    hello all, i'm very new here and very new on android also, so i hope you guys could help me out with my viewpad 7 problem.

    i just bought this device, no problem so far but i just realize that the auto rotation function doesn't work well.
    the auto rotate function is not working at all while on the desktop and on the main menu, they were always landscape, while on every other application it's always portrait.

    what i want to ask is : is that normal?, if not, what is the problem and how do i fix it?
    so far i have doing hard/factory reset a couple times, do the g sensor a couple times, but none seems work.

    help are very much appreciated, thank you.

    That's not a problem, that's expected behavior for this device. It defaults to landscape for a lot of things and there's no certain way to fix it. Some people have some success by using alternative launchers (go, Launcher Pro, ADW, etc) ... but those don't work for me.

    And this isn't a very active forum - I'm usually the only one who replies, and I hadn't checked posts in a fewdays so...

    Thanks Chicknlil for helping out so much. I always see your post trying to answer the question. What is the most popular and helpful forum for the Viewpad 7?
