Newsstand: Landscape Cover Preview possible?

Tags: #horizontal #preview #cover #magazine #generic #newsstand

Hi,

 

we are developing a multi-issue Newsstand-App. Our magazine is landscape only. Despite several attempts i can neither make the generic preview cover nor the actual cover show up in landscape-orientation in Newsstand.

 

Here is a preview of our actual cover in sandbox-mode:

We would like to have the preview cover in landscape (like our generic cover for approval):

(above shown: our generic cover 128 x 96 pixels)

 

Viewer Builder does not accept this landscape cover, only portrait 96 x 128 Pixel:

Apple does seem to support landscape in iTunesConnect for the generic cover, but Viewer-Builder seems to override those settings.

 

Furthermore, the actual cover (after you opened your Magazine in Newsstand) is in portrait-mode despite what you upload in iTunes:

Does anyone has a hint or clue how to get the preview right for horizontal orientation only magazines (no portrait view included)?

 

Any help would be most welcome. Thanks so much in adavance,

Andreas

    If you select Newspaper (Zeitung) instead of Magazine, are you able to specify a landscape image?
