Orientation

Mobile devices can be held in a number of different orientations. When designing for BBC Mobile platforms ensure that designs adapt to the user's preference, portrait or landscape.

For smartphones, in landscape orientation the design can either scale to fit the page, or redrawn to show additional content. Orientation should be used to affect the scale and format of what is being displayed, not to navigate between pages.
