    HI,

    Just bought a 7" Android tablet for my 3 year old Daughter (I know, i know but you should see how fast she is on it!!) however when I run various apps, it forces portrait mode and displays like it's a phone instead of landscape like a tablet should. Anyone know how I can change it's mind?

    FYI - It's a NATPC brand running Android version 4.0.4

    Thanks
    Simon.

    Some apps (like Where's My Water and Flow Free) force portrait because that is how the developer designed them. Not much you can do other than contact the developer and see if they plan to make a landscape version.

    Which apps are you asking about in particular?
