    Default Multi window viewing question

    This might not be feasible, but I'll ask. When major video apps like Slingmedia, ESPN, or Comcast are added to the multi window, the portrait mode shifts to landscape (even if portrait is locked). Is there a way to watch apps like this in portrait, one app on top of the other? When you watch 2 video apps, the landscape video size is distorted. In portrait one on top of another, 16x9 resolution fills screen better.

    Default Re: Multi window viewing question

    It all depends on the app. Some apps don't support portrait or landscape modes and will always override your settings. Full-screen video apps most of the time will default to Landscape, and some won't even let you turn the screen upside down if you're holding the tablet 'backwards'.
