So the original idea here of bending the phone against the hinge works, but you'll cringe every time you do it scared of snapping the hinge -- Here is a BETTER WAY
You can do it without bending your phone against the hinge to the point you think its going to break!
Apps in landscape mode - "No risk of breaking the hinge method!"
Note this works for Downloaded Apps but not the built-in browser, however why use the built-in browser when you can download and use Opera Mini!. Chances are you'll want to get rid of the Network Nag before opera mini will be usable
- Open your phone in portrait mode.
- Navigate to the downloads menu, but dont hit yet yet
- Put your finger on the 'OK' button, and close the phone as far as possible on your finger
- Click the 'OK' button on the download menu, quickly remove your finger, close the phone and re-open in landscape mode
Eh voila! all your apps in landscape mode!
Here's a video proving that it works! (i'll try to make a better quality video soon)
