Default Different screen layouts depending on rotation?

Hi guys.

I've tried pretty much every launcher out there, but I've not seen any with this feature.

I use my phone as both a phone, and a tablet. I have my screens exactly how I want in portrait mode, but when I switch to landscape, the widgets obviously become distorted.

Is there a way of making a different screen layout depending on what mode your in?

Thanks in advance.

Andy

I just adjusted my apps to what I could tolerate the most. Maybe if you root?

Those distorted widgets are not properly coded to re-render itself. You'll need to restart the launcher to refresh the widgets. You could probably use tasker to restart the launcher on screen layout change... I personally haven't done it but in tasker that seems doable.

Then there are launchers that have built-in options to restart... but those are manually done.
