I'd love to see that too, but any version of Android 2.2 or lower won't
support it. At least, that's what the LiveCode docs say. It's true on my
device, and I'm not sure how to work around the restriction. Most of my
other apps do rotate correctly regardless (but I have one non-LC app
that doesn't,) so there's some kind of hack that I don't know about or
LiveCode doesn't support.
I'm not sure what version of Android the Fire is running, but that may
be why this LiveCode app won't rotate.
