Is locking display orientation against UI guidelines?

Hi there,
I'm new on this forum and I'd like to say hello to everyone here.

I've developed some simple games using Marmalade Quick during Marmalade for BlackBerry 10 Port-a-thon and got their release denied because of problems when switching orientation modes.

Because of beta-status of Marmalade 6.2 and Marmalade Quick, I would rather like to stay with portrait on BB10 and landscape on Playbook.

Can I lock orientation and get my apps aproved or is it against UI guidelines?

Re: Is locking display orientation against UI guidelines?

It is absolutely fine to lock orientation for apps. Go ahead, Lock orientation, and submit. You shouldnt have any problems.
