As you may know, Club Penguin Island is restricted permanently to portrait, but there are many advantages to a landscape mode, such as video recording and taking pictures. Thanks to MikeyMichael, here’s a guide on how you can take screenshots like these on an Android device:
Firstly, head over to the Google Play Store. You’ll want to download “Set Orientation”.
Wait for the app to download. When it does, it will come up with a menu once you open the app. Scroll to the bottom and find landscape.
Open Club Penguin Island and enjoy!
It’s as simple as that, yet it’s super neat! This won’t get you in trouble since you’re not “hacking” or “changing” the game, just the dimensions on your screen and whilst there are advantages, there are disadvantages too. For example, the buttons become smaller and it’s harder to see chat if your keyboard is large.
Update: Everything seems perfect on CP Island in landscape mode but we now know why it won’t be coming out in landscape mode anytime soon. Disney have said this:
“It’s hard if you’re a kid to hold a tablet in landscape mode. With the new app, kids don’t have to stretch their fingers across the tablet.”
Once again, a huge thanks to MikeyMichael for this information!
