Landscape Mode (Waving Hand)

Postby themaven » Fri Feb 22, 2013 5:27 pm

Hi. I've noticed that I cannot initiate the reports option by waving my hand with my iPhone in landscape mode. It works fine when I hold the phone upright. Does anyone know if there is a setting for this? Or does it simply not work in landscape mode?

It might be an iOS thing. I just checked it on my iPhone - same problem. The "wave" is not detected in landscape mode, although "tap 3 fingers" works in both landscape & portrait.

For some reason I seem to recall this being an iOS limitation. Could be completely wrong though.

Definitely iOS and discussed before. We've been informed iOS disables the proximity sensor in landscape mode. However, I've noted, at least on iOS 6.0.1 and iPhone5, that with the Phone app, the screen still darkens when I move it up to my head. Perhaps iOS disables the prox sensor only for non-Apple apps? Or maybe this feature is available now in certain OS or software.
