    Default Rotating Pictures

    I remember seeing something about a feature in iOS 4 that you can rotate pictures in "Photos" app 90 degree clockwise. Anybody know anything about this?

    Not sure the Photos app will do that... but there are several good and free apps that will - I use the PS Mobile app... it does that and more and the price is right.

    Yeah there are other apps that can do that, but i thought it would just be better on the photo app so pictures won't be duplicated.

    Every apple native app should be able to rotate. and if the iPad's photo app can rotate pictures a full 360 why not the iPhone 4? any iDevice updated to 4.0 can rotate pictures 90 degrees, but I want 360.

    No. He's talking about actually rotating the file, not rotating the device.

    iPad can rotate 360 because the iPad is designed to be held any way you want. That's why the iPad has a horizontal home screen and lock screen too.

    You can always rotate the phone and take a screen shot by holding the power and pressing the home key. I've done that before.

    That works for changing a landscape photo to portrait, however your photo will then only be 320x480.

    Not without rotating the phone!
    He's not talking about rotating the device.

    Go into the Photos app and try rotating a file without rotating the phone...

    Hint: Not happening.

    Honestly, this should have been in iOS 1.0... What the hell.

    And, in-line video playback in the browser is something I was really looking forward to as well, and they removed that too. Wtf
