Using both Portrait and Landscape screens in one app

I know that the responsive design for powerapps is planned as per this idea - https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/Responsive-Design/idi-p/4629 . However, till that is achieved can we get the option of having both landscape and portrait screens within one app? I believe we can use the accelerometer values to determine device orientation and then change the screens based on that to a portrait/landscape screen. I know that this will be a lot of work for us but can be a workaround till we get the responsive design in powerapps.

I think the freature idea is good / needed. I have a client that needs 2 of 15 screens in landscape mode, the rest in portrait. Why not have a setting per screen that just forces the screen to go landscape.

I am facing same issue because i want to on single screen report on landscape mode rest of screens in portrait mode . curent setting orientation as global but i need screen dependent.

To be honest the thought hadn't crossed my mind until I built a signature collection app.  

 

Having the signature in portrait on mobile is fine if the device belongs to the signatory, however, in my case the device owner or person collecting the signature is a Security Guard collecting a Signature from someone they are providing building access to.  It would be MUCH more appropriate to have a full-screen landscape pen input panel for this. Especially given not everything in the record that display's for the Guard is relevant to the signatory.
