Hi everyone. Quick question. How do you read mail on Apple's mail program on iPad 2 in full screen? I mean how do you get rid of that Inboxes pane on the left?

Thanks Tallest. so you can not read it full screen in horizontal view? I hadn't even tried flipping it. I like it best in horizontal mode, perched on my Otterbox. But I suppose that'll make do. Kind of disappointing.

Also it's occurred to me that smartphones and tablets should a physical LOCK screen button. No searching for a setting somewhere or hoping an app supports it. I am particularly annoyed when using mapping apps for this. But that's a digression. There isn't a system-wide way to lock the screen sideways is there Tallest skil?

On the iPhone? I haven't heard of one. I wish it did, the soft lock only does portrait.

Nope. They figure the width of the content in portrait mode is as wide as people would want to see said content, so they use the extra space for the Inbox.

You mean rotation lock? The iPad has this.

Ooops. Yep i'm a new a newb with iOS stuff. Thanks! I found this... http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4085

It's a great design. Now I'm quite happy! I wish my Android had this feature!

I do wish I could do full screen Mail, but oh well, perhaps they'll add that in some other time.

Improved in iOS 5. Full-screen Mail in Portrait mode. Just swipe from the left to show Inbox, etc.

This is just another example of Apple's arrogant "we know better" atitude and flagrant diregard of accessibility that drives me nuts. I really need landscape view and large type to compensate for my poor eyesight.

So freaking pinch to zoom. Quit pretending Apple is being evil.
