How to record horizontal videos with our Teleprompter app

Table of contents


Our teleprompter app is designed to make recording horizontal videos a breeze, whether you're creating content for presentations, social media, or any other platform. In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of recording horizontal videos, addressing common concerns and potential issues, including navigating iOS's portrait orientation lock.

Getting Started

To begin recording a horizontal video with the teleprompter app, simply turn your phone to its side (landscape orientation) before you start recording. The app's user interface (UI) will adjust accordingly, allowing you to record in landscape mode with ease.

Dealing with Orientation Lock on iOS Devices

If you're using an iOS device and find that the app's UI isn't adjusting to landscape orientation, it's likely that the portrait orientation lock is enabled. To disable the lock, follow these steps:

  1. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access the Control Center (on iPhone X or later, swipe down from the top-right corner).
  2. Locate the orientation lock icon (a padlock with a circular arrow around it).
  3. Tap the icon to disable the portrait orientation lock. The icon should turn from highlighted to dimmed.
  4. Return to the teleprompter app, and the UI should now adjust to landscape orientation.

Recording Consistency and Orientation Lock

It's important to note that the teleprompter app locks the orientation once you start recording. This is done to ensure a consistent viewing experience for your audience. If you wish to change the orientation, you will need to stop the current recording, adjust your phone's orientation, and then start a new recording.

Saving and Managing Your Horizontal Videos

Upon completing your recording, the teleprompter app will automatically save your videos inside the app. From there, you can view, edit, or share the video according to your needs.

Versatility in Recording Orientation

The teleprompter app is designed to support both portrait (vertical) and landscape (horizontal) orientations. To switch between the two, simply adjust your phone's orientation before starting your recording, and the app will take care of the rest.


Recording horizontal videos with our teleprompter app is a straightforward and user-friendly process. By ensuring your phone is in landscape orientation and disabling the portrait orientation lock on iOS devices when necessary, you can create professional-looking horizontal videos with ease.
