Clock/Alarm - No landscape mode?

I use my phones as my night clock and alarm clock. My last phone was an S3 and I have a cheap little stand that I use to stand my phone up while charging it at night. I notice that when my alarm comes on in the morning that the screen is in portrait mode although my phone is actually sideways in landscape mode. My S3 didn't do this as my alarm was in landscape mode so I didn't have to deal with a sideways alarm clock in the mornings.

Has anyone else noticed this? Is this a new "feature" of the Note 4?

Thanks.

I also notice the built in "clock" app actually has no clock. The only tabs I see are Alarm, World Clock, Timer and Stopwatch. Where did the desk clock go and why does none of this stuff rotate into landscape mode? What am I missing? How does a clock app have no clock?

This is on a non-rooted Canadian Note 4 running Nova as my launcher.

Hmmm.... seems odd that I'm the only one that has this issue. Must be a problem with my phone.

Any 3rd party clock/alarm clock apps worth looking at?

After a lot of research, it seems the stock touchwiz clock/alarm app has been severely neutered. I downloaded Timely from the Play store so we'll see how that goes....
