Resolution and Apps

Did anyone notice that with the resolution so high, some apps (words with friends for example) defaults to landscape view whereas on my older note 8.0, it would display in portorait. I think this is because the app thinks the tablet has a larger screen.

Thoughts?

This will get adjusted as soon as the app developers can adjust their apps to the resolution of the screen because it's not the same resolution as other tablets.

for the rotation: I highly recommend set orientation, it's free and lets you do truly full auto-rotation (ie, want Flipboard in phone mode to rotate? It'll let you) and will also let you lock orientation.

Also, for folks with root, take a look at installing Xposed followed by app settings. I use it mostly for dialing up size on apps that display ridiculously small fonts on the high resolution devices, but it has orientation settings that can be configured on a per-app basis and may help wth apps starting up in orientations that you don't want.
