the phone/tablet holder on my bike, the charging port is covered up if you put it in portrait mode, so if there was a landscape setting for the app, I could keep my phone on charge while using the Companion app (which does run down the battery really quickly).

yep - another vote for this from me!

I had the same problem but found loads of apps for controlling orientation in Google store. I installed ‘Rotation Control’ (free), set it to application specific and told it that Companion was landscape and it worked. Mine is an android fix but as ipad apps out-number android there’s bound to be plenty to look at. I agree it would be much better if native in the Zwift app but this will get us by until then. Good luck.

:+1: please …


(Vernon Mc Nees Cochrane Ab) #14

Adding my request for the same!!! Just sent a support request before looking here.


(Mark Dexter *Neo*) #15

Yes, why is this not on the app already???!!


(Gordon Gray) #16

I’d like that too please!


(Steven Smith (Racc) (Ggcc) ) #17

I’d love this feature and have asked this a few months back. (After I broke my old IPad when sprinting) sooooooo £350 later I’m asking again. I’m a beacon on GGCC group rides so Companion is essential. At the moment my iPad is tie wrapped to my Tacx holder. Not ideal.


(Steven W) #18

I regularly use iPad as companion app to Apple TV zwift session, this feature would be much appreciated!

Another vote here.
Tried running horizontally on treadmill, didn’t work. Landscape would be so much easier and treadmill friendly.
I remember Word on Windows 3.1 could do both portrait and landscape in the early 90’s, can’t be that hard a task for you Zwift genies?!
