How to force the iPhone’s calculator into landscape mode

By , Apr 13, 2013

LandscapeCalc

Do you always use the scientific functions on iOS’ Calculator app? Do you find the standard calculator to be worthless without scientific functions? If so, then try LandscapeCalc.

LandscapeCalc is a jailbreak tweak that locks the calculator’s orientation into landscape mode. After the first rotation from portrait to landscape, the calculator will never return back to the default orientation until the Calculator app is killed or stops running.

This tweak is useful for those of you who are talking algebra courses in school. There are no options to configure, just install it and go.

LandscapeCalc is a free jailbreak tweak available right now on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Share your thoughts about the tweak in the comments below.

        Do you know how to configure it? I have it installed and it doesn’t affect anything.

      • http://twitter.com/Mungugu Alex

        There is nothing to configure…Custom Battery only changes your Lockscreen Battery while charging…

      • RarestName

        Works on my iPhone 4S (iOS 6.1.2) though.
        Try reinstalling/respringing?

        looks nice. but i can’t find it in the default repo?

      • http://www.facebook.com/HellsBoyz HellsBoyz Nguyễn

        Search Google for it, you will find it.

      • http://www.facebook.com/HellsBoyz HellsBoyz Nguyễn

        Still doesn’t work. Try reboot also…

      • RarestName

        Must be a conflicting tweak then.

    As a pre-calculus student, I find the calculator as a whole to be mostly un-useful for anything beyond the basic 4 functions. If I had another calculator near me, I would steer clear from the app all together.

    I bet it’s an upcoming tweak! ;)

    That battery is nice, what’s it called?

    My iPhone already does this when I turn it to landscape. I see no need to download a tweak that does what the stock app already does. Just because it keeps it in landscape is no big whoop. The stock one will stay that way until the orientation is changed. To me it’s a waste of space, but that’s my opinion. If it is useful to someone then great.
