[iPad] Screen Rotation Behavior Broken

Thread763861 (Reproduced in Rock Star chat)
Status: Fixed

Description:

Spotify's rotation detection appears to be broken in Spotify for iOS 1.1.x on iPad. Opening/Closing the app or locking/unlocking the screen (with Spotify in the foreground) will cause Spotify to change to portrait mode, even if the iPad is in landscape. 

 

To reproduce:

  • Place iPad into landscape mode.
  • Lay iPad flat on a table.
  • Open Spotify, it will launch in portrait mode. Pressing home shows the iPad is still in landscape mode. 

 

Workaround:

Tilting the iPad will return Spotify to landscape, but it appears to fail to detect the current iPad settings on launch/restore.

 

Additional information:

Seems to have been introduced in v1.1.

 

If you are having this issue, can you please post:

  1. Your iOS version.
  2. Your Spotify version.

Thanks!

 

Updates:

2014-07-30 - Fixed in iOS v1.5.0

Same problem with iPad Air iOs 7.1.1 Spotify 1.1.0

With my iPhone 5s everything works at iOS 7.1.1 and Spotify 1.1.0, but it can't sort by Artist and so on in my music...

I hope they will bring the same look on the iPad soon, it's definitely faster and I like the new look!

That's also what I replied back, that it doesn't make any sense what so ever. And I made it really clear they better fix this ASAP. Really want a solution soon, because I sincerely love this app and use it about 5 hours per day.
