twitter landscapeWhile the iPhone has always offered landscape support, not all apps take advantage of it. In fact one of the more unique features of the iPhone 6 Plus is that when landscape mode is enabled, even the home screen can be tilted which in turn leverages the larger 5.5-inch display of the phone.
