[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

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.
