For those who side load Android apps on their Quest (1, 2, Pro, 3, etc.):
You'll notice these apps always start portrait mode and look rather limited - like on your phone.

If you start the application through "DeX MAX" however, they will open landscape mode (like on a tablet).
Don't be fooled by the filename (Tweak for Samsung) - it works!

Tried it on a Quest 3 with CX File Explorer and Amaze FileManager (all free).

I'm on the quest 3 and the dex max does work on it, but it still runs all the apps on portrait mode. You know another app or work around.

 

I miss the Samsung PhoneCast vr app that was such an amazing app the UI and functionality was spot on it's a shame they stop developing it.

Did you start DeX Max, and then in DeX Max did you select the app you'd like to run in landscape/tablet mode?
Works on my Quest 3 just fine.

Never heard of the Samsung Phonecast VR, only found this version when I tried to Google it.
