iPad version of reader

    Combining the streams page and the reader on the same screen, makes everything awkward. In either orientation the smaller space for the Reader stream makes some photos so small, (landscape format photos) the details cannot be easily seen. The tab to switch back to Reader from a post is in the middle of the screen awkward for large and small hands. Grateful if this change could be reconsidered. Thanks

    I am using the latest IPAD app on the latest version of an IPAD with the latest version of IOS. The app has changed the way Reader is presented by combining the stream page with the reader, the stream page takes up one third of the screen in portrait or landscape orientation of the IPAD. Unless you have an IPAD none of this will make sense. This is not an error it is the design of the app. I cannot think of a reason to lose a third of screen space to a list a tags/streams.

    Thanks for the tip on Modlook

  4. Thanks for the details and please be patient while waiting for a Staff response.

  5. Hi rakmilphotography,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    In either orientation the smaller space for the Reader stream makes some photos so small, (landscape format photos) the details cannot be easily seen.

    It sounds like your main concern is that Reader content feels too small and there is not enough space. Is that correct?

    I'd be happy to pass this feedback on to our developers. It would be really useful if I could show them some screenshots of what you are seeing, would you mind sending me a couple? There are some instructions here:

    You can send the screenshots to me using a service like Cloudup or Snaggy.

    Many thanks.

    This is how the app works. One day reader is full screen after the update it shares a screen with all the tags and streams on one side. What were formerly two pages are now one. Not a glitch but by design please speak to the app developer. With this update the reader has shrunk in size. . I am asking if there is some way to go full screen on the reader again. Why have an app on the iPad if the reader will not much bigger than on an iPhone. I would send A screenshot but I don't want to sign up for something new give me an email address. Or can I send it to haekp@wordpress.

    A screen shot was sent yesterday to Denise at help@WordPress on another matter. The issue number was #3059555. I had been asking about something else and mentioned the new app. The developers will know what I mean about this change.

  8. Hi,

    Not a glitch but by design please speak to the app developer.

    Ok, I'll pass this feedback on for consideration. If you have already sent us a screenshot, I will include that one; no need to send us another.

    Many thanks!
