Landscape Mode for Pokemon GO
Many Pokemon GO trainers, myself included, have been wondering whether we’ll get to play PoGO in Landscape mode. It just sounds like the better option, allowing for much better visibility. Well, no such luck so far, but there’s a way around that. There’s a glitch that you can trigger that will make the app work in Landscape mode. We’re gonna show you how to do it.
The first thing you need to know is that this glitch seems to happen only on iPhones. Sorry, Android users, that’s the way the cookie crumbles.
Second, some features of the game are going to look and work a little weird. Don’t forget, this is a glitch, after all, so not everything will work perfectly when you activate it.
- Activate Pokemon GO and go to Settings.
- Tap on Report High-Priority Issue.
- When the Browser pops up, tilt the phone into Landscape mode.
- Tap Home.
- Go back into Pokemon Go, exit the Settings, and that should be it!
It might take a few tries to pull off. If this doesn’t work, try tilting your phone to Landscape before you start the app. Give it another few tries, and it should work eventually.
You’ll notice that the actual catching of the Pokemon looks really weird, and it does make catching Pokemon harder. Some of the menus will also be a bit off. But other than that, the app works fine. Enjoy this little bug until they patch it!
