iOS texting issue

Since the release of the iP5 I would have figured this would be fixed but it still seems to ruin text messaging on iOS.

Can anyone explain why Apple thinks this is a good idea?

Landscape View

Look at all the wasted space. Hell half the time with the keyboard up you cant even read a msg without scrolling.

I hope that with iOS7 or some patch they would fix it so wide screen would allow for texts to "overlap" similar to portrait and not waste so much space.

Maybe I am the only one but I was wondering if anyone else saw this as an issue or found any good replacements to temp fix this issue.

BTW sorry for not having the photos embedded but I couldn't figure it out with skydrive.
