Landscape vs. Portrait

Is there any way to switch the app from portrait mode to landscape? I use the app on my iPad fitted with a keyboard, so it is in constant landscape mode. Every time I use the app, I have to physically turn the iPad and end up with a dangling keyboard. Not very handy.

No sound

I have several news channels on my pad and have sound for all except CBS21 news app...I have gone into settings..I have tapped on everything I can tap..I even deleted and reinstalled app several times...very disappointed as I would probable delete the other news apps if this one would work.

Good But COuld Be Better

When connected to a large monitor or TV it would be good if you could make the bar across the top which contains the "Done" button disappear when in full screen mode.
