    I have an HTC Evo 4G.. and fat fingers. This makes for a less than desirable experience with the on-screen keyboard. I'd like to be able to lock the phone into landscape view - yes I still have some love for my old Sidekick

    Is there an app that can do this? I'd even be willing to re-write my ROM in order to accomplish this if needed.

    I think you'd have to do it at the ROM level -- apps cant generally control the presentation of other apps. Much as i'd like to redo all the ugly apps with your nice artwork :)

    Yeah, the more I research this the more I think you're right. Hard to believe Google didn't think this was important.

    And, thank you. I've re-written most of my downloaded apps to match my overall theme.. lots of work though.
