    Hi! I am a newbie and have a question. Several of the apps I have downloaded appear in my screen as needing to be viewed the long way on the screen. How can I chance this direction so that is is the right way when using the keyboard

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    With some applications rotating the phone 90 degrees will rotate the direction of the screen. In other applications, however, the developer did not accommodate for this change from portrait to landscape mode so adjusting this can be quite difficult to accomplish successfully. I do not personally know of a third party app that will force an application to change from portrait to landscape. sorry!
