Tom,

I do this using similar code in both iOS and Android. It has given the same
user experience on both platforms.

FYI, I had a library interrupting the preOpenCard handler and so was not
getting the expected results that I needed. It is fixed now and this works
as expected for me.

John, I have my set allowed in the preOpen card and it works on iOS. Which
one is needed for Android???

Thanks to everyone for the sanity check.

done is to drop landscape from the allowed orientations...
