I believe that's the right way to do it Jacque.

I just tried it but my app works okay. It launches upside down, but is 
still in landscape, even if the launcher starts out in portrait. When I 
pick up the iPad from my desk, it rotates to the correct landscape 

I have the standalone builder set to allow both landscape options and no 
portrait options, so maybe that's the difference.
