Summary0019663: Landscape view: little space is available to browse/view content
DescriptionOn phone devices, when the user rotates to landscape mode, there's almost no space available to view content because only about 1/3 of the view is available to display content:
- hamburger menu / breadcrumb / Search bar take up one row
- Tab navigation bar takes up another row
- MiniPlayer takes up another row

The remaining ~1/3 of the view isn't even enough to display an album in Grid view, and what can be displayed is partially obscured by the status bar!

Possible solutions would be:
1) Hide portions of the view when scrolling. i.e.
a) Collapse the first two rows when the user scrolls down / uncollapse when scrolling back up
b) Hide the status indicator once the user scrolls away from the top of the view

2) 'split' the view in a manner similar to the Playing view. e.g.
On the left (2/3):
- Hamburger menu & Tab navigation
- Content
On the right (1/3)
- View switcher & Search
- Miniplayer (would require an alternate layout)

The first solution seems simpler and better. Moreover it can be applied to the regular layout as well to provide more space for content.
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build

Here's an example of what I meant. The issue is actually quite severe as it makes browsing in landscape mode near-impossible, and it's particularly bad problematic when it comes to video since video is normally watched in landscape mode.

Both solutions sound interesting and can be combined.
However, both solutions are time-consuming to debug, affect stability, and are prone to regression. So I definitely prefer to postpone it to 2.0.1.
