The screen size of a mobile device is limited. To work with this limited space the app resizes the widgets and toolbar to fit the screen. Sometimes rotating the device 90 degrees will make the app easier to use. There is no preferred device orientation.
The two differences in the app with mobile devices and smaller screens are widget size button and a more button on the toolbar. The widget size button either maximizes the widget to the full screen or makes is smaller. When smaller, both the map and widget can be seen at the same time. See also Map Widgets for more info on how to use the map widgets.

used to select
other widgets that are hidden.

water line. They dispaly charts, images, and links to other resources.
