Set device mode (switch app screens)

Setting app device mode

+Device mode refers to switching the mobile phone screen.

+You can choose to create the app screen portrait or landscape only.

The default app setting created in Swing2App is [Horizontal-Vertical Composite], so you can rotate the app screen freely.

If you want to see only the landscape mode or portrait mode depending on the app, you can change the app screen to landscape or portrait mode in the advanced settings – device mode.

▶Example of creating an app in landscape

If you look at your app, apps created in landscape mode will have the app screen in landscape mode as soon as you launch it.

The screen automatically switches to horizontally.

Landscape mode is not a separate development.

You can build landscape mode apps with advanced setup options provided by Swing2App.

Please switch the app screen to see how to create an app.

2. Check the app on your phone

Portrait Mode

In portrait mode or landscape-vertical composite app, the app is shown in a portrait screen when launched.

Apps created in landscape mode appear to have a horizontal screen when the app is launched.

Apps created with [Horizontal-Vertical Composite] can also be rotated horizontally to switch the app screen to landscape.

In the landscape-vertical composite, you should be able to view the screen horizontally and vertically when the automatic screen rotation is selected on the phone.

Please check the screen switch in the phone settings.

The app is built on the default device: Landscape-Portrait. If you want to change the screen to landscape or portrait mode,

*Swing2App production page → Advanced settings menu → App production settings → Device mode ‘EDIT’ → Select ‘Horizontal only’ or ‘Vertical only’.

When you recreate the app, the app screen switches to the mode set when you launch the app on your phone.
